How to make your own Easter Eggs!

How to make your own Easter Egg

Last weekend, Dan and I decided to do something fun with our Sunday afternoon. It's not very often Dan and I make something together (every time "we" cook that means Dan takes over and I stand and watch, and Dan usually never gets involved when I bake), but we decided to make our own Easter Eggs.

Sometimes it's nice to do something like that as a couple rather than sitting around watching TV or playing on our phones or whatever!

I thought I'd share with you how we made them in case any of you want to try it out yourselves! Ours didn't turn out perfect- in fact only one half of the Easter Egg made it, but we definitely learnt what to do for next time!

You will need:

  • An Easter Egg Mould (I got mine here for £1)
  • 500g of chocolate (we used a supermarket own brand but you can use whatever kind of chocolate you like!)
Method

1. Make sure your mould is clean and ready to use.

2. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of boiling water.

3. Spoon the chocolate into the moulds until all is covered and the thickness is around 5mm (that's super important and where we went wrong!)

4. Pop into the fridge to cool and set.

5. Once out of the fridge, break out of mould and use a little melted chocolate around the edges to stick together.

6. Place back into the fridge until completely set!

The great thing about making your own Easter Eggs is that it's not a huge deal if they don't look like the ones you buy in the store. Ours certainly didn't, one half wasn't anywhere near thick enough but they still tasted delicious and we had so much fun making them! 

Kids will love making these, as will any adults who just want to make a quick and fun treat!

Have you tried making Easter Eggs before? How did they go?
