With Easter just around the corner, the time for overindulging in novelty chocolates and hot cross buns will soon be upon us.

Supermarket shelves might have been jam-packed with kitschy cocoa delights for weeks already, but there is seldom a suitable option for grown ups, with the majority of Easter-themed products aimed at children.

Now, in the age of inclusivity, one gourmet chocolate is tackling this culinary prejudice with a range of alcohol-flavoured Easter eggs that are most definitely not suitable for little ones.

To the delight of grown-ups everywhere, The Treat Kitchen has released a gin and tonic-flavoured egg in honour of the chocolate-fuelled holiday.

Created to compliment their gummies and hard boiled sweets of the same flavours, the Nottingham-based confectionery company has also created a strawberry and prosecco-flavoured variation.

Both eggs are made from white chocolate and cost £9.95 each.

The Treat Kitchen is a small confectionery business run by husband and wife Martin and Jess Barnett, who designed the alcohol-infused eggs in a bid to appeal to mature chocolate consumers, describing it as an "Easter egg for the adults".

While a G&T Easter egg might seem like a revelation for happy hour and chocolate aficionados everywhere, alcohol-infused Easter treats have actually been around for quite some time.

Gourmet chocolatiers Prestat released a similar product last year: a London gin and lemon-infused Easter egg (£17.50), which consists of alcoholic truffles enclosed within a white chocolate casing.

Then there’s also Hotel Chocolat’s cleverly-named “Your Eggsellency” egg (£27), which comes complete with 12 truffles, each spiked with a different tipple from whisky to cognac.

So, if your Easter egg isn’t complete without a dash of the good stuff, fear not; evidently your options are aplenty.
