Well, dear readers. I have the perfect alternative for the drinks and chocolate lovers in your life. Chocolatey, alcoholic, drinkable Easter gifts! Here's a round up of some of the best out there!
Firebox for £19.99
It really works, isn't too sweet, but borrows its taste and aroma from creme de cacao and absinthe - a deadly mix - anise, chocolate & candied fennel...
Awarded 'Outstanding' at the 2013 International Liqueur Awards. Try it in a Mocha Martini, and get a bottle for the cabinet from The Whisky Exchange for £30.25.
Get it from The Whisky Exchange for £10.95
Simply chocolatey, creamy goodness, with a little tiny warmth at the end to remind you to slow down and sip. Perfect chilled, or over a few cubes of ice.
Unlike its egg shaped counterparts, you won't find this stuff available in Thorntons as their retail stores don't have an off-trade alcohol licence, but you can grab a bottle at all the big supermarkets, although it's only £10 at Tesco until mid-April! Get your Clubcard out...
Again Irish whiskey based, this stuff is great added to a hot chocolate, or over ice cream.
A bit more expensive at £15 for 500ml from Waitrose or Asda.
Have a great Easter, and enjoy the 4 days off!
