… we may have the bunny, the lamb and the chick but we all know that the egg is the ultimate symbol of Easter… the joy of renewal of life and the advent of Spring is celebrated in festivals all over the globe from Passover to Holi and for many the symbolic icon of the egg sits at the centre of these celebrations… I adore chocolate Easter eggs. It always feels like a special time of the year and even thought the chocolate we eat all year round is the same chocolate used for Easter eggs there’s something a little more magical about it. It could just be good memories from childhood and the fact that as well as Spring and lighter longer days it also mean holidays and time off from school! My brother and I were always quite competitive though and we used to inhale our Easter eggs the moment we got them. I could never understand friends who, weeks later used to boast about how many chocolate eggs they still had left… quite frankly I found it unhealthy…
… this month to celebrate Easter and this fun month that reminds many of us about being a kid I’d like the theme for the Simply Eggcellent link-up to be chocolate… of course it doesn’t just have to be Easter related and in fact Easter is very early this month so it would be a very quiet rest of the month… so i’ve gone for a more well-rounded chocolate theme and there’s so many recipes out there where eggs and chocolate are beautiful bedfellows from the glorious chocolate orange roulade … to the humble but no less fabulous chocolate custard…
how to take part in the simply eggcellent bloggers link-up
it’s really easy to take part; all you have to do is create a beautiful recipe using free-range eggs and chocolate, post it up on your blog and then link back to this post… please include my simply eggcellent badge in the post to help spread the word and use the linky tool below so that I know you’ve taken part.
