Inkymole aka Sarah J Coleman is behind lots of delicious work – from beautiful book covers, such as a gorgeous edition of To Kill A Mockingbird, to advertising campaigns for Diet Coke. But none of her designs are quite as tasty as these half-kilo, totally solid easter eggs.
“Our solid chocolate eggs were created to avoid that crushing disappointment as you opened your Easter Egg only to find it was just a sad hollow, shell,” says the Inkymole website in a compassionate statement that surely goes straight to all of our egg-y, chocolate-y hearts.
Now I’ve managed to stop salivating long enough to actually write, I can tell you that Sarah’s delectable designs were created with Leicester-based award-winning handmade chocolate brand Cocoa Amore, who have melted their expertise into 6 flavours: dark, white, milk, praline, salted and peanut butter.
Inkymole claims one egg contains 30,000,000 calories, which we’ve calculated is 53,285 big macs and 15,000 normal-calorie-intake days’ worth of lies.
Update: Unfortunately, this year all the eggs have sold out – but you can join Inkymole’s mailing list to be first in line for next year’s batch, which promises to be bigger (I would say 'and better' but that seems impossible).
