If you think chocolate Easter eggs from your local supermarket are pricey, prepare to be shocked.

Godiva, the luxury Belgian chocolatier, has revealed an Easter egg created especially for the occasion and it costs £10,000.

Or, you know, the equivalent of a house deposit outside of London, a small wedding or a snazzy holiday.

The handcrafted 65kg Atelier egg is made from the brands dark chocolate and was created by Godivas development chef, Cherish Finden.

It was unveiled at the Godiva shop in St Pancras International station, and took Cherish and three of her assistant chefs 200 hours to make.

The inspiration for the magnificent art piece (or treat?) was spring blooms; it has been adorned by hand with passion flowers, fuchsia petals and hearts.

And of course, features the signature G for Godiva at the top.

This is my second Atelier egg with Godiva, and this year we wanted to go even bigger and more extravagant, said Cherish.

The spring Atelier egg captures the artistic and premium craftsmanship of the brand, whilst celebrating the colour and energy of the season. Godiva is famed for its intricate artistry, and I think that comes across from the level of detail included in the design.

I want to thank my team – Quentin Drouet, Jisun Shin and Eu Jing Hooi – for all of their hard work.
