Most Brain-Like Chocolate Easter Egg Confection
When I was little, I was always disappointed by hollow chocolate Easter eggs or bunnies. Hell, I'm still disappointed in them. I don't care if I'm eating a piece of chocolate molded into a fun shape if it's mostly air.
But when we got this Rocky Road Egg from See's Candies, a milk chocolate egg filled with honey marshmallows and walnuts, I was kind of scared. It was big. And heavy (9.5 ounces).
I felt a surge of power flow through me as I held that 1200-calorie bomb of chocolate-mashmallow-nut goodness in my palm. And then I cut it open. And it looked like this.
It's a glob of marshmallows and walnuts bound together by chocolate. The pattern of the bisected egg kind of reminded me of brain folds. To add to the brain-like comparison, when I separated the halves, the marshmallow came apart in a sticky, unclean manner. Just like human meat!...I assume. I've never cut a brain in half before.
it tastes like what it looks like: very sweet, sticky, and a bit nutty. But mostly sweet, as it's mostly sugar. Like a dense Asian mooncake, this is best eaten in thin slices.
