Regular Chocablog readers will remember they DIY Christmas Tree kit from Cocoapod and how much fun it was. So you can imagine how excited I was when this Easter Egg kit arrived on my doorstep – complete with big bag of brightly coloured sweets. Yes, I am a child.
In this kit, you get four flat egg-shaped slabs of milk chocolate, a big bag of mixed sweeties, a bag of small chocolate buttons for melting (and sticking said sweeties to said eggs), and a some miniature paintbrushes to help make the whole process even easier.
Unfortunately, the first thing I did was drop the pack containing the eggs, breaking two of them, so I decided just to decorate the two remaining eggs.
This is (one of the many reasons) why I’m not a chocolatier.
I quickly realised that even if I hadn’t broken two of the eggs, there would have been loads of sweeties and chocolate buttons left over anyway, meaning that if you buy these kits for your kids to make for friends & family, they’ll still end up with a treat at the end.
Clearly this isn’t fine chocolate, and there’s obviously loads of sugar and artificial colours in those sweeties. But it’s decent quality Belgian milk chocolate, and most importantly, it’s a lot of fun. Recommended either to create gifts, or as a way for the kids to make their own Easter Eggs and keep them quiet on Easter Sunday.
