Original chocolate easter eggs

If there is something I love more than being on holidays during the Holy Week is to walk around Barcelona street’s and see the “ easter monas” at the bakery’s windows.

Every year they get better and they adapt to the most popular themes amongst kids: this year for example it’s full of Sponge Bob’s “monas”, Monster High’s and Smurf’s.

Since I’m too old to recieve “monas” anymore (altought I clearly remember a snorkel mona that I recieved when I was a Kid) I now have begun to look at chocolate easter eggs.

There are many original chocolate eggs, even as good as “monas”; and some of them are almost pieces of art. Here you have a selection of the ones I’ve liked the most.

Let’s start with a “cat-egg”: this funny fortune cat from Xocoa, which they say is useful to get the crisis away from us.I wish it was true…

Even if it’s hard to get, this Mr. Potato from Harvey Nichols seems to me a brilliant idea.

From a Valencia Bakery called Llopis, there is this funny series of Wizard of Oz eggs.

More “fashionable” ones are thes from Pancracio, and the Godiva ones for trendsetters, popular, and brainiacs…

For those who care more about a good chocolate, you must visit Cacao Sampaka, with its spectacular super egg that weights 250kg (of course you also have a small replica of it). And these from Chocolat Factory also look good.

What would an egg be without a chicken and its little chicken? At Forn de Sant Jaume (rambla catalunya 50) you can find these cute rubber-like ducks.

At Mary’s Market, the gourmet shop at bulevard rosa, they have this strange flat eggs from Bcn cookies. They are made of chocolate with rice and at the center they have a vanilla cookie…yummy!

And finally a great idea to do with the kids: the pinta mona set from xocoa; which includes a big chocolate egg, an apron, a chef’s hat, and some fondant coloured chocolates to paint and decorate the egg as you like.

Another option are the  egg-shaped “kukis”with sugar markers.

After all the “eggpedition” I have bought the sweetest easter egg on earth…this xocoa egg with candies! Sugar rocks!!
