I have always loved Easter for a very practical reason, it comes with 2 bank holidays, a priceless commodity in this land where bank holidays are so so scarce. This year with the Royal Wedding following Easter adding another bank holiday to the mix there is even more room for cheer. Another reason why I love Easter, it provides the perfect excuse to eat my body weight equivalent of all those Easter eggs.
Easter goodies are everywhere from the supermarket to the high end chocolate boutiques. Thankfully I do not have to look any further this year as the Easter bunny at Hotel Chocolat thoughtfully provided me with a delightful hamper of chocolate goodies - the Easter Bunny Basket. The cheerful bunny packaging alone was sufficient to bring a smile to my face. So reminiscent of one's early schooldays! The milk chocolate comes in 4 different designs: chocolate Easter eggs and soldiers, a bunny lolly, an Easter slab and little tiddly chicks. I love love the tiddly chicks.
In keeping with the overall theme of the hamper the chicks are cast from a hand drawn design which give them a rustic charm. They are also the perfect size for tea time though they were so good I finished all 8 of them in one sitting! I am going to save the rest of the chocolate for TV time during the royal wedding! This is the perfect gift for a family, both children and adults would love it. Each chocolate design comes in its own packaging so each member of the family can lay claim to an item. No more fighting over Easter chocolates!
