Jean-Paul Hévin’s Easter chocolate curiosities

For Easter 2012, Parisian chocolatier Jean-Paul Hévin is presenting some unusual specimens from his cabinet of chocolate curiosities.

For starters, there’s Oeuf curieux, a chocolate egg hatching out of its shell; La Chouette, a “wooden” chocolate owl of sorts; and Oeuf de tortue, a chocolate “turtle egg.”

There’s also Poule drôle de zèbre, a chocolate hen with zebra stripes; Poisson X-ray, a skeletal chocolate fish; Poisson vorace, a voracious fish filled with tiny chocolate life forms; and Tout Pâques, a one-of-a-kind Easter chocolate creation that combines hen, egg and fish!

The goodies, made mostly of dark chocolate, come in different sizes and are garnished with friture and filled chocolate eggs.
