Hotel Chocolat - Rocky Road To Caramel

Hotel Chocolat - Rocky Road To Caramel

This Gorgeous looking Easter Egg is the Hotel Chocolat Rocky Road to Caramel  Extra Thick Easter Egg! Doesn't it look Amazing?

The story of their extra thick eggs – When we first started making eggs 12 years ago, we were advised by industry experts to use the least amount of chocolate by making them as thin as possible and to arrange the chocolates around the outside of the egg to make it look as big as possible. We did the opposite and made ridiculously thick shells with all of the chocolates hidden inside for extra Easter excitement.

Me for one am so glad they did because this egg is Amazing. It's delicious and jam packed full of wonderful chocolate goodies for a whole family to enjoy.

Both half-shells are cast in our mellow 40% milk chocolate, with one half-shell studded with crispy puffed rice, cookies and chocolate chunks. The other half-shell with a layer of caramel chocolate over a base of milk chocolate. And inside the dreaminess continues – with praline with cookies, liquid caramel and silky smooth milk chocolate ganache along with solid bunnies and chicks cast in milk and caramel chocolate and more.

I love the new box this year, It's so pretty and topped off with a lovely satin black ribbon. Little touches like this make receiving this egg such a wonderful treat. I almost didn't want to open it but don't worry I soon did as the temptation of all that chocolatey goodness inside finally took over.

There are 14 individual chocolates inside including:

praline with cookies
liquid caramel
milk chocolate ganache
solid bunnies
chicks cast in milk and caramel chocolate
and more.

I LOVE this Egg. Every mouthful is a real delight
So many textures and flavours take flight
A moment of peace or a family event
Something for everyone after the fasting of Lent
Hotel Chocolate has out done themselves
Quick get your own whilst they're still on the shelves
There's more Eggs to choose from but this is MY fave
Makes you feel like a kid again, Its hard to behave.

The total weight is 500g and costs £26. There are available to buy from Hotel Chocolat online or in your local store. I'd recommend this Rocky Road To Caramel one but there are so many more to choose from. Why not check out their Easter Selection for your self.
