The Just Bliss chocolatiers have just reissued their Gin & Tonic Easter eggs! • Glamorous Adelaide
Sound the alarm because South Australian chocolatier Just Bliss has released their Gin and Tonic Easter Eggs!
A collection of artisan chocolate truffles filled with a gin and tonic liqueur coated in a large chocolate shell, these babies are not to be missed!
If you’re still reading this and haven’t jumped out of your seat and straight to Just Bliss, then one, congratulations on your amazing self-control and two, you’ll now learn the intricate details of these Easter treats.
Being a South Australian company, Just Bliss wanted to use a local SA Gin. With the abundance of local distillers in the area, they were spoiled for choice, ultimately choosing 23rd Street distillers based on its flavor profile.
The G&T Truffle Center is made with a chocolate emulsion (they use couverture for its high cocoa butter content and smooth mouthfeel) and cream. For an even creamier mouthfeel, they then whip butter into it. Are you still drooling? Local SA honey is used with lime and lots of touches of gin.
Just Bliss then hand decorates the outer chocolate shell with cocoa butter splatters, which must be done at 32 degrees to ensure the splatter effect sets well and stays vibrant.
The G&T Egg includes 10 G&T truffles nestled in a half 100g Easter egg hand wrapped in foil. Available in milk or dark chocolate and priced at $43
Turns out, it’s not even the first time they’ve played these amazing flavors together. Just Bliss Chocolates also sells milk chocolate and dark chocolate gin and tonic truffles in gift sets – so you can treat your friends all year round!
How considerate of them (and how wickedly indulgent of us!) G&T truffles first appeared when they were inspired by one of Just Bliss Chocolate’s gin-loving employees, Erin. Since Erin joined the team in 2014, she has blessed them with many new chocolate ideas, most centered around the use of Gin! As a parting gift (when Erin finished her nursing degree and moved on to a new career), Just Bliss decided to make her a batch of G&T chocolates (a gesture we thank Erin AND Just Bliss for).
Get in quick because these bad boys are limited edition and with Easter just around the corner, they’re sure to fly.
Just Bliss Chocolates is located at 5/38 Gawler Place (between Rundle Mall and North Terrace)
