Don't worry, if it's just that little bit too early to be mentioning the big C word, you'll be pleased to know that this will strictly be just Easter chocolate

Chocolate Easter bunnies, to be exact.

Let's be absolutely honest here, we may automatically assume that this time of year is all about getting lots of chocolate eggs to scoff, but the chocolate bunny is the unsung hero ofEaster.
