I don't see anything excessive about this at all. Instead, I see a chocolate fountain I'd like to install at my house. I now crave a giant chocolate Easter egg I could spend 40 days and 40 nights eating. And I want every meal I eat to be put together by these joy givers who artfully assemble this humungous giant-sized snack.
We start with [12 pounds] of the finest Swiss Grand Cru chocolate, made from noble grade Trinitario and Criollo cocoa beans, ethically sourced from Venezuela. Our chocolatiers fill each half of the egg with three layers of chocolate for an extra-thick shell, stippling inside the mould to ensure a glossy finish. Placed together, the two halves are sealed by hand with our classic chocolate shell piping.
