Homemade Chocolate Easter Eggs


Happy Easter Everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying the long bank holiday weekend. We had a lovely picnic out yesterday and tucked into our Easter eggs today. I decided to make my own Easter eggs this year with a mould that I bought from Lakeland. It's really easy to make and you can customise your own eggs. I made a selection of dark, milk and white mini eggs and a milk chocolate shell. I packed it in a gift bag tied with my special ribbon that says "handmade with love". J had a special egg that was half dark and half milk as requested. It looked good and tasted very chocolatey and he was most impressed with the little eggs inside!

Happy Easter Everyone!

 there are 4 large moulds and 3 mini moulds in the pack. Melt the chocolate and fill the moulds

 making the mini eggs 

 brush a thin layer or chocolate in the large mould and allow to set in the fridge. Repeat the process at least 4 times otherwise it will be too fragile



 ready to assemble - place the small eggs inside the large one and brush a bit of melted chocolate on the outer edges. Gently place the other large shell on top and allow to set in the fridge
