I had the pleasure of sampling Ethel’s Egg Collections yesterday and I have to say, the milk chocolate strawberry truffle egg blows my childhood favorite out the water. This truffle is so delicious, it inspires me to want to learn to make it myself.
For the perfect Easter gift, you can buy the popular seasonal staple, the Fruit Egg Truffle Box (seen on right), which offers a variety of fun, springtime flavors.
The ganache-filled chocolates include strawberry, key lime, lemon and raspberry. Each gourmet chocolate egg is airbrushed by hand, giving each flavor a distinctive look and color. Every egg is freshly-made inside the Ethel M Choclate Factory. And while it’s not edible, the lime-green egg-shaped box is just as adorable as these colorful, speckled bites.
If fruit doesn’t tickle your fancy, there is also a peanut butter milk chocolate version.
And if you make it to the chocolate factory between the dates March 27-28 and April 2-4 from 1 – 5 p.m., there will be an Easter Bunny available for photos underneath the gazebo at the Botantical Cactus Garden. A face painter will be on site if you bring your kids (or just want to bring out the kid in you). All Easter activities are free.
