A handful of these delicious *Lindt Bunnies arrived through the post last week. Each of them have a very cute ribbon attached along with a tiny bell. Red is of course original, cream one is white chocolate, brown is dark and green is hazelnut (my favourite)! Don't they look great stacked up next to my huge gold mother bunny! I have already nibbled 2 and they were delicious!
We can't really talk about Easter and not mention eggs - here is a round up of the unusual ones I came across in London the other week....should you shell out? If you fancy picking up a different type of egg then these are my best picks!
These are the Golden Parline Eggs from Fortnum & Mason at £19.50 I just love that they are gold. Bling bling...
Clarence Court is always a favourite brand of mine and this is their Goose Egg offering - forgot to see the price I am afraid but I don't think these cost too much.
I obviously saved the best to last...yes this is the EMU EGG and free range OMG!!! I touched the shell and I can tell you it's absolutely solid not to mention the distinctive colour. Since EMU's are rather large when they lay their eggs it drops on the floor so the shell is hard enough so that it won't crack open.
You are probably wondering how you open one of these things?! Right, last year I wanted an ostrich egg for my birthday (random I know) but my hubby couldn't get to London to buy one for me : ( when we finally did visited London they were out of season. During that time I had actually looked up how to open one of these things and it's simple DRILL. Use a hand drill to slowly drill open than you can put a skewer in to break the egg then shake out the egg into a bowl. Other option is obviously a hammer but the shell may go everywhere....or you can saw it open, yes I have seen youtube vids of people doing it this way! LOL Or to sound even more dramatic I have also seen someone saw one of these open, yes a saw and sawing off the tip then pouring it all out into a bow. I was planning on borrowing my boss drill and use the drill method...bet you are all laughing!
Also if you use the drill method the shell can be made into a jewellery box or ornament in your home. The Emu egg is equivalent to 16 normal eggs and they are great for family omelette's! Imagine the look on someones face when they get one of these hahaha...
Now back to my precious *Lindt Bunnies I am thinking of either putting all 4 in a big 1 year blog anniversary give away in the next 2 weeks, yes One Slice Of Lemon will be one end of May. OR I can randomly select 4 winners for the 4 different flavours?! Leave me a comment below and let me know which option you guys would prefer and which rabbit you would like!
