Easter eggs are so easy to make yourself, the varieties are endless and all you need is some good quality chocolate, some moulds and lots of patience.
Most hospitality warehouses have a good variety of moulds at this time of year; you might even find them at the supermarket. Once you get started it’s lots of fun and get the kids involved too, they will think it’s fantastic with loads of finger lickin’ along the way!
I have chosen to fill the eggs with M&Ms, but you could use anything really, as long as it keeps well along with the chocolate. I’m sure if you have a few of these rolling around in the boat over the Easter break you will be everyone’s best friend, tight lines over the break and happy Easter to all!
Good quality chocolate
Place your double boiler on the stove and in a clean dry bowl place the chocolate over the top to melt.
Spray your mould with oil and tip your first layer of chocolate in, tipping out the excess chocolate, then place in the fridge to set. I repeat this another two times to give your egg three layers in the mould.
Remove the egg from the moulds, then place a tray over the double boiler to heat through, place the egg rim side down on the tray to melt an even edge.
Then fill it with the M&Ms, now do the other half and stick the eggs together and smooth off excess chocolate with your fingers. I cut a piece of inside paper towel cardboard roll, sit the egg on top of it and wrap in cellophane, tie with ribbon and your done.
It’s that easy!
