Milk & Dark Chocolate Ocean Studded Eggs from Chococo

NEW Milk & Dark Chocolate Ocean Studded Eggs (£12.50/175g – or 2 for £22.50) – With Chococo being founded on the Dorset coast, and the founders’ love of sailing and the sea, it seems only fitting that it has created these two ocean inspired eggs. 50p from the sale of each egg will be donated to the SEA LIFE Trust, a marine conservation charity based in Dorset, dedicated to protecting the world’s oceans and marine life, including turtles, via marine conservation projects and campaigns to inspire change.

The Milk Chocolate Ocean Studded Egg is made from 45% Venezuela origin milk chocolate, with its rich cocoa flavour notes and lower sugar level than many other milk chocolates, it is hand-decorated with naturally coloured cocoa butter and a touch of edible shimmer to create a magical waves effect! Inside the egg nestle milk chocolate starfish and turtles.

www.chococo.co.uk/milk-chocolate-ocean-studded-egg.html

The Dark Chocolate Ocean Studded Egg is made from 67% Madagascar origin dark chocolate, with its red berry fruit notes and soft finish on the palette, it is hand-decorated with naturally coloured cocoa butter and a touch of edible shimmer to create a magical waves effect! Inside the egg nestle dark chocolate starfish and turtles. This egg is naturally dairy-free and vegan-friendly.

www.chococo.co.uk/dark-chocolate-ocean-egg.html

Carefully developed by the team, led by founders Claire and Andy Burnet, all the gifts are freshly handmade in Purbeck, Dorset, from fine origin chocolate from Madagascar (dark chocolate 67% cocoa, 65% milk chocolate cocoa, 40% vegan cashew milc), Venezuela (milk chocolate 45%) and Colombia (white chocolate). Chococo has always been a firm believer in working with chocolate high in cocoa solids and low in sugar, as it believes in giving its customers a fine chocolate, not a sugar, experience.

Chococo cares about the impact of its packaging on the environment and always has done – since launching back in 2002, its iconic selection boxes have always only ever had cardboard grids inside to hold each chocolate in place, never plastic vac forms. All Chococo’s gifts for Easter 2020 are in packaging that is either recyclable, recycled or compostable. For more information please see the notes to editors section.

All the items listed below are available online on its website www.chococo.co.uk and from Chococo’s four Chocolate Houses in Swanage, Dorset; Winchester, Hampshire; Exeter, Devon and Horsham, West Sussex. Alternatively you can call 01929 421777 to order some Easter goodies.

NEW Easter Cheese Cake (£60.00/ for 10-12 people/Free delivery when ordered online) – A striking cheese cake, including spring-themed goats’ and sheep’s milk cheeses to place on the table for enjoyment over the Easter weekend. It is constructed from the following cheeses:

Dorset Goat (200g) (pasteurised, vegetarian rennet) – This little black-waxed goats cheese is specially made for Paxtons at a creamery nestled between the Dorset Downs and the West Dorset heritage coast. The cheese has a clean mellow and slightly sweet flavour, with subtle notes of goat, and a smooth, firm texture.
Camembert de Normandie PDO* (250g) (unpasteurised, traditional rennet) – A great example of one of France’s iconic cheeses with a fruity yet earthy flavour and a supple texture. Paxton & Whitfield’s Camembert de Normandie PDO* is made on the continental coast halfway between the sea and the rich meadows of Normandy.
Sheep Rustler (850g) (thermised ewes’ milk, vegetarian rennet) – An award-winning, washed-rind cheese made by White Lake Cheese at its dairy in Pylle, Somerset. The Dairy was set up by cheesemakers Roger Longman and Peter Humphries in 2005. The cheese is made using thermised ewes’ milk and once made is aged for around three months. The result is a semi-hard cheese with a medium, mellow flavour that is slightly nutty with a hint of caramel. It got its name from one of the cheesemakers, Russell, who made the first batch.

The cheeses will be delivered with a leaflet, showing you how to assemble your cake. So get creative and decorate with daffodils, chicks and eggs!

NEW Easter Cheeseboard (for 6/12/24 people £20.00/£37.50/£75.00) – A pre-selected, seasonal cheese board freshly cut by our expert cheesemongers. With three different price points, you can scale up for the number of visitors you have over the Easter holiday. Packed with delicious flavours it includes:

Cashel Blue (250g/500g/1kg) (Pasteurised, vegetarian rennet) – Made by Jane and Louis Grubb near Cashel in Country Tipperary, this semi-soft blue cheese was first produced in 1984. It is a unique cheese as it was Ireland’s first farmhouse blue cheese. It has a firm texture that takes on a soft, almost spreadable texture as it ages. It has a mellow, subtle and creamy flavour. This cheese was a 2019 World Cheese Award winner.
Fleur de Sologne (1/2/4) (80g each) (Unpasteurised, traditional rennet) – A pretty soft French goats’ milk cheese with a natural, ash covered rind. Fleur de Sologne is produced in the heart of the Sologne region in Central France. It has a fine smooth body and a subtle milky goat flavour.
Gorwydd Caerphilly (250g/500g/1kg) (Unpasteurised cows’ milk, traditional rennet) – This handmade Caerphilly is made to a traditional recipe using raw cows’ milk and animal rennet.  Gorwydd Caerphilly ripens slowly from the rind, which gives it a stripy interior and a crumbly centre. When young the cheese has a lemony fresh tasting tang but as it matures the flavour changes to become more intense with an added creaminess.
EVER-POPULAR Spring Cheese Collection (£44.00) – A tempting collection of cheeses, perfect to enjoy during the spring. It includes:

Crozier Blue (250g) (Pasteurised, vegetarian rennet) – This is a sheep’s milk cheese made by Cashel Farmhouse Cheesemakers in Country Tipperary, Southern Ireland. The Grubb family, who own the dairy, have been farming in the area since the 16th Century. Louis Grubb and his family have been making cheese there since the early 1980s. Crozier Blue has a rich and well-rounded flavour, it is gently salty with a distinctly rich creamy texture, offset by a touch of spice.

Fleur de Sologne (80g) (Unpasteurised, traditional rennet) – A pretty soft French goats’ milk cheese with a natural, ash covered rind. Fleur de Sologne is produced in the heart of the Sologne region in Central France. It has a fine smooth body and a subtle milky goat flavour.
Kirkham’s Lancashire (250g) (Unpasteurised, traditional rennet) – A superb example of a traditional farmhouse cheese, this Lancashire is made by Graham Kirkham in the “black land of Fylde” north of Preston in Lancashire where the pasture land is near the Irish sea. The cheese is buttery with a hint of sharpness.

Rollright (250g) (Pasteurised, traditional rennet) – This cheese is the creation of David Jowett a young British cheesemaker. David makes this cheese at King Stone Dairy in Little Rollright, Oxfordshire. Each cheese has a piece of spruce bark wrapped around its outside edge, this helps to ‘hold’ the cheese during maturation but also adds a little flavour. The spruce comes from the Jura mountains, located in eastern France near the Swiss border, and is the same wood that is used to ‘hold’ Mont d’Or cheese during its maturation. Rollright has a peachy coloured rind that complements the pale, unctuous inner paste. It has a delicious full flavour that is savoury and meaty with hints of sweet buttery notes.

Pear & Vanilla Confit for Hard Cheese – The classic flavour of pear with just a hint of vanilla is perfect for this cheese selection.

Biscuits for Cheese Selection Box – A selection box containing individually wrapped packets of each of the four following varieties: Rosemary Wafers – delicious with territorials and soft cheeses; Charcoal Crackers – for goats’ and sheep’s milk cheeses; Cornish Buttermilk Biscuits – for blue cheeses; and Poppy & Linseed Crackers – for strong flavoured hard and soft cheeses.

* PDO – Protected Designation of Origin, for products that are produced, processed and prepared within a particular geographical area, and with features and characteristics that must be due to that area.

Alongside her partner Mike, Krisi started Bird & Blend Tea Co. in 2013, and now this independent, award-winning company is on a mission to reimagine the Great British brew!

This drinkable version of the nation’s favorite Easter treat is the ultimate vegan and sugar-free alternative, balancing Sri Lankan black tea with cocoa nibs, jasmine blossom, and natural flavourings, for an egg-cellent hit of nostalgia in a mug and the use of cocoa nibs in place of chocolate makes this a much healthier option!

Another absolute seasonal favourite – Hot Cross Bun – is back with a bang. Priced at £5.80 for 50g, it mixes Rooibos, Sri Lankan black tea, cinnamon, hibiscus, apple pieces, rosehip, orange peel, vanilla and cranberry pieces, conjuring the aroma and taste of freshly baked buns!

As for Mother’s Day, Bird & Blend has every woman covered. Offering tailored gifts that are aimed to suit individuals down to a T, you can build your own gift box (from £16.99), by choosing up to four blends, to create the perfect gift for the woman in your life! With flavours including Gingerbread Chai and Morning Kick, there’s something for everyone.

Other options include Loose Leaf Tea Gift Packs (from £4.35), in every flavour from Strawberry Lemonade to Honey Bee Beautiful, as well as Tea Experience Bundles (£25) and the World Atlas Of Tea (£20) – Krisi’s brand new book!

Founders Krisi and Mike commented: “We’re on a mission to make people happy with good brews! Leading the way in tea innovation in the UK, our range blends herbs, flowers, and caramels, for truly unique flavour combinations. For Easter and Mother’s Day, people often feel obliged to buy chocolates or flowers, but why not go for a gift that can be tailored to someone’s exacting tastes? Plus, tea is a fantastic vegan and low-calorie alternative for those with dietary requirements!”

Morse Toad launches ‘Chocolate Memory Box’ – personalised gift of chocolates + framed photo which eliminates packaging waste

Morse Toad is today launching its new, unique and eco-friendly gift, the ‘Chocolate Memory Box’, that combines a moment of chocolate indulgence with a memory that can be framed and hung on the wall.

Customers write a personalised message to the recipient made from high quality Belgian chocolate letters. These chocolate letters are contained in a box with the customer’s photograph printed on the top. Customers can add a note to say who it’s from and choose to include a frame – essentially giving the recipient both a box of delicious chocolate and a beautiful image or memory to hang on their wall.

The entire gift will fit through a typical letterbox.

The product was designed by Dicky Broadhurst, founder of Morse Toad, and was inspired by a desire to reduce unnecessary waste. In the past, the Belgian chocolate letters were contained in a box that had to be disposed of after the chocolates had been eaten. With packaging waste being a major issue in society, Morse Toad wanted to come up with a solution that eliminated the need for the packaging to be thrown away.

The ‘Chocolate Memory Box’ is the solution – after the chocolates have been enjoyed, the photo box can be framed and hung on the wall from the holes in the back of the box.

Customers can include a photo and write message in chocolate, making it the perfect gift for any special occasion:

– For Valentine’s Day; send a photo of you and your partner as well as a chocolate message declaring how much you love them

– For Mother’s Day and Father’s Day; it is perfect as a gift from the kids. Upload a photo of the family, then share a chocolate message telling Mum or Dad how great they are

– For Grandad’s birthday; send a photo of the grandkids complete with a chocolate birthday message.

The ‘Chocolate Memory Box’ can be bought here: www.morsetoad.com/products/chocolate-memory-box

The gift is priced between £12.95 and £19.50. Adding a frame is an additional £4.50.

Morse Toad is an online company that enables their customers to create and send personalised gifts through the letterboxes of their friends and family. Their independent review score is 9.7. Morse Toad offsets their environmental impact by contributing to TreeSisters, a tree planting initiative.

EASTER EGG? WHAT EASTER EGG?

EASTER EGG HUNTS JUST GOT HARDER AS DELIVEROO LAUNCHES INVISIBLE EGG RANGE

· This Easter, Deliveroo launches Invisible Easter Eggs

· Available in chocolate for just £1.95 and a Cointreau flavour for adults priced at £2.15 – with prices reflective of the eggs’ calorie content

March 2020: Deliveroo is making Easter egg hunts a lot harder this year with the launch of a range of invisible eggs.

Ahead of Easter on April 12th, Deliveroo is launching a range of Invisible Easter Eggs, which will be available from the food delivery platform over Easter weekend in two delicious flavours – chocolate and Cointreau. Customers in London and Manchester will all have the chance to get in on the action (if they can spot it).

The translucent eggs are made from premium grade gelatine and purified water in order to make the egg clear. The chocolate and Cointreau flavourings are produced using a centrifuge, this scientific equipment extracts flavour by spinning materials at high speeds to achieve separation.

For those looking to indulge without the guilt, these eggs are the perfect treat – all the joy without the calories or hefty price tag. With no more than 215 calories per egg and at a price that won’t break the bank.

In keeping with Easter traditions, each egg comes packaged with three pots of edible decoration and art supplies, so kids and adults alike can get creative.

Joe Groves, at Deliveroo says: “An Easter egg without the guilt and they’re invisible, so no one can keep track on how many you’ve eaten, roll on Easter! There’s one for the kids and one for the big kids, so everyone can be in on the fun this Easter.

These Invisible Eggs are the much anticipated sequel to last year’s sold out Dragon Eggs, launched to celebrate the final series of Game of Thrones.

The Deliveroo Invisible Eggs are available from Good Friday (April 10th) at £1.95 (chocolate flavour) and £2.15 (Cointreau flavour) in London and Manchester.

Speaking to her inspiration behind the Easter Celebration Chocolate Tart, Katrina said the dessert is the perfect treat for those with a sweet tooth, especially those who love smooth, rich chocolate, and in the spirit of Sunny Queen, she hopes it will help everyone start Easter with a smile.

“All our Sunny Queen Farms eggs wear a smile all year around, so in celebration of the season, I hope my Easter Celebration Chocolate Tart will bring a smile to everyone who gets to taste it. I know when I think of Easter, I think of chocolate and eggs. Creating this recipe, I wanted to make something decadent and celebratory, all the while maintaining the spirit of Easter,” said Katrina.

With families taking advantage of the holiday to indulge and entertain, this recipe can be a great focal point for the lunch or dinner spread.

“The secret to this celebratory tart is in the eggs, and what better way to celebrate Easter than with eggs, both chocolate and Free Range?

“High quality eggs and ingredients make all the difference when it comes to desserts.

“For more than 50 years, Sunny Queen Farms have worked with passion to deliver the highest quality eggs, with our intention to help Aussies start their day egg-cellently, and this tart not only celebrates the magic of Easter, but the magic of eggs,” Katrina said.

3 Easter Jaisalmer Gin Cocktails to Make At Home with some Top Tips

Jaisalmer Indian Gin & Tonic
50ml Jaisalmer Gin
125ml Fever-Tree Indian Tonic Water
Orange Peel
Ice
Fill a Copa glass with ice.
Add Jaisalmer Gin and top up with Fever Tree Indian Tonic Water.
Add an orange peel twist.

Top Tip
Why not save the orange peel each time you boost your Vitamin C levels by eating an orange. Simply freeze orange peel on a tray until it is frozen then transfer to a Tupperware and keep in the freezer.

Jaisalmer Golden Fort
50ml Jaisalmer Gin
15ml Lime Juice
10ml Cinnamon Syrup (see recipe below)
50ml Cloudy Apple Juice
Sliced Green Apple
Nutmeg (optional)
Ice

Pour Jaisalmer Gin over cubed ice.
Add fresh lime juice, cinnamon syrup and cloudy apple juice.
Garnish with an apple fan of 3 slices and add grated nutmeg on top (optional).

Cinnamon Syrup Recipe
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water
4 cinnamon sticks, broken into large pieces

Bring all ingredients to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer for 8-10 minutes until sugar has dissolved, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and let cool. Discard cinnamon sticks, strain into a clean glass jar and cover. Store refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.

Top Tip
If you have some apples that you need to preserve, why not thinly slice them into semi-circles and freeze them to use at a later date as a cocktail garnish. Make sure to place the apple slices so they aren’t touching on a tray to freeze so that they don’t stick together. Once they are frozen, you can put them all together in a Tupperware and store in the freezer.

Jaisalmer Maharaja Mojito
50ml Jaisalmer Gin
20ml Sugar Syrup (see recipe below)
15ml Lime Juice
6 Mint Leaves
50ml Bitter Lemon Mixer
Ice
Fill up glass with ice, pour Jaisalmer Gin.
Clap 6 mint leaves and add to the glass.
Add fresh lime juice, bitter lemon mixer and sugar syrup. Stir gently and garnish with a mint sprig.

Sugar Syrup Recipe
300g caster sugar
150ml water

Dissolve 300g caster sugar in 150ml water over a low heat. Leave to cool and bottle for use in cocktails. Store in the fridge.

Top Tip
If you have an abundance of mint in your kitchen, why not rinse some mint leaves and freeze them in water in ice cube trays for use in future cocktails?

If you wish to treat your loved ones to a different Easter Gift, why not send them a bottle of Jaisalmer Gin?
