According to what i learn back there in my school: the egg symbolizing Jesus "fake death" state, where there is a life inside the egg even though it's look like an inanimate object.
Although this was a misconception, since an egg is not a chicken's fetus, but it's.. ...uh, egg cell? Or maybe period is a better word?
And for the chocolate, it's simply because it's a celebration.

As a Jew, I was convinced Cadbury eggs were the best part of Christianity. Now that I'm a bit older, I've lost the knack for consuming excessive amounts of sugar that the twelve-year-old me had. But I still like those eggs every now and then.
Some people are proof that G-d exists; evolution would have prevented them.
