What Chocolate Candy Starts With the Letter 'E'?

It can be hard to find candy that starts with the letter "E." English toffee is an easy one, which is a rich, buttery candy made of almonds, butter, sugar, and corn syrup, and it is often eaten with chocolate. Other truffles include eggnog truffles and exploding truffles, which are pop rocks candy combined with chocolate ganache in a truffle.

Chocolate Easter eggs first appeared in the early 19th century in Europe. Germany and France took the lead to create a new artistic confectionery to celebrate Easter. These chocolate candies come in great varieties, from solid chocolate and creme-filled to hollow eggs with more sweet surprises inside. 

What Non-Chocolate Candy Starts With the Letter 'E'?

For the non-chocolate lovers, the Everlasting Gobbstoppers, a candy from Roald Dahl's 1964 children's novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, is always a winner. According to Willy Wonka himself, this sweet treat is, "for children with very little pocket money," with its changing colors and flavors and never seeming to disappear.

Elvis fudge is a treat that features the King of Rock and Roll's favorite flavor combination: peanut butter and banana. It consists of a layer of peanut butter fudge with a layer of banana and white chocolate fudge on top.

Another non-chocolate treat that starts with "E" is Edinburgh rock or Edinburgh Castle rock. This candy is a traditional Scottich confection, which consists of sugar, water, cream of tartar, colorings and flavorings. Generally, it is found in the form of stick, and its texture is soft and crumbly.

What Desserts Start with the Letter "E"?

Finding desserts that start with the letter "E" is less of a challenge. There are many sweet treats from the éclair, dating back to the nineteenth century, to a little more modern dessert, the Egg Tart.

The French éclair is typically represented with a delicate pastry outside, filled with a yellow pudding, and glazed with chocolate on top. However, this dessert is a fan-favorite with flavors ranging from mint chocolate, banana split and toffee eclairs, to name a few.

The Egg Tart has outer pastry crust filled with egg custard, commonly found in Hong Kong, China, Taiwan and other Asian countries.

Perfect for the holiday season, eggnog fudge is a winner and easy to make. Combine eggnog, butter, cream and sugar, and bring to a boil in a saucepan. Stir occasionally, reduce the heat until you can form a soft ball and stir in white chocolate chips.
