How to keep chocolate from melting in your hand?

I have made chocolate covered raisins with no problem, setting up at room temperature, and remaining easy to handle with no melt problem.

I have now made chocolate covered Easter eggs which I sliced after they were set and kept them in the refrigerator.

The minute you take a slice and begin to eat it the chocolate melts all over your fingers.

What is the problem? What am I doing wrong with the eggs that was no problem with the raisins?
