In my book, the best Valentine’s Day gifts start as a cocoa plant, and morph into something sinfully decadent at the hands of master chocolatiers with the wisdom to hire extraordinary packaging designers.
Easter treats, it turns out, are not limited to waxy chocolate bunnies, Cadbury Eggs and Peeps. On the contrary; design and fashion appear to be influencing the category, with some lovely, unexpected results. Thought I’d share a few of my favorite “designer” specialty chocolate eggs for Easter. (Yes, I realize that roughly $200 bucks for a snooty animal print confection is beyond absurd; but I had to throw it in for good measure.)
