“Chocolate Easter eggs are meant to be broken and eaten,” says Chef Ansel. “But most people find it a shame to break them. I wanted to do something that you would find joy and humor in smashing.” Inspired by the popular Angry Birds game, Chef Ansel created 6-inch all-dark chocolate Angry Egg. It’s really two treats in one: Break open the shell with the back of a spoon to unveil three chocolate truffles.
