Dark Chocolate Christian Easter Egg
These are Easter eggs in the true meaning of the word.
Our chocolate moulds are hand painted with cocoa butter paint and shimmer powder. These dark chocolate eggs are decorated with white cocoa butter and a blue shimmer to resemble starlight. Inside the eggs are six mini chocolate eggs individually hand foiled in the same chocolate as the shell of the egg. The eggs are the classic symbol of new life used at Easter time.
Once the moulds are decorated our chocolate fairies pour molten chocolate in to the moulds to make the eggs that are then hollowed out and each egg has at least two thick layers of chocolate. Once the chocolates are set and demoulded they are individually painted in chocolate with a rustic cross to remind us of the true meaning of Easter.
I wanted to create a product that really spoke about what Easter is about for those people that, like me, find the holiday seasons a little too commercialised. To complete our eggs I spoke with Compassion, a truly amazing charity who are working to bring the hope and life that Easter speaks of to children and families who are living on the brink. A donation from the sale of each egg will be made to a project that Compassion are running to build kitchens at some of their projects in Sri Lanka that will be used to prepare food hygienically to feed hungry tummies with breakfast and a cooked lunch for the children who attend their projects. More information about Compassion and the amazing work that this charity do in the name of Christ can be found here.
The weight of each egg is approx. 260g (varies slightly as it's a hand made product) and the eggs stand at 12.5cm tall. They are presented wrapped in a clear cellophane bag and ribbon tied.
