THIS is how Yorkshire does Easter Eggs: Watch Bettys make its huge Imperial chocolate eggs

Yorkshire chocolatiers create 5.4kg, 50cm tall Easter Eggs — your mouth is guaranteed to water

Watching this video might give you an enormous urge to go scoff some chocolate.

This is how Yorkshire does Easter eggs: half a metre tall, more than five kilos in weight and beautifully hand decorated.

Bettys, the Yorkshire company behind the famous tearooms in Harrogate, Ilkley, Northallerton and York, makes these bespoke eggs every Easter.

Named after the Imperial Suite on the first floor of its Cafe Tea Rooms in Harrogate, the hand-crafted eggs contain 5.4 kilos of the finest Grand Cru Swiss chocolate.

Each egg stands 50cm high and is hand decorated with sugar flowers individually created and painted by highly skilled cake decorators at the Bettys Craft Bakery in Harrogate.

The Imperial range includes milk or dark chocolate eggs: the Spring Flowers Egg or the Sweet Pea Egg.

But —brace yourself — these giant, luxurious eggs cost £200-£250 each.

Family-run Bettys has been hand-crafting Easter eggs for almost 100 years, keeping alive the skills of its founder, Swiss Master Chocolatier Frederick Belmont.

The team of chocolatiers make around 24,000 eggs for the shops at Bettys six cafe tea rooms and for its online shop.
