Ingredients

  • 150 g/ 1 cup Dark/ Milk/ White Chocolate exact amounts will depend on the size of your mold

Toppings - one or a few or some of the following

  • Mini Cookies Jammie Dodgers/ Iced Gems/ Party Rings
  • Dried fruit Cherries, cranberries, apricots etc
  • Nuts Almonds, pistacios etc
  • Sprinkles
  • Mini eggs Cut a few open for visual interest
  • Pretzels
  • M&Ms
  • Aero balls Cut in half
  • Crushed honeycomb
  • fudge pieces
  • Sugarcraft decorations

Instructions

  • Select your toppings and ensure they will fit well inside of your egg mold without it looking overcrowded or too sparse
  • Check your mold for how much chocolate will be needed to fill it - reduce the amount of chocolate by 1/5 of this amount to avoid overflowing the mold once toppings are added. (My molds hold 150ml/ 50ml of chocolate, so I scaled that back to 120ml/ 40ml to account for the additional toppings
  • Temper/ melt the chocolate - I do recommend using tempered chocolate for this recipe, since it will give far better results - see my guide to tempering chocolate
  • Pour the chocolate into your egg mold and gently tilt the mold from side to side until the chocolate reaches the edge then lay on a flat surface
  • Add the topping(s) to the egg, working quickly, as the chocolate will begin to set within a couple of minutes
  • Leave to set then remove from the mold

Notes

Nutritional information will vary widely for this recipe depending on the size of your molds, type of chocolate used and topping selections. Please use my estimate purely as a guide. Needless to say, these are a treat. They are not remotely healthy.
