Hotel Chocolat Rocky Road to Caramel Extra Thick Egg Competition (@HotelChocolat) [By @Cinabar]

Hotel Chocolat Rocky Road to Caramel Extra Thick Egg Competition (@HotelChocolat) [By @Cinabar]

The very lovely folks from Hotel Chocolat have sent us one of their fantastic Extra Thick Eggs to review, and we have one to offer up as a competition prize to one of our lucky readers.

The egg is presented in the most fabulous box with a big bow on top. When you open it up there is an egg in gold paper inside. It is presented in two halves, each half contains six chocolates, so there are 12 in total. Each side of the egg is different too, which is fun.

The first half we went for was the Rocky Road side. It is a milk chocolate but at 40% coca does look a lot darker than some. Packed on to the side of the egg, to make it extra extra thick if you like, is a chocolate layer with puffed rice and biscuit bits. I went to break some off and had to get my muscles moving as this is chocolate is thick, impressively so.
The chocolate had a fab rich flavour, the quality is spot on. If you’ve never tried Hotel Chocolat chocolate before you are missing out, it is in a league of its own. It is sharp to break, but a good thick smooth melt in the mouth. I loved the crunchy bits in the outer coating. The combination of this and rich milk chocolate were a match made in heaven, fun to eat with a perfect mix of textures.

The second side of the egg is the Caramel Chocolate side. It is lighter in colour and a warmer shade. I loved this too as I have a sweet tooth, so this was right up my street. The chocolate has the wonderful soothing tones of toffee and caramel wrapped into to the thick melt. It's soothing chocolate, that is an absolute pleasure to eat, perfect for those with a sweet tooth.

Some of the chocolates in the box are Easter themed, there are chocolate bunnies filled with either caramel or, my favourite, nutty praline. There is a Hot Cross Bun truffle too, which has a lovely hint of cinnamon. But there is a good selection of chocs, whether you like Salted Caramels, Orange Wafers or fun chocolates like the Billionaire’s Shortbread.

There is a lot of chocolate in the box, I know Hotel Chocolat isn’t cheap, but these eggs have a lot of contents and the chocolates themsleves are so worth it, they are really something special.
