Hotel Chocolat The Ostrich Easter Egg

The Ostrich Egg is presented in ribbon tied hat box with splashes of gold. The very impressive Ostrich Easter egg is £75.00, and weighs just over a kilo in weight.

Extra Thick Easter Eggs

Hotel Chocolat’s Extra Thick Easter eggs are fast becoming a must have for Easter, these luxury Easter eggs are very popular; large Easter eggs with two chunky extra thick shell halves filled with a selection of Easter chocolates inside matching the flavours and type of chocolate the egg is made from.

In total there are seven Hotel Chocolat Extra Thick Easter eggs in different combinations of milk, white or dark chocolate:

Caramel Chocolate Extra Thick Easter Egg

Dark Chocolate Extra Thick Easter Egg

Rocky Road to Caramel, a milk chocolate extra thick egg, the Rocky Road half is 40% milk chocolate covered in crispy puffed rice, cookies and chocolate chunks and the caramel half is also 40% cocoa with a layer of caramel chocolate, accompanied by twelve milk chocolate Easter chocolates.

The Facet Easter Egg

Hotel Chocolat’s Facet Egg, this quirky egg, which was introduced last year, is both unusual and interesting.

Also made with milk chocolate, but Milk-Free chocolate, is the Milk-Free milk chocolate Scrambled Easter egg, and as the name suggests the chocolate is dairy free and vegan as the milk element has been removed from the chocolate and replace with almond powder, the egg also comes with six Nutty Fruitcases, made with the same Milk-Free chocolate.

Easter Egg Monsters

A trio of Easter egg monsters from The Chocolate Trading Company, cute and not really that monstrously scary, these novelty milk chocolate eggs add a twist and some fun to the classic Easter egg.

The green monster Easter egg has probably the scariest monster face, green lips, which look a little like teeth, googly eyes and a tiny green hat on top.

Green Monster Easter Egg

Pink Monster Easter Egg

The pink monster Easter egg is really quite charming, pink lips shaped like a love heart, the same eyes – but they seem less google and a cute bow on top also in pink.

Orange Monster Easter Egg

And the orange monster Easter egg is a little lopsided, with a wide orange smile and an orange coloured button nose, rather than a hat or a bow.

All three eggs are the same size, the orange smiley face egg does look smaller but it is just on its side the other two eggs; the green monster face and the pink pretty face are end on.

Cute monster Easter eggs, each with feet and a monster face, not very scary – but they are perfect for little monsters.

£4.45, each, 45g.

Labelled: Alcohol Free and Soya Free.

Novelty Easter eggs from The Chocolate Trading Company.

The Giant Easter Egg

March 27, 2015
Filed under: Giant Easter Eggs,Milk Chocolate Easter Eggs

The Giant Easter egg, this massive Easter egg, from James Chocolates, is one of the biggest eggs you can buy for Easter 2015.

The Giant Easter Egg

Made by James Chocolates this massive egg is made with 2.5kg of milk chocolate, decorated with chocolate dust and large chocolate buttons with letters on, which spell out “Happy Easter”. This very impressive egg stands over 40cm high and 30cm at the widest point, because it is so big the egg has its own chocolate stand, so it doesn’t roll over, made from chocolate at the base of the giant egg.

The Giant Easter egg is presented in clear cellophane, presumable because they can’t find a box big enough, and tied with a James Chocolates ribbon. A very big egg!!

£79.99, for a massive 2.5kg of chocolate.

One of the fun things from Firebox.

Chococo Lemon & Raspberry Easter Egg

Chococo’s Lemon & Raspberry Easter Egg, a milk chocolate egg with candied lemon and dried raspberries, a colourful and scrumptious Easter egg from Chococo.

Chococo Lemon & Raspberry Easter Egg

New for Easter 2015 and made with 43% cocoa, Venezuelan, milk chocolate the Chococo Lemon & Raspberry Easter Egg is decorated on the outside with swirls and splashes of white and pink, which is naturally coloured white chocolate, and the inside of the egg is studded with candied lemon and dried raspberries.

Lemon and raspberry doesn’t sound like a flavour combination that’s goes well with chocolate, it sounds too sharp and sour, but one thing in have learnt is that chocolate changes flavours and how the flavours are prepared also makes a difference.

The raspberry is freeze dried so you get a little crunch with a bust of zesty raspberry flavour and as the lemon is candied it’s sweet with just the taste of lemon, with no bitterness or sharpness.

Chococo Lemon & Raspberry Easter Egg

When you crack open the egg, you are presented with a layers of milk chocolate covering the fruit inside; large chunky sections of candied lemon and small pieces of raspberry with a hint of colour showing through.

It is not until you crack the shell the true colours show appears, bright reds and mellow yellows emerge from the brown chocolate.

Sweet and sticky with bursts of fruit which work perfectly with the rich milk chocolate, a fun egg with texture, flavour and a splash of colour – a must try!

£9.50, 175g

Labelled: Vegetarian and Gluten Free.

The best fun Easter eggs for kids, 2015, the most popular and most fun chocolate Easter eggs for children this Easter.

Chococo Robot Easter Egg

The Chococo Robot Easter Egg, or to give it it’s proper title the “C181 Robot Egg Easter Egg” a new egg for 2015 made from milk chocolate by Chococo.

Chococo Robot Easter Egg

When I first heard about this egg, all I knew about it was that it was a milk chocolate egg with a chocolate robot inside, rather intriguing – but nothing to get too excited about, so I gave it a try and I am so glad I did. Chococo have worked their chocolate magic (again!) and turned what could have been, quite frankly, a dull and plain egg into a fun, delicious and imaginative egg.

The outside of the Chococo Robot Easter Egg is dusted with edible silver, which gives the shell a shimmer and makes it look like it comes from outer space, a bit like you would expect a moon rock to look like. When you crack the egg open you find two C181 milk chocolate robots inside, dusted with edible gold and surrounded by mini gold ingots of sugar, embedded in the chocolate. Making it look like the egg is a chocolate spaceship and the chocolate robots have just landed!

Chococo C181 Robot Easter Egg Shell

Neither the silver or gold shimmers, on the outside of the egg or on the C181 robot inside, effect the flavour of the chocolate which is 43% cocoa Venezuelan milk chocolate, which has a rich flavour and just melts in the mouth. All of Chococo’s milk chocolate Easter eggs use the same 43% cocoa chocolate, the flavour is robust enough to stand by itself but doesn’t over power other flavours, and it simple a delight to eat.

Handmade in the UK, in the “The Chocolate Shed” a few miles from Swanage, Dorset by someone that must be covered head to toe in edible shimmer!

The C181 robot is the little brother of the BroBot, who is also available in the same milk chocolate and gold shimmer.

£9.50, 175g

Labelled: Vegetarian and Gluten Free.
