Lindt Chocolate Creams and a giveaway

I love Lindt chocolates especially their dark chocolate truffles. I was really excited when I was asked if I wanted to review a copy of Lindt Gold Bunny recipe book. Lindt's Maitres Chocolatiers have compiled some of their best recipes in this really cute and fun book. My favourite part is that it is shaped just like the famous Lindt gold bunny and comes complete with a bell! The book is really beautifully presented with 26 recipes in total. Each recipe is really easy to follow and accompanied by a beautiful colour photograph which is a must for every recipe book. 

 How cute is the book? The bell works too :) 

 Some sample pages

  • Crispy chocolate eggs
  • Chocolate and pecan barquettes
  • Greedy chocolate mice
  • Chocolate mini choux buns
  • Chocolate brioche toasts

  • Chocolate fondue with French toast fingers
  • Home-made hot chocolate

  • Coconue-chocolate cigars
  • Chocolate tiramisu
  • Chocolate eggs with meringue bursts
  • Florentines
  • Muffins with chocolate cream filling
  • Chocolate creams
  • Panna cotta with praline cream

I decided to make the chocolate creams recipe as I liked the sound of it and it was the accompanying photograph on the contents page. It was really easy to make and tasted really chocolatey. I brought it to a friend's house to serve as dessert and it was very well received. It's not overly sweet due to the dark chocolate and yoghurt and feels like a healthier version of chocolate mousse as it contains natural yoghurt.
