I am not sure who was more excited when this fabulous Easter egg arrived, the kids, hubbie or myself! It was so beautifully presented in an attractive box.
Then inside with golden foil was the egg and chocolates nestled in paper it was hard not to get carried away! I think it was chocolate love at first sight…
Thankfully the tasting lived up to the excellent (or should that be eggscellent!) appearance of the egg. The egg shell chocolate was very thick and delicious, I have been trying to cut back a little but when a Hotel Chocolat egg lands in your house there is no self-control anymore, not until every last bit of it disappears!
The included chocolates were very moreish I would have liked to have had the opportunity to try more of them. I made do with a happy smiling chocolate brownie face whilst the boys and their friend who was here on a playdate demolished the rest, the one I tried was heavenly crispy chocolate buttercream encased in milk chocolate.
You Crack Me Up costs £28 and is such a blissful indulgent treat. It’s hard not to feel cheery when the chocolate look so happy!
I think we will be hard pushed to have Easter eggs from anywhere else now. They do cost more from Hotel Chocolat but they are such an extravagance that you can stomach the cost (especially as the chocolate is so thick, not like some disappointedly wafer thin eggs you can get!).
I quite fancy the Rocky Road to Caramel one next but if hubbie did spoil me with that one, I think I would enjoy it after the boys have gone to sleep… so I can savour every last mouthful! I think I have been ruined now, no Easter eggs will ever compare after my Hotel Chocolat experience. I would say though a Hotel Chocolat egg lasts longer because they are so rich and decadent you only need a small piece of the extra thick shell to feel satisfied!
