Most Expensive Non-Jeweled Chocolate Egg Created By William Curley Auctioned For $10,000

The grand and historic city of London just loves getting its name printed in the Guinness Book of World Records.

So far, its broken the world records for longest curtsey relay and longest marathon hug, and now its set to break the record for the largest Easter egg hunt in the world.

London & Partners revealed that London-based chocolatier William Curley has created the most expensive non-jeweled chocolate egg, which auctioned for a record-breaking $10,000 for lucky buyer technology investor Cyrus Vandrevala.

A team of seven expertly skilled chocolatiers worked for three days with Amadei chocolate from the Chuao region of Venezuela to create the large ornamental egg. Experts consider the Amadei chocolate to be the best and most luxurious in the world.

Muscovado caramel, Japanese black vinegar, rosemary and olive oil, toasted sesame and juniper berry and cassis, which are all Curley favorites, were stuffed in the egg. It was accented with edible gold that was hidden at Fortnum and Mason.

The creation named Golden Speckled Egg was part of the Fabergé Big Egg Hunt, and it was auctioned to raise money for the charities Action for Children and Elephant Family. More than 200 eggs were created for the event by leading artists, designers, architects and jewelers and hidden all over London.
