This beautifully shot and edited video from Betty's, a chocolate company based in the UK, shows how their very large Imperial Easter Eggs are made. The handmade chocolates look like edible works of art.
Did you know that our handmade Imperial Easter Eggs continue a tradition stretching back nearly a century to the birth of Bettys? Our founder, Frederick Belmont, created lavish Easter eggs which were ornately embellished with hand-piped icing designs.
We start with 5.4kg of the finest Swiss Grand Cru chocolate, made from noble grade Trinitario and Criollo cocoa beans, ethically sourced from Venezuela. Our chocolatiers fill each half of the egg with three layers of chocolate for an extra-thick shell, stippling inside the mould to ensure a glossy finish. Placed together, the two halves are sealed by hand wi
th our classic chocolate shell piping.
Although the 50cm high Imperial Easter Egg is one-of-a-kind, all our Easter eggs are made at our Craft Bakery in Harrogate and are hand-finished using artisan skills that have been passed down from chocolatier to chocolatier since 1919.
Just what we needed, said exactly no one.
