How Parc does Easter: $20, hand-painted, French milk chocolate eggs

You could spend your Easter candy budget on dozens of Marshmallow Peeps or a basket full of Cadbury Creme Eggs. Or you could divert that money into one premium chocolate statement piece.

Behold: Parc's hand-painted milk chocolate Easter egg, which stands six inches tall and is filled with 10 more milk chocolates, shaped variously like fish, seashells, and snails. It makes an impressive centerpiece or Easter basket stuffer and is easily sliced or cracked for sharing.

Chocolate Easter egg, $20 at Parc, 227 S. 18th St. Call 215-545-2262 to order by April 10, and pick up on April 14 or 16.
