Making my own Easter eggs – part 2

On Monday I started making Easter eggs and today I had to finish the job. They looked great in their moulds.

Now for the bit I was most worried about – removing them from the moulds. But it was ridiculously easy, I just turned them upside down and they popped out. Don’t they look cute?

I filled them with some of the solid mini-eggs that I made on Monday.

Then I had to stick the two halves together using more melted chocolate. (I only used about a quarter of a packet, so to use the rest tonight we are having strawberries with melted chocolate to dip them in!) This was the hardest part of the whole thing, especially as the two sides didn’t always join up. But success!

Presentation skills aren’t my strong point, but I wrapped them up in foil and even added a bow. Whoo.

    I’m sure the kids loved them! I saw this really neat Easter egg project online which I’d like to try sometime. String eggs!
