Easter treats from Hotel Chocolat – review and giveaway

No Easter is complete without a visit from the Easter Bunny.  Monkey is still at a point where he kind of believes that it’s the Easter Bunny who magics the chocolates that appear all over the garden for him to hunt down.  He still sort of believes, that Mummy is just the helper, the one who keeps secrets to make sure the fun happens.  I always try to make sure that a little reminder of our furry friend hangs around to enjoy the fun and this year it’s part of our Easter treats from Hotel Chocolat.

I, as the Easter Bunny’s assistant, recently took delivery of the Hotel Chocolat Big City Bunny and The Bunnies Basket.  Now my mission is to hide them from an unsuspecting Monkey, until the big day itself.  But they are just too cute not to share a glimpse with you today!

The 150g Big City Bunny is available in Milk or Dark Chocolate, and is very good at keeping the Easter Bunny’s secrets.  Not a word passes his lips.

All the little details, make the Big City Bunny almost to good to eat, but he is made of luscious Hotel Chocolat chocolate, so I don’t think he’ll last long, once the Easter Egg Hunt is completed here.  Although the fact he’s even got a name might way Monkey for a few moments longer.

Easter treats from Hotel ChocolatPriced at £7.50, he’s going to be visiting a lot of homes this Easter I would imagine.

Now we do love our animal friends here, and The Bunnies Basket is going to be well received I’m sure. Perfect for an Easter Egg Hunt, there are 20 individually wrapped milk chocolate Chicks and Bunnies to discover.

Easter treats from Hotel ChocolatThey are bite sized, and perfect for younger ones to enjoy.  I think our Easter Bunny is going to squirrel these away around Monkey’s farm set and see how quickly he can spot the new arrivals!  Priced at £8.00, this collection is a great way of providing Easter treats from Hotel Chocolat.

You can find a whole array of Easter delights both online and in store with Hotel Chocolat.  Gift boxing is also available, they’ll even make you a hamper up based on your selections.  There’s just too much choice.

disclosure:  we were sent the items mentioned in exchange for an honest review


It’s not only Easter next weekend, but it’s also my birthday next week.  So to celebrate I thought it was only fair to share some Easter treats with you all.  One lucky winner will receive the Hotel Chocolat Easter Pen Pals set worth £10.00.  Aren’t they just the cutest!

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
