Last weekend, many of us ambitiously filled our Easter baskets with as many eggs as we could carry, and now we find ourselves with a refrigerator full of naughty things to eat.
Rather than feel guilty about the obligatory chocolate gorging going on, let's celebrate by learning from a master chocolatier at Burie how chocolate Easter eggs are made. The video above shows the step by step process.
This same step-by-step piecing together is used to create all kinds of different chocolate things, from chocolate celebrity heads to the famous Burie chocolate hands and chocolate diamonds ("for and by Antwerp"). Hans Burie even, quite famously, created an 1,800 pound Belgian chocolate car, complete with a life-like interior and completely edible.
Check out some more chocolate creations we saw in the Burie factory, as well as their charming Antwerp boutique, below.
