Italian Chocolate Easter Eggs

From colorful processions to great feasts, there are many ways that Italians celebrate Easter. One of the more delicious traditions – and a favorite of ours – is uova di Pasqua al cioccolato: chocolate Easter eggs!

Italians take all things chocolate very seriously – and Easter eggs are no exception! Even in the smallest village, every grocery store, shop window, and market stall will boast an abundant display of these treats in the days leading up to Easter Sunday. Each year, chocolatiers outdo themselves with increasingly elaborate edible designs. Inside, the chocolate eggs may be hollow, contain creamy fillings, or even feature a tiny surprise.
