DIY Chocolate Eggs
Kids nowadays are obsessed with those Chocolate Surprise Eggs. They are spending hours watching other kids open them up on youtube. My daughter is fascinated by it and I guess it is pretty cool. However, those chocolate eggs are pretty hard to find right now and they are fairly expensive costing about $2.00 per egg. When you can’t find it and they want it what can you do? Well, we tried making them ourselves and want to share the fun with you.
Making Chocolate Eggs
These are great to make with your kids for Spring and Easter and to put in their baskets.
What you will need:
- Melting Chocolate,
- Egg Mold,
- Small Egg Containers,
- Heat Resistant Glass Bowl,
- 2 cups of water,
- Pastry Brush,
- Baking Sheet,
- Pan, and
- tiny toys
What to do:
- Wash your mold and egg containers,
- For the double broiler method-bring a pot of water to a boil. I used two cups of water to heat up my small bowl of chocolate. Place the glass bowl above the pot of boiling water. If you opt to microwave your chocolate that is fine as well. Just follow the directions on the packaging.
- Once the chocolate is melted, start brushing a layer of chocolate into your mold.
- Once there is a nice thick coat, pop it in the freezer and wait about 2 minutes for it to be hardened.
- Repeat the process adding another layer of chocolate and freezing. Making about 4 layers in your egg.
- After the fourth layer is frozen you are going to pop the halves out of the mold.
- Then are going to put the tiny treats in your small egg containers.
- Next heat up a pan.
- Remove pan from heat.
- Take the two halves of the egg and place them face down in the pan for a second.
- Pull them out, pop the container in and seal shut by pushing the two halves together.
- Set aside in a cool, dry place until you are ready to share with your loved one.
