They look good enough to collect, but better to eat

"No one hand decorates eggs anymore," says Nur Kilic, owner of Brookline's Serenade Chocolatier. Each of their handmade Easter chocolates is unique, varying from egg-size chocolates for nibbling ($2 to $15), to medium-sized bunnies and eggs ($15 to $65). Their signature pieces are enormous eggs ($150) that measure nearly 2 feet high (good thing they're hollow). Playful themes adorn the large eggs, such as "Hey diddle, diddle," decorated with a cow jumping over a moon beside a cat and fiddle. Serenade also sells handsome chocolate ducks ($7) complete with bowtie and sun hat, as well as gourmet cream eggs ($2.) Everythingcomes in milk, dark, or white, chocolate wrapped with pastel bows and ready for the ride to Grandma's. ANNELIESE DOYLE
