We've never been able to resist chocolate, whether it's in the form of bars or a rich, steaming cup of cocoa. It's probably a given that Easter — with its myriad of animal-shaped chocolate confections — is one of our favorite holidays to indulge our sweet tooth.

Chocolate artists are taking the humble Easter egg to new heights. And, to say that some of these chocolate eggs are amazing would be a huge understatement. With ornate three-dimensional designs and whimsical packaging, some of these wouldn't seem out of place in a museum's Fabergé gallery. Ahead, seven truly inspired designs that will make typical dyed Easter eggs look like child's play.

This isn't exactly an egg confection. But, maybe these chocolate covered chicks did come before their eggs.
