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.
