See below some of the best Easter Eggs for 2022:
Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat
Pastry Chef Florent Margaillan of Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Hotel has unveiled his 2022 Easter creation: an egg inspired by the hotel’s lush gardens. The egg is crafted in the shape of dried pine bark, a nod to the Aleppo pines that are dotted around the hotel gardens. This delectable creation is made entirely of chocolate, using 69 per cent cocoa specially created for Florent. Offering the perfect balance between sweetness and bitterness, this special chocolate from Ghana and Ecuador is used in the desserts served in the hotel’s three restaurants, Le Cap*, La Véranda and Club Dauphin. It has a sweet, chocolatey flavour, with tones of vanilla giving a touch of roundness and lending a fine and silky texture on the palate. Created as a gourmet chocolate bar, the bark is sprinkled with chocolate delights and filled with hazelnut praline. At the base is a green mousse designed to resemble the gardens’ lush vegetation. Creating the mousse proved to be a real technical challenge as Florent had to extract the CO2 from the chocolate and pistachio to lend it its moss-like texture.
Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris
To celebrate Easter, Pastry Chef Michael Bartocetti of Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris has crafted a decadent egg featuring harmonious, elegant lines. Perfect for sharing with family and friends, this delectable, sweet treat is a slice of pure indulgence. Its airy, curvaceous design is a nod to the art of piping, a delicate embellishing method requiring precise technical skill. Coated with 70 per cent dark chocolate from Papua New Guinea, the Signature Egg will tantalise the taste buds of chocolate lovers, with subtle smoky aromas and intense, all-engulfing notes that provide a veritable journey for the senses. The chocolate shape is delicately adorned with a delicious puffed caramel corn praline that adds a decadent, satisfying crunch. The chef’s exquisite creation seeks to tap into fond childhood memories, with a generous, cheeky layer of salted butter caramel cocooned at its centre. Irresistibly smooth and firm to the palate, it tantalises the tastebuds and creates an explosion of flavours in the mouth.
The Ritz London
In celebration of Easter 2022, Fabergé and The Ritz London are once again renewing their unique relationship with a collaboration that both ignites the senses and captures the spirit of craftsmanship. Head Pastry Chef Lewis Wilson has created a visually spectacular hand-crafted chocolate Fabergé egg dessert inspired by the Essence Rose Gold Ruby Heart Surprise Locket from Fabergé’s current collection, which will be exclusively available within a four-course Fabergé menu in the Michelin-starred Ritz Restaurant from Monday 11th April until Monday 18th April 2022. The hand-crafted chocolate Fabergé egg dessert consists of an intricate dark chocolate spherical cage, which opens up (closely mirroring the Fabergé egg) to reveal a gold, dark chocolate egg within, filled with a hazelnut and chocolate mousse centre. The egg sits delicately on a ruby red tuille and is decorated with edible ruby red gemstones. The dessert is served with vanilla ice cream to complement.
Cheval Blanc Hotel
Pastry Chef Maxime Frédéric and his teams have come up with a delicious series of chocolate creations to celebrate Easter 2022. First of all, there is his emblematic Easter egg: pure chocolate, monumental in scale and recalling a ‘Fabergé’ egg, it incorporates a merry-go-round animated by an all-chocolate mechanism that sends a white horse into dance. This 40 cm tall creation uses details of the iconic Samaritaine building’s architecture, with the designs rounded and lengthened to ornament the chocolate shell. A clever blend of three different cocoas, this composition combines Peruvian milk chocolate for biscuity and slightly spicy notes, dark chocolate from Madagascar for acidity, and a touch of white chocolate for the milky side. Playful and flavourful, the Carrousel Egg fascinates with its animated team of horses and the lone Cheval Blanc, or white horse, twirling on a cocoa shell filled with crunchy hazelnuts. This creation is meant to be seen with the eyes of a child, like those of the young guests of the Carrousel, the kid’s club of Cheval Blanc Paris, and it’s meant to be savoured with delicate taste buds to detect every musical nuance of the chocolate varieties arranged with dexterity and sophistication by the master pastry che
Then, in a tribute to Maxime Frédéric’s Norman roots, a series of smaller eggs take the form of the colourful ones from the family farm, laid by its ancient line of chickens with fanciful plumage. Six kinds of eggs filled with six tasty and creamy pralines: pistachio, buckwheat vanilla, coconut, peanut, hazelnut and cocoa. The chocolate shell is structured and reassuring, smooth and soft. Step by step, as the egg is savoured, the creaminess of the vanilla or pistachio is revealed in the heart of the praline. A hint of the finest Guérande sea salt prolongs the sweet flavour, and an unctuous caramel afforded to the praline brings flexibility, wholeness and finesse to the chocolate. Joyful and tempting, this must-have collection will bring a touch of poetic magic to every egg hunt this year
Who hasn’t daydreamed of suddenly stepping into Wonderland during an Easter egg hunt? François Perret of Ritz Paris has just sent our taste buds a ticket! He trades in his signature smooth Madeleine for a crunchy chocolate shell surrounding an Easter treasure: homemade chocolates.

Le Royal Monceau
This year, Le Royal Monceau’s talented Head Pastry Chef Quentin Lechat draws inspiration from the Moai statue of Easter Island and creates one of the most amazing chocolate sweets for Easter 2022. The dessert is made of dark chocolate, pistachio praline, milk chocolate and caramelized pistachios.
Le Bristol Paris
For Easter 2022, Le Bristol Paris’ Head Chocolatier, Johan Giachetti, has crafted a dreamy chocolate egg for a delicate treat to savour this spring. The artisan of chocolate was inspired by the arrival of Socrate, Le Bristol’s permanent resident, to create his chocolate Easter egg. Open to one side, the egg is crafted from 70% dark Venezuelan chocolate and lined in caramelized white chocolate. One peek inside reveals the beautiful Birman cat made of milk chocolate with hazelnut and toasted brown rice, napping upon a silky red cushion made from white chocolate.

To celebrate Easter 2022, The Woodward‘s talented Head Pastry Chef, Titouan Claudet, has drawn inspiration from La Maison Guerlain’s glamorous eau de toilette. Original and delectable, the chef’s chocolate egg creation takes on the elegant shape of the house’s Aqua Allegoria bottle. Inspired by the famous Vendôme column in Paris with its chiselled honeycomb dome topped by a metallic gold sphere, the bottle is itself a modern version of the iconic Guerlain bee bottle designed in 1853. The Pastry Chef’s refined skills are the perfect echo to the creative spirit of La Maison Guerlain, whose joyful eau de toilette collection pays tribute to nature and its beautiful raw materials for moments of true pleasure. Titouan Claudet has created a delicate work of art made of grand cru chocolate from wild Criollo cacao beans sourced in Beni, Bolivia. Standing on a square pedestal of chocolate with fleur de sel, the egg is filled with caramelised hazelnuts and salted butter caramel, revealing infinitely decadent flavours in the spirit of chocolate mendiants
