Chocolate eggs are today the symbol of Easter par excellence. How was this tradition born?
For all ancient cultures, the egg had an enormous symbolic value: it was the symbol of life and rebirth. The first to have a chocolate egg made was Louis XIV at the beginning of the eighteenth century.
The tradition of giving eggs is much older: the ancient Persians, Egyptians and Greeks in the period of spring exchanged decorated eggs to celebrate the change of season and the arrival of spring, experienced as a sort of New Year.
And the surprise? A Dutch pastry chef in the mid-nineteenth century devised a mold to allow the creation of empty eggs inside so that a small surprise could be inserted... but there are those who remember that in Turin, in the eighteenth century, there was the tradition of inserting a small gift inside the chocolate eggs.
