Make Your Own Chocolate Easter Eggs


This Easter, try making your own eggs with this easy step by step guide from Taste. Pick up a mould (available from craft stores, such as Spotlight), melt your choice of chocolate, then follow these steps.

Step 1: Brush an Easter egg mould with vegetable oil to lightly grease. Spoon the melted chocolate into the prepared mould (about 1 1/2 tablespoons each side for a large mould and 2 teaspoons each side for a medium mould). Working quickly, use the back of a teaspoon to spread the chocolate evenly over the inside of both sides of the mould.

Step 2: Close the mould so the edges join. Use clips to secure. Shake to coat on both sides. Set aside for 5 minutes. Turn over and set aside until almost set (this stops the chocolate setting on one side only.)

Step 3: Place in fridge for 5-10 minutes to chill (this makes it easier to remove the egg from the mould). Remove the clips. Gently press the top and bottom of the mould, one side at a time, to release the egg.

  1. Cool recipe, I might have to give this a go for the kids (alongside the standard Easter chocolate that they expect!)
