THE PEACOCK EGG is made with pure Belgian milk chocolate and decorated with an intricate hand pipped pure Belgian white chocolate “mendhi” design. No icing sugar or corn starch tricks used – it is all about the taste and the chocolate!! The egg is packed with our £6 Easter truffle presentation box (see below).

Product Description

Preorder Now. Last preorder 2pm Thursday 24th March 2016 for collection by 2pm Saturday 26th March 2016.

All our Easter eggs are giant and hand made by artisan chocolatiers in our chocolaterie in Birmingham’s Historic Jewellery Quarter so, any two will NEVER look the same. Because they are not mass produced by machines we can make them with an incredibly thick shell that we guarantee will be a challenge to break. Handmade eggs are cast in two parts, which are joined together after we fill them. That means when you finally get into it there is more luxury chocolate inside!

You will find a £6 box of handmade chocolate truffles, all gift wrapped in a presentation box inside the eggs. The flavours will be 2 Strawberry and balsamic vinegar caramels in a milk chocolate shell and 2 Lemon and Lime white ganaches in a white chocolate shell. As it is Easter and Fresh is the name of the game they are both made with fruit puree (no artificial flavours). This will provide a fresher and lighter taste than synthetic flavours or natural oil based flavouring techniques the shelf life is 3 months.

Each egg is hand wrapped and ribboned and then placed into a transparent presentation box or for £5 we will package it into a traditional wooden basket. Also every egg gets a free baby chick cuddly toy (while stocks last).

Customers must pre order on-line or in store to guarantee the egg they want in time for Easter (normally available 24-48 hours after pre-order). There can be a rush on eggs the week before Easter and we can run out of particular styles if you do not pre-book.
