Welcome to Day #27 of Chocolate Egg Appreciation Theme Month. Today's chocolate egg was brightly colored and flavored with orange. Local (SF Bay Area) chief chocolatier, Elyce, at CocoTutti produced a festively decorated orange, dark chocolate Easter egg this spring, filled with a tidy jumble of tiny orange confit truffles. But, don't let their small size fool you. These little orange chocolates were rich and full of flavor, and not too sweet. (The authentic orange flavor came from "housemade orange marmalade from Seville and Valencia oranges.")
