Legend has it that a brightly colored nougat bird lays nougat eggs around Australia every Easter and I was lucky enough to find one in an old hollow gum tree. What's a nougat bird, I hear you ask? Well, I haven't seen one but its egg tasted mighty fine.
The classic nougat egg
Well, actually mum gave one of these curious things to me for Easter and I had to share it with the kids. The outside of the Darrell Lea's famous Nougat Egg was covered in sweet and delicious milk chocolate, while the inside was filled with fluffy nougat with chewy desiccated coconut mixed in. The Australian chocolate company, Darrel Lea have been producing chocolate since 1927, so they know a thing or two about making chocolate. The Milk Chocolate Nougat Egg comes in stylish pink or blue packaging which makes it a perfect gift to offer someone you love.
Inside a nougat egg
I highly recommend Darrell Lea's nougat egg as a special Easter treat, and if you look very carefully, you may just spot the elusive Nougat Bird laying one in your backyard someday soon.
