Eggstravagant Easter eggs

As Easter rolls around this year, some chocolatiers have gone above and beyond to turn simple chocolate eggs into gourmet – and artistic – masterpieces. But have they gone too far?

Here are some of the best eggs from around the world that’ll make you hungry, but could you bear to eat them?

WARNING: These pictures might make your own eggs look a little underwhelming by comparison.


This last pic is of the ‘Betty’ egg, a five and a half kilo monster made in Yorkshire, costing around AUD $400 and, if eaten in one sitting, may contain enough theobromine to kill you.

Which is your favourite? Could you bring yourself to eat them?
