Hotel Chocolat – Milk Chocolate Scrambled Egg - £15*
Also available in milk-free and dark chocolate.
Another egg post? So soon… This is the kind of egg I don’t mind eating, it’s such a novelty to eat chocolate in the shape of an egg – much more interesting than a bar. Hotel Chocolat is a brand that I have heard lots about (obviously) but had never tried – there aren’t any stores near my house. So when they offered to send me an Easter Egg to try out I had to accept.
I chose the Milk Chocolate Scrambled Egg, which is a hollow chocolate egg with a splattered chocolate effect on the sides and 6 praline chocolates. The effect on the front is really quite amazing, it looks very cool for an Easter Egg and I’m sure anyone that received it would feel a bit more special.
I shared the Scrambled Egg with my boyfriend last night and I was surprised by how thick the chocolate on the egg was (we couldn’t get it open without Karate chopping it!). The chocolate is of a very high quality and almost tastes like dark chocolate to my untrained palate, you only need a little bit at a time so the egg would last you a long time to fully devour. The little pralines are filled with soft hazelnut and are very tasty, again they are quite rich so you only need one to satisfy a chocolate craving.
If you fancy trying a Hotel Chocolat Easter Egg this year you need to order from the website today and select the Saturday delivery. You can also pop into the shop if you are lucky enough to live near one!
