Giveaway - Hotel Chocolat

With Easter on its way I'm sure we can all be forgiven for having chocolate on our minds.  In fact, thanks to the supermarkets it has been hard to escape the lure of the Easter egg since Boxing Day!  I've never been a huge advocate of quantity over quality, always preferring one really nice egg or box of chocolates over five mediocre smarties eggs.  This year is no different, I have asked for a single box of rose and violet creams and no more, OK, maybe a creme egg or two wouldn't go amiss ;)

When Hotel Chocolat emailed me asking if I'd like to sample one of their luxury Easter Eggs I jumped at the chance.  Not only am I getting my fancy creams but a stunning quality egg too.  How delightful!  I have to admit, usually when given the choice I go for dark chocolate over milk chocolate but I simply could not resist the lure of the beautiful 40% milk chocolate Champagne Truffle Egg.  With its glorious packaging this treat really is something special. Upon lifting the ribboned lid you discover a golden egg nestled delicately upon a heaving box of champagne truffles.  Delicious!









If you'd like to be in with a chance of winning a beautiful champagne truffle egg of your own today is your lucky day.  Simply leave a comment below with a method of contact.  

Contest open to followers of Katiecakes only, winner will be chosen Friday 24th March.  
Good Luck!

Golly what a wonderful contest, my tummy is rumbling at the very thought of this egg!

I may even be good and leave it until Easter :P

Is this for UK only? I can only imagine how much it would cost (and the likelihood it would melt first) to reach the US!

I had a beautiful hotel chocolat Easter egg bought last year and kept off chocolate all lent and when Easter Sunday came round I found the box empty and my boyfriend (now ex-surprise surprise) admitted he had munched his way through it a week before! Needless to say I was totally distraught! Would love to win one! Their chocolate is DELISH!

Wowweee! I adore hotel du chocolat. The young man and I swapped fancy eggs from there a couple of years ago. That would certainly make the ton of essays I have to write over this Easter go a little quicker!

A HOPELESSLY HOPEFUL ROMANTIC said...

hotel chocolat is one of those shops that i linger outside peering through the window longingly knowing that, as a recent graduate, i really can't justify going in and spending spare cash on chocolate. so a mediocre smarties egg it is for me :) enjoy your lovely egg and creams and keep the posts coming, i check your blog every day for new posts, it's beautiful :) x
