This is a great recipe that can make 4 different kinds of eggs if you want...all yummy. I always get heaps of compliments when I make these.
Absolutely delicious! I was a little hesitant about making my own eggs as I didn't know if they would be too sickly but this is a great recipe. They turn out like little gourmet truffles from a chocolatier. All my friends were very impressed. They are a little fiddly to make but well worth it for a thoughtful home made gift or treat for your family. I highly recommend trying them. Thanks for sharing this recipe JAMVS! - 29 Mar 2010
Altered ingredient amounts. Peppermint essence also works a treat for another flavour. - 29 Mar 2010
This was an incredible recipe! I only separated it into thirds because I'm not a big chocolate (center) fan and from what others' reviews on it were. And, instead of forming them into egg shapes, I cheated and bought a silicone cupcake pan and just coated the insides with chocolate up the rim. Then I set them in the freezer until hardened (about 5 minutes), filled up the molds with the filling about 7/8 full and sealed them in with melted chocolate. I gave them to some family and neighbors and they thought they were store bought! PERFECT!!! Next time I'll get some white chocolate and color it with Easter colors and hand paint the designs on them. I did one batch with 1 1/2 tsp. of peppermint extract and it tasted just like a peppermint patty, only better! The peanut butter ones were the favorite of everyone (because my family is peanut butter lovers. I did have a problem with the first batch of peanut butter being a little to dry, so the next batch I just added a Tablespoon at a time of milk and it made them perfect! And the third batch I did with maraschino cherries chopped up and a little cherry extract. Those were the favorites of everyone that I had to stash some for myself and the husband! They were superb! Thank you kindly for such a fantastic recipe! My kids have LOVED helping me make these, not to mention they gobble them down before they even hit the fridge! - 31 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
