Hotel Chocolat You Crack me up !





This is what they say on their web site Hotel Chocolat


"An irrepressibly upbeat egg cast in 40% milk chocolate and bursting with our cheeriest chocolates, from smiley face pralines and happy chicks to classic Easter bunnies - Includes 12 chocolate brownies, cookie pralines, chocolate fried eggs, solid chocolate bunnies and chicks cast in milk and caramel chocolate and more.

The story of our 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."



Superior packaging makes for a delightful present.
And I am eyeing up the container to make use of that ...!


The Egg


Is a very thick 40% chocolate bundle of happiness.


You open it and and it just screams quality and Eat me too !








The menu invites you to a scrumptious selection of goodies




You are spoilt for choice with the menu.




What's inside the egg!


-  12 chocolate brownies, cookie pralines, chocolate fried eggs, solid chocolate bunnies and chicks cast in milk and caramel chocolate and more. 





They do make me smile....




They look so happy you don't want to eat them....






Then again perhaps you do !




The thickness of the chocolate is breathtaking.




The egg may well suit different tastes there is no need to make individual eggs for the family as they can all share this.  Now Josh liked everything whilst Mr T took some convincing of the use of sea salt within chocolate. We are educating prehistoric pallates and this egg was a brilliant starting point.



A fantastic egg, that is great value for money.
The full selection of scrumptious Easter goodies can be found Online, and the You Crack Me Up egg can be purchased online for £26, or of course you can visit one of the many shops .

(Disclosure I was sent the egg for review and my words and thoughts are entirely my own )
