I have always found Easter to be a convenient time to visit Singapore since it comes with 2 bank holidays. It also makes my hunt for presents for folks back home simpler with the galore of specially designed Easter chocolate available at this time of the year.
This year, Hotel Chocolat has kindly provided me with the Easter Bunny Basket, just one out of their many Easter gift sets. The Bunny's Biscuit contains 4 chocolate designs - chocolate Easter eggs and soldiers, a bunny lolly, an Easter slab and little tiddly chicks. The chocolate eggs and soldiers will certainly make for an interesting conversation topic.
Five milk chocolate praline filled half shells with white chocolate dressed up as fried eggs accompanied by a troop of five creamy white chocolate fingers and like real toast soldiers topped off with a dollop of yellow yolk albeit chocolate ones in this case. A witty variation of the usual Easter eggs with a nod to the all time favourite breakfast food.
Given that eggs and soldiers are not all that different from our kaya toast and eggs, I am sure fans of the latter will certainly appreciate Hotel Chocolat's version! Definitely one to pack as a souvenir or just to tease the taste buds of friends who miss their toast with kaya or not!
