Easter Eggs - decorating masterclass with Rococo and ACHICA

ACHICA, the members-only luxury brand discount site, teamed up with Rococo chocolates and invited me to a very special Easter event this week.

Rococo chocolates are celebrating 30 years in business this year.  Their award winning chocolate is sourced from Grenada and all the organic products made from the Rococo House Blend contain beans from the joint venture between Rococo and the Grenada Chocolate Company.  The ethical, fair trade chocolate is then turned into their trademark quirky shapes and products, stunningly packaged and sold through their exclusive and beautiful shops.

Our session began with a lesson on how the bean-to-bar process takes place - with some helpful tasting along the way.

Then we were let loose with smooth chocolate eggs and an array of decorations. Armed with a piping bag and a bowl of warm melted chocolate, the creative process began.

The urge to stick my head and open mouth under this was overwhelming, but will-power prevailed.

I can't think of a lovelier way to spend a morning, and I got some bespoke, hand-decorated and personalised eggs to present on Easter Sunday.

Thank you so much to ACHICA and Rococo.
