AN eggs-tra special Easter treat is being offered by Lynemouth chocolate makers with five eggs in one.

The Russian doll-based idea has been taken up by the community-based Kenspeckle company, which makes a range of fudges and chocolates to raise funds for Lynemouth Resource Centre.

The largest chocolate egg is ostrich-sized, measuring 22.5cm, and it contains four others, down to a quail-sized 3cm egg.

There is a range of other treats available, including six eggs in a selection of milk, white and dark chocolate, and chocolate chicks with their own clutch of eggs in a chocolate nest.

Trust In The North Manager Andrew Gooding, who is responsible for the venture, said: “Our caramel shell egg is a stuffed crust equivalent for the world of fine chocolate.

“The milk chocolate egg has a rich honey and lavender caramel embedded within the shell, or we have a dark chocolate egg with a classic orange-infused caramel within the shell. Then we have teamed up the white chocolate with a super smooth strawberry and balsamic caramel.”

Kenspeckle, which takes its name from the Northumbrian word for easily recognised, was set up three years ago at the centre to provide local training and employment, as well as bring in funds.

Since then it has gone from strength to strength, selling its produce at local markets and online at www.kenspeckle.co.uk
