Easter is nearly on its way, and if you are looking for a last minute stocking filling I think you should take a peak in M&S. There were quite a few lovely goodies in there, but it was these chocolate bunnies by the till that caught my eye. I had only popped in to purchase a couple of boring groceries, but I guess that is why they put the temptations next to the queue!
At first I thought they were just caramel filled, but then I realised that they had an extra bonus and contained chocolate truffle and crispy pieces too. I opened up the bright yellow wrapper, and found a very sweet looking chocolate bunny. I liked the detail on the moulding; even the whiskers were neatly present. Obviously the next thing I did was bit his head off... well you sort of have too!
The chocolate was sweet and creamy and left a thick rich melt in the mouth. The caramel was really good, it was buttery with a hint of salt and managed to add a lovely toffee tone to the overall flavour. The other half of the rabbit contained a rich dark chocolate truffle that was full of cocoa taste, and has what seemed to be specks of rice crispy pieces to give texture.
I have to say it was an impressively posh and enjoyable Easter treat, well worth checking out. :-)
