It's Easter. That means two things: a four-day weekend and – more importantly – chocolate. There's not much that can beat tucking into your chocolate eggs in the bank holiday sun or – and all the more likely – clouds. And hey, there's no judgement here if you decide that breakfast is the perfect time to start indulging…
But when you've got four whole days off, why just stick to chocolate eggs? We've rounded up some of the best desserts, brownies, cookies, cupcakes and waffles, to add to that Easter egg hunt with the kids, or to treat your favourite people big and small. Best of all – they can be delivered.
1. Box of Ben's Favourites, Ben's Cookies
What better way to say 'Happy Easter' than with gooey, fresh-out-the-oven cookies that are bursting with Belgian chocolate? The Ben's Cookies' box of 7, 15 or 30 delights make the perfect treat.
Where: Ben's Cookies, various locations
2. Variety Box, The Brownie Box
When you're fancy something rich and indulgent, look no further than the brownies baked by The Brownie Box. Their variety box has all their classic brownie flavours to cater to every taste: Red Velvet, Ferrero Rocher, Cookies & Cream and Original. Our favourite is the Blondie, made with creamy white chocolate.
Where: The Brownie Box, London
3. Chocolate Selection Box, Hummingbird Bakery
You'd be hard-pushed to find an Easter egg more Instagram-friendly than one of Hummingbird Bakery's cupcakes. Hummingbird Bakery can send a cupcake box to serve the masses. There's twelve cakes here – three each of the chocolate, Nutella, salted caramel, and decadent Black Bottom (dark chocolate with a cheesecake centre and cream cheese frosting) varieties, or two of each if you choose the small (six) selection option. The guys here aim to bring a taste of American desserts to this side of the Atlantic, so you know they're gonna be big, bold and topped to the nines.
Where: Hummingbird Bakery, seven locations across London
4. Triple Chocolate, Wafflemeister
Easter dinner wouldn't be complete without pudding. If the usual dessert ideas aren't quite lighting you up, wander towards a waffle instead. Wafflemeister do a decadent triple chocolate version, topped with ice cream and whipped cream for a dessert overload this weekend.
Where: Wafflemeister, various locations
5. The Fior-egg-tina Pizza, Crust Bros
The guys at Crust Bros have really gotten into the Easter spirit, whipping up a special Easter themed delight. Behold, the Fior-egg-tina Pizza – a combination of all our favourite things. Your classic doughy base is topped with a sugary strawberry take on marinara, sprinkled with mint leaves, Creme Eggs and a little bit of whimsy. You can order this crazy concoction from 7th – 14th April, so indulge while you can.
Where: Crust Bros, London
