Baravelli’s Artisan Chocolatiers of Conwy in Wales has created a beautiful, hand-painted giant Easter egg to raise money for Red Cross humanitarian aid in Ukraine.

The 10kg egg is being raffled with all donations of any size going towards the prize draw on 19 April 2022.

Baravelli’s holds over 50 awards for its recipes, including International Chocolate Awards, The Academy of Chocolate, Great Taste and Wales the True Taste. It is a pioneer in leading the trends of both flavour and design in chocolate and was the first first in Wales to produce 'Bean to Bar' chocolate - and still prides itself in making absolutely everything it sells on the premises.

The special egg has been designed, hand painted and cast by Master Chocolatier Emma Baravelli. The design shows evening sunlight shining on Ukrainian fields of wheat and sunflowers in the foreground. A deep blue background represents the sky, mountains and streams of the Ukrainian countryside.

We have all seen the devastating and heart-breaking scenes coming from Ukraine in recent weeks. Throughout the humanitarian crisis sparked by this conflict, the British Red Cross has been providing aid to help civilians on the ground. They are distributing food and hygiene parcels, warm clothing and training civilians in first aid. It is an organisation and a cause that Baravelli’s is extremely proud to support​,” she said.
