Cadbury Mini Eggs Choc Tarts (Morrisons) By @Cinabar

I hope you are all enjoying the long weekend. In order to begin our celebrations for Easter, we thought we’d start out by trying these new Mini Eggs Choc Tarts from Cadbury.
There are four tarts in the box and they certainly look the part. Each one is topped with a Mini Egg, so they are perfect for Easter.

In the pastry case is a layer of spongey chocolate brownie, topped with fondant, and of course the chocolate mini egg. I took a bite and was a little surprised by just how dry they felt. The pastry is quite thick and combined with chocolate brownie, the whole thing had quite a stodgy dry texture. The fondant on top was the saving grace, but even that didn’t bring quite enough moisture or flavour for my tastebuds. Each mouthful was thick pastry first, then a hint of chocolate second. They were okay, it was nice when the chocolate tasted developed a little, but I thought they looked better than they tasted. I did enjoy the Mini Egg part though!
In conclusion these tarts are sweet, have a nice novelty factor but aren't so impressive that I’ll be missing them once the season has gone. We still have plenty of other easter goodies and chocolate to enjoy, and hope you all do too. Happy Easter.
