Whether dipped, dyed, or painted, this Sunday the beloved Easter egg will make its annual appearance in baskets brimming with plastic grass and Easter egg hunts around the world. And while it's a time-honored tradition to be-dazzle our eggs with a variety of designs and techniques, the edible part of the egg is left in its hard-boiled state (that is, until after the holiday, when it's fare game to eat).
Laid by the queenly Cadbury Bunny herself, the Creme Egg--aka chocolate royalty of Easter--needs no improving. It is complete in its design--rich milk chocolate shell, gooey nougat yolk center. As seasonal treats go, it's perfection. Go ahead and devil your chicken egg, but for the love of all that's good, leave this chocolatey nugg of Easter flavor alone--the Cadbury Bunny knew what she was doing!
Readers, tell us: would you make this, eat this, feed this to your kids? Or do you enjoy the simple pleasures of the unadulterated C.E., freshly peeled from its foil wrapper? Whatever your preference, enjoy the long weekend, and this message from the Cadbury Bunny:
