Eggscellent! (œufs surprise from Patrick Roger)

On Friday evening, I came home to a beautiful green bag sitting on the table. Inside, a box of eggs, and these are no ordinary eggs ;)

Patrick Roger produces these specifically for Easter. The eggs have previously been emptied and thoroughly cleaned, before an even coating of dark chocolate was set within the eggs. Then, soft praline is piped into the core and finally sealed off with a dark chocolate button. Voilà! I’ll let the pictures (hover over them for captions) do the talking.

On the other hand, I’m not sure that my photographic skill does them justice though…

Weeeeell, that’s it folks. We were too eager to have a taste that we couldn’t really wait to get the right lighting etc, or even clean the plate for a tidy shot! In fact, the last shot was taken only after we’ve eaten half the egg away!

I absolutely adore the egg but Frédéric found the praline a little too sweet for his liking. Then again, his preference of chocolate runs on the dark side – the darker the better. These babies are not cheap, but as an once-a-year treat, it’s worth splurging on.

Happy Easter everyone, and may you have a fruitful chocolate hunt! In the mean time, I’m off to a THATLou hunt with Daisy de Plume :D
