Philosophical debate in chocolate

A chocolate egg, containing a chicken, containing an egg, etc.

Chocolatiers could make a philosophical statement through their choice of the outermost/innermost item. An open-ended version might hold, at the core, a chocolate question mark.

(Blatant rip from hippo's Russian Doll Easter Egg -- half the buns (but none of the bones) should go to him!)

There could be creationist and evolutionist alternatives. The creationist version could consist of nested chicken and eggs, and the evolutionist version chicken, egg, thecodont, egg, and eventually a gelatinous centre representing an early tetrapod's or crossopterygian egg, with a larval form, and so on.

Then again, there could be a Churchill version with an enigmatic outside egg, maybe covered in an almost indecipherable cipher, enclosing an egg with a scene from Miss Marple on it, containing a piece of paper with "Why is a raven like a writing desk?" written on it. The eggs are made of specially hardened chocolate and can be unlocked only with a key whose lock bit is in the shape of the words "national interest" written in Russian.

I love the evolutionist version! You could drill all the way down to mytochondria and carbon-hydrogen compounds. Maybe some kind of mild explosive can go off when you reach the Big Bang.

Yes, well the Churchill version is just silly.
Mmm...quark-gluon plasma fresh!
