DESCRIPTION OF CREATION: An Easter egg with seven layers of differently shaded chocolate. These include Valrhona’s four colors (dark, milk, Dulcey and white) as well as three colored layers to complete our chocolate rainbow. Egg-shaped cut-outs uncover every separate layer. The name Egstrate is a combination “Egg” and “strata”, which means geological layer.
