Nigella Loves Lick the Spoon

n 2009 Nigella Lawson named Lick the Spoon’s Mint Filigree Easter Egg as her choice on her Nigella Love’s website.

egg_mint_filigree_small“My egg of choice is dark and dense, its richness undercut by a pleasing bitterness and – here’s the thing – covered in a gossamer-thin layer of eau-de-nil coloured, mint-flavoured chocolate which itself is decorated with elegant curlicues of dark chocolate, the whole thing sitting on a chocolate plinth.

It is a thing of great beauty, and looks as if it comes out of the boudoir of one of the great French courtesans”.
