Plain Chocolate Easter Eggs

    30 minutes

    You don't have to be crazy to make your own Easter Eggs - but it helps! But seriously, its a fun thing to do with kids and really not that hard. Try just one first and you'll work out how thick to make the "shells". You can get moulds from craft shops like Spotlight. You can use icing to join the halves and add smarties to each egg before you join them.

    Serves: 10 

    • 250g good quality dark or milk chocolate

    Preparation:30min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Melt chocolate in a heatproof bowl over simmering water.
    2. Paint a thin layer of chocolate inside the egg moulds, making sure it meets the edges of the mould. Chill for 5 minutes or until the chocolate is firm. Spread another even layer of chocolate over the first layer. Chill for another 5 minutes or until firm.
    3. Gently ease the mould away from the chocolate. Join the chocolate halves together with a little melted chocolate.
    4. Mix together the icing sugar and egg whites. Add food colouring as desired. Decorate the eggs however you want using e.g with patterns or words.

    I made these with my neices so they could give it to their mum for Easter - they looked like the second picture on here, then we decorated them with yellow icing and silver balls. Turned out great! Nice & simple, thanks.  -  16 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
