Easter treats are around the corner
Everyone with a sweet tooth can get excited
Easter traditions are different all over the world. One thing that all festivities have in common are the sweets that are served during the easter holidays. Easter is one of the strongest days for chocolate producers all year. In the supermarket you can find all sorts and forms of chocolate variations like chocolate bunnies, chocolate eggs or chocolate nests. But it is the same stuff you can find every year. Boring right? Time to step up your easter treat game. Some of the world’s best chefs and cafes have created easter treats like you won’t find anywhere else.
We created a list with some of our favorite easter treats and where to find them:
1. La Pâtisserie du Meurice par Cédric Grolet in Paris
He perfectly executed chocolate inside of a chocolate egg. The current world’s best pastry chef according to worlds50best is turning everything he creates into caloric gold. You won’t find many chocolate eggs as tasty as those. His store in Paris is always worth a visit.
2. Heston Blumenthal x Waitrose
One of Britains most creative chefs joined forces with retailer Waitrose to create chocolate Scotch Eggs. A British pub classic turned into chocolate. No wonder these eggs sold out in a short amount of time. There is still a slight glimpse of hope that Waitrose is going to restock those chocolate eggs before easter.

A British picnic favourite sweetly reinvented for Easter: meet the chocolate scotch egg. Milk chocolate maple crunch replaces breadcrumbs, the meat is now a delicately smoked milk chocolate caramel ganache while a zesty mango and yuzu fondant forms the golden yolk at the centre. The perfect "snack" for Easter. #Heston #HestonBlumenthal #HestonfromWaitrose #Chocolate #Easter #ScotchEgg #Mango #Yuzu #Ganache #Instagood #Instafood
3. Bakehouse in Hongkong
If there is anything like traditional easter treats in Britain it is the Hot Cross Bun. In case you are not familiar with a Hot Cross bun – it is a spiced sweet bun made with currants or raisins, marked with a cross on the top, and traditionally eaten on Good Friday in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and South Africa. It has also made its way to Hong Kong and Bakehouse executed them in perfection.
4. Cracco in Milan
What the Hot Cross Bun is to the people from the UK , is the Colombe di Pasqua to the Italians. The dough of the Colombe is similar to the Pantone however it doesn’t contain candid peel nor raisins. The shape resembles the form of a dove the ultimate symbol of peace.
5. Maelu in Munich
Easter eggs are extremely popular around the easter holidays. Maelu Cafe in Munich have created Easter eggs with a design twist. Forget the boring supermarket chocolate eggs and treat yourself with some real creative chocolate eggs.
6. Dominique Ansel in London
When it comes to creative baking there are not as many patisserie chefs as Dominique Ansel. The creator of the Cronut and other countless patisserie inventions is spoiling us with another creative twist. He transformed the soft boiled breakfast egg into a chocolate easter treat. You can preorder your treats on his website in order to skip the queue.
