Eggs-cellent idea from Waitrose

Bored of traditional Easter eggs? Sick of chocolate? Having a dinner party? Waitrose has come up with the fun way to celebrate the festivities.

Heston Blumenthal has come up with two limited edititon treats: Heston from Waitrose The Chocolate Scotch Egg £6/110g and Heston from Waitrose The Chocolate Teapot, £20/240g – in selected stores now.

The Chocolate Scotch Egg is a sweet twist on the picnic favourite. It’s a zesty mango and yuzu fondant yolk is encased in a smoked milk chocolate caramel ganache in the shape of an egg and coated with milk chocolate, topped with maple-crunch breadcrumbs.

Heston Blumenthal, said: “In previous years we’ve taken the idea of the typical chocolate egg and reinvented it with an unexpected twist. This year, my Scotch egg does this in a way you wouldn’t expect – sparking the imagination as you cut into it to find a curious surprise.”

And you know the phrase “useless as a chocolate tea pot”? Well, Heston has gone to town with it. Serve your friends and family an English Afternoon Tea with a teapot made from cocoa.

It includes cocoa nib ‘tea leaves’ and crunchy, melt-in-the-mouth ‘sugar cubes’ made from chocolate and flavoured with Heston’s favourite teas.

Swap your usual PG Tips for a warming black tea and ginger with a rich, dark chocolate, delicately perfumed jasmine tea in a creamy white chocolate and fragrant Earl Grey tea with mandarin in a smooth milk chocolate

Heston said: “I wanted to offer something a little extraordinary to shoppers this Easter, something fun and whimsical that we could bring to life in chocolate form. The teapot is utterly scrumptious and the ‘cubes’ that come with it contain my favourite selection of teas, which bring an array of fragrant notes and unique flavours too.”
