Move over gingerbread houses, there’s a new edible house on the market. Cadbury has launched a build-your-own chocolate cottage complete with Mini Eggs just in time for Easter.
The chocolate giant really is spoiling us this year, with the return of the Orange Twirl and the new Mini Eggs chocolate bar that’s landing on supermarket shelves. But now we can combine our favourite Cadbury treats in one edible house, all in the name of Easter.
The building kit includes two 200g Dairy Milk bars, two 95g Dairy Milk bars, and two 100g Dairy Milk Spring bars. There are also two 14.5g portions of white buttons and Mini Eggs for decoration (or if you’re like us, snacks during the construction process).
The Dairy Milk Spring bars are supposed to be used for the roof and feature mini white chocolate bunnies to add that extra Easter touch.
Unfortunately, you won’t find the cottage kit in your supermarket, but it can be bought from Cadbury Gifts Direct for £16.
All being well, by the time the Easter holidays roll around we might be able to socialise with a limited number of people outdoors, but while we still might not be able to mix with our family and friends to celebrate Easter, putting this chocolate house together makes a great lockdown activity.
Chocolate lovers are pretty excited about the new product, although some people weren’t sure how they’d be able to resist eating the treats before getting to the building part.
One person on Facebook wrote: ‘The Easter bunny needs to bring me this house to go with my festive house making… the only problem is that I would be eating it as I’m making it.’
Another said: ‘Don’t think this would end up a cottage, it will all be in my belly before building it.’ Yep, we have to agree on that one.
