New recipe alert! Let’s talk about all things Eton Mess. Nothing screams summertime bliss more than this fruity delight. Now we know what you are thinking, this is a national favourite of our lovely English neighbours, so what are us Welshies doing talking about this?
Well, here at Wickedly Welsh we wanted to put our own spin on this traditional English classic!
Tasking our master chocolatiers with the challenge of turning something more English than tea, into something more Welsh than Nessa, the Eaton Mess war was underway! After months of toing and froing with different flavour combinations and endless taste tests (maybe a few more than was necessary, it just tasted so good) we are finally ready to unveil our Welsh take on the classic Eton Mess, the Wickedly Welsh Eton Mess White Chocolate Bar! Dare we say it but this Eton Mess chocolate bar may even be comparable in beauty to the flag of our great Welsh nation …. Nah, kidding! it’s good, but not THAT good :)
The iconic trio of strawberries, cream and meringue coupled with our moreish white chocolate, is a flavour sensation too good to not indulge in. The beautiful dessert we’ve based this new recipe on dates back to the 19th Century and is thought to have originated from Eton College. Legend has it that this firm English favourite was created when an overexcited dog knocked over a meringue dessert at a picnic, and so the Eton Mess was born, becoming a classic go do dessert for Brits ever since.
Wanting to go one better than our English chocolatier rivals, we’ve incorporated these delightful flavours into our finest creamy white chocolate. Starting with the strawberries, we lovingly stirred them into our famous white chocolate, using just a hint of vanilla and cream to bring out their fresh, juicy flavour. Next, we scattered sweet crunchy meringue with freeze dried strawberries on top of the milk chocolate bar. The tangy strawberries and moreish meringue go perfectly with the silky smooth milk chocolate - the perfect after dinner treat (indulge with a glass of bubbly if you are feeling extra bougie). Of course we continue to be proud to say we use only fresh, natural and locally sourced ingredients (our free trade Ghanaian cocoa beans excluded of course) which is why all of our chocolate bars taste so good.
We know this brand new Wickedly Welsh Eton Mess White Chocolate Bar is one you’ll be desperate to try, so get in quick to get your chocolate fix before this timeless classic is all gone!
