Easter: Eggs For Adults Only

Why should kids get all the good Easter treats? These chocolate eggs are much too precious to waste in their wicker baskets. The Harvey Nichols Limited Edition, available only at stores in Britain and Ireland, is an 80cm-tall solid milk-chocolate egg inside a Valrhona dark-chocolate shell, flecked with gold-leaf designs (five available at $1,120 each; www.harveynichols.com for stores).

Award-winning London chocolatier Paul A. Young has won a cult following for his made-to-order Easter eggs. Customers can choose from 20 different types of chocolate for the base, paired with unusual truffle fillings, including coconut and litchi or port and Stilton, and decorated with custom design elements—say, violins for a music lover. Orders take two weeks (from $200; paulayoung.co.uk).

The dark-chocolate Large Egg Treasure by La Maison du Chocolat is covered with colorful pastel polka dots and carved with spy holes to reveal a solid milk-chocolate center. It must be purchased in the boutiques; it's too fragile to ship ($145; lamaison duchocolat.co.uk for locations).

Giorgio Armani recently unveiled its monogrammed Dolci Easter eggs, available only in stores in dark, milk or white (price not available; giorgio armani.com for locations). L'Artisan du Chocolat makes a 26kg milk-chocolate egg, decorated with 100 edible sugar "diamonds" ($1,012; www.selfridges.com). Just ask the Easter Bunny.
