Sous Chef introduces Lakrids’ liquorice Easter eggs
UK online shop Sous Chef has introduced a pair of liquorice eggs to its Easter offerings this year.
The unusual but chic Easter eggs are produced by Danish brand Lakrids by Bülow and come in two flavours:
Each of these black eggs holds a centre of soft, sweet liquorice wrapped in smooth dulce caramelised chocolate. The eggs are held in a thin, crispy shell which is finished with Maldon sea salt flakes and a dusting of raw liquorice powder, decorared with silver speckles for an elegant final touch.
Inside this egg are individual balls of Lakrids liquorice which has been slow-cooked, giving it a firmer texture and a rich, almost toffee-like flavour.
The liquorice is wrapped in a layer of white chocolate flavoured with vanilla and mango powder. The tropical notes in these eggs pair well with the dark liquorice, with a flavour combination reminiscent of a rum and mango cocktail.
