You Crack Me Up Hotel Chocolat - Easter Egg Review.



These extra thick shells are absolutely gorgeous.One shell is cast from their special 40% cocoa house milk chocolate and the other is milk chocolate with a dash of white which is superb.On the inside there are 10 gorgeous pieces of pure heaven! There are little solid bunnies and chicks. Piped smiley faces filled with yummy fillings like chocolate brownie or strawberry mouse.There are cute little Fried eggs with a melt away hazelnut paste and also a lovely variety of pralines including the smooth,a orange,vanilla and a crunchy one too.All of which are all to die for.Its so hard to choose which one to eat first.One of the things i love the most about Hotel Chocolat choccies is the colours! They are always so bright and dreamy.They make you wanna eat them all up after having a quick peep!








Hotel Chocolat has got one of the most beautiful ranges of Easter Eggs that i have ever seen.They are all so lovely and all all look so yummy.Each and every one has had so much hard work and love put into it that its almost a shame to eat it.There is a lovely range of extra special eggs in the Extra Thick  collection to which is what i had here to try.How exciting.

I got my mum and dad to help with this one,Even let my kids help too.
My mum loved the Crunchy Praline smiley face as she loved the delicious crunch as she bit into it.She couldn't believe how great the chocolate tasted,she's defiantly a new fan now.
My dad went for the little solid chocolate Bunnie which much to my daughters dismay but she wasn't quite quick enough,he said it was such a lovely smooth flavour which was a real treat to eat and then went to eat the poor little chick too but we managed to stop him and save it hehe.
My youngest daughter Lily wanted to try everything so i gave her some of the chocolate shell to try which she loved.I was very brave and even gave my little man a very small piece too,which he couldn't get enough off as you can see from the state of his face below.lol I'm not quite sure what Lily was dreaming of but I've got a good idea,don't you?






My favourite had too be the Strawberry Mouse smiley face,Oh my god it was so yummy,i could have eaten so many more of them.I think Hotel Chocolat should do a whole box just full of them because i loved it and was so disappointed that there was only 1.If they sell them separately i know I'd buy loads.
I have such a fab time with this review and it really gave my family a good excuse to all get together and have some fun.We each had our own favourites which clearly shows that there is something for everyone even in an eater egg.I used to think that Easter eggs were boring and just plain old chocolate but that was until i was introduced to the amazing Hotel Chocolat. Once you taste their chocolate you will never want to go back to the cheap stuff ever again,lol I know i don't.

  43. My favourite thing about easter is my memory of Easter Monday when I was 4 years old. My Dad took me to the local park to roll my eggs down the huge hills there. I didn't quite 'get' the concept and basically held my eggs in my hand and 'launched' myself down the hill!!! I was more upset that my egg had shattered all over the grass than I was about the bruises!!

  87. Mine is the egg hunt,but ours has a twist!
    We get all the neices and nephews round to my sisters,
    we boil one egg and keep the rest soft!!
    We then get the kiddies to pick and egg, crack it over there heads, and whoever gets the soft egg gets the fab big easter egg!! ok, we lie, we do actualy put more than one soft egg amongst it now, just to throw the kiddies off the scent.
    Then off to a lovely country pub for dinner.

  98. I'm not the biggest fan of Easter - that's not to say I don't scoff all the chocs! - but as a young girl I loved it. When I was young, back in the day and all that, little girls always got a new frock and shiny shoes for Easter. I so loved the racks of the pretty dresses and the anticipation of wearing the new outfit always was way greater than a meal or choccies.
