19 of the best kids' Easter eggs for 2022

We don’t know about you, but we’re already very excited about Easter, in particular about the chocolatey treats that might be bestowed upon us. If we’re this excited as fully grown adults, imagine how excited all the kids are. Let’s face it, there is nothing more exciting as a child than receiving an egg entirely made from chocolate. Now, while we know that the Easter Bunny is obviously on hand to help out with Easter eggs, all you parents out there should still know what’s on offer just in case...

It’s important to remember that our favourite Easter eggs won’t necessarily be the children’s favourites though. Kids care far less about quality of tempering or the percentage of dark chocolate; instead they are all about what’s drawn on the egg, whether it comes with anything like a toy or extra sweets, and also what the packaging looks like.

Luckily, retailers have caught on and nowadays sell a huge variety of Easter eggs specifically for children. From TV characters like Peppa Pig, all the way through to Hot Wheels, they all have their own Easter eggs now, meaning that it’s sometimes tough to know which one you should go for.

That is why below we’ve rounded up some of this year's best kids' Easter eggs so that you know where to start. We’ve tried to include a mixture of different types of chocolate, as well as eggs covering a range of budgets. We’ve even included a few vegan eggs for children who can’t eat dairy. What we can safely say though is that your children won’t be disappointed with any of these.

Once you’ve decided on the perfect egg, all you have to do is click through and purchase it – easy as pie. It will save you lots of stress too, because nobody wants to be panicking about Easter Eggs on Easter Saturday.

Luxury kids' Easter eggs

Cookie Dough and Ice Cream Sandwich

What: The stuff of childhood dreams, this creation from Hotel Chocolat combines the flavours of cookie dough and ice cream and turns them into a chocolate sandwiched-shaped Easter egg. We’re pretty confident in saying this will be a hit. Prefer your sandwich with a different filling? There are all kinds of iterations of this quirky shape – from toast and marmalade through to ‘lamb’ and mint, where the lamb (thankfully) is a cuddly-looking white chocolate character.

Kids' Easter eggs with toys

Children are obssessed with both toys and also characters from their favourite films and TV shows, so there's nothing more exciting than when an egg comes with a free toy or their favourite character appears on the front of the box

Cadbury Peter Rabbit Egg

What: Who doesn’t love Peter Rabbit? The Beatrix Potter bunny is perhaps one of children’s literature’s most famous characters and this year Cadbury have designed an egg to celebrate the Peter Rabbit film. The small Cadbury milk chocolate egg is the perfect size for younger children and comes with an adorable Peter Rabbit cuddly toy too.

Made ears-to-trotters in bright pink chocolate, young kids will take much delight in seeing this cute character in egg-form, with him tasting creamier than ever.

Tony's Chocolonely Egg-stra Special Chocolate Eggs

What: While the little guys in your life might primarily be concerned with what’s inside this sweet egg carton (dark, dark milk, milk, white chocolate hazelnut, nougat, caramel, almond, raspberry, popping sugar and sea salt eggs FYI), from a grown-up persepcive it’s comforting to know these creations are a touch more ethical than others.

M&S Inky the Chocolate Octopus

What: Who couldn’t be cheered by this chap’s face? Inky the octopus might not be a traditional Easter character, but he is made from good old fashioned milk chocolate (which as most children know, is the best). The design is true to form with curling tentacles and rosy-red cheeks, plus the kind of peaceful expression that only comes with being able to hold eight Easter eggs at once.
How much: £5

Lindt Gold Bunny Large Egg

What: Lindt’s gold bunnies are as synonymous with Easter as roast lamb these days, with their shiny gold wrappers, pretty red bows and dinky bells.
