So real you could boil them

A few years back a charming lady came into the King’s Road shop, picked up a box of quail eggs and asked “are these the ones you boil?”. I just about managed to keep my composure while explaining that they are in fact chocolate praline, with a thin crunchy sugar shell and personally I would just pop straight into my mouth. More recently a friend told me that she had served them at her daughter’s Christening party, and here is the photo:
