It is such a great pleasure to show off a fantastic piece of British Tradition - The Easter Egg. No one does it better than Hotel Chocolat. The Chocolate is amazing, truly a British delicacy. For those of you who have never tried European Chocolate before you are missing out on a treat. Living in the US, I miss real Chocolate (sorry, Hershey's just doesn't cut it). Even my Hubby who has always said he is not a chocolate fan loved British chocolate when we visited in 2005 and now we fight over the treats my Mum brings over for us.
Hotel Chocolat has a great selection of treats and right now they have their Easter Eggs. All I have seen over here are Cadbury's Creme Eggs which a the tiny bite size eggs. A true Easter Egg is much larger and it hollow and usually filled with other chocolate treats or truffles.
The Hotel Chocolat website even includes Chocolate Recipes such as classic Rocky Road Brownies chocolaty treat or a sophisticated James Bond 007 styled Liquid Chocolat Martini.
