Happy Easter! Hotel Chocolat, a luxury British chocolatier recently contacted me to taste test their Cow Beastie Egg. Who could resist?

hotelchocolateSnatching the box from the courier I sat down to ‘taste’ aka devour the Beastie Egg. The perfect task for getting into the Easter spirit and for forgetting the freezing temperatures outside. I particularly liked the glamorous presentation and unusual cow pattern. The main egg had a nice thickness to it, with a strong but sweet cocoa flavour emanating from the crisp chocolate. 6 mini eggs in two flavours where also included. The praline mini eggs where my favorite, filled with a rich nutty cream. The salted caramel mini eggs had thick outer shells with oozy fillings. A bit too sweet for me, but my helper-tester gobbled them down without any persuasion.

What delicious treats do you have in store this Easter?
