Easter is Coming, the Eggs are Getting Fat!



Well, they are over at Hotel Chocolat, where they sell a fabulous range of Easter Gifts, including the thickest, most glorious Easter eggs ever!

This year, when I got the choice, I decided to try the You Crack Me Up Egg. I just couldn't resist those cheeky little faces.

The egg is as thick as ever, which I think you will agree is a good trait in a chocolate egg. This one is 40% milk chocolate, but one of the egg halves has a wash of white chocolate over it, which I thought was a really nice touch.

I loved the wee smiley faces inside, especially the the orange praline and the strawberry mousse. I always go for the fruit flavours. If we were to share a box of chocolates, then I would want to eat the fruit creams and would happily leave you the chocolate with nuts.

There was also milk praline fried eggs, cocoa pod bunnies, chirpy chicks and a selection of wee faces in chocolate brownie, smooth praline, vanilla butter cream and crunchy praline. Funnily enough I like the nuts in praline, but then they aren't so overpowering.

If you would like to try this eggful of luscious, thick chocolate, with a generous selection of cheeky chocolates then you might like to take part in my giveaway.

  14. Oh this looks so lovely and delicious, I'd never be able to spend the money and treat myself to something like that and Chloe's too young to use her an an excuse to buy it for!

    The little ones inside are so cute though I might have trouble eating them if I had one!
