Today was Day #23 of Chocolate Egg Appreciation Month. Easter Sunday is 3 days away, and I've been "appreciating" different types and flavors of chocolate eggs for the past three weeks.
I returned to the Valrhona plastic mother egg (that I'd obtained at a recent Chocolate Salon event) -- to try another one of the different, foil-wrapped mini eggs that were nestled inside. Today, I chose the pure dark chocolate egg (70%) wrapped in red foil, filled with a dark chocolate ganache. The elegant pattern on each egg suggested a cracked shell; perhaps the chocolate chick(s) inside decided not to hatch, due to their tasty surroundings, and became reabsorbed inside the smooth filling. However, I detected no happy chocolate chick feathers or beaks in these eggs. So I'm discarding this theory.
