There is no shortage of chocolate treats at Easter, but Lidl has only gone and added more to the mix with their new Deluxe Triple Chocolate Hot Cross Buns – the ultimate hot cross bun for chocolate lovers.

Crafted from a delicious chocolate flavoured dough, dotted with decadent milk and white chocolate chunks, Lidl's Deluxe Triple Chocolate Hot Cross Buns are designed for chocolate lovers and a pack of four costs just 99p.

The real question is whether to pair them with butter or chocolate spread?

The Deluxe Hot Cross Bun range also includes spicy Apple and Cinnamon, fruity Very Berry, and the much-loved classic Luxury Hot Cross Buns.

The Apple and Cinnamon are warmly spiced and filled with apple pieces while the berry versions are loaded with berries, as well as traditional flavours of orange soaked sultanas and mixed peel.

If classic is more your style, the iconic Deluxe Luxury Hot Cross Buns are a great choice.

The soft fruit-filled buns are finished with a drop of honey to give them a tasty glazed appearance.

Available in store now, a pack of four hot cross buns cost just 99p.

Meanwhile, M&S has divided shoppers with its take on the humble hot cross bun with its chilli and cheese version.

The retailer's new Chilli & Cheese Hot Cross Buns are made from West Country Farmhouse cheddar, caramelised and dried fried onions, dried red and green jalapeno and chipotle chillies with Worcester and red pepper sauces.
