I have been very lucky (again!) and received a lovely Easter Egg from Hotel Chocolat to review. This time I received the Rocky Road To Caramel Extra Thick Easter Egg. I love Rocky Road and quite often make my own so I was interested to see how it would compare.
I loved the presentation of the egg in a big hat box type thing with a black ribbon wrapped around the top. Inside there are two halves of the egg both made with 40% milk chocolate. One half is 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 there are a variety of chocolates including rabbits and chicks in milk chocolate, praline and truffle. This is my most favourite Hotel Chocolat thing so far. It is right up my street. The milk chocolate, the caramel and all the different textures make it the perfect Easter egg. It is beyond the normal and makes an exciting gift for a chocolate lover. The only downside is the price which is £26. This is quite expensive for an Easter egg but it is big enough to share (if you want to that is!)
Many thanks to Beth at Jam and Cream PR and Hotel Chocolat for sending me the egg to review
