Surprise Candy Filled DIY Chocolate Easter Eggs

Makes one large chocolate egg

Ingredients

  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • assorted small Easter candy

Instructions

  • Melt half of the chocolate chips {1 cup} until smooth. I use a chocolate melter or you can use the double boiler method on the stove.
  • Using a plastic or silicone egg shaped mold {I used the Mastrad brand from Michael's Craft Store} pour or spread the warm chocolate into the inside mold cavity, covering completely in a thick even layer.
  • Chill until hardened and set, about 30 minutes depending on the size of your mold.
  • If you want the chocolate shell to be thickened you can add another layer and repeat the process {I do 2 layers}. If not, gently remove chocolate shell from the mold and place on a plate in the fridge.
  • Repeat the process to make another half egg shell.
  • Once both chocolate shells are hardened and removed from the mold, you can add candy to one half.
  • To seal halves together, put a plate in the microwave and heat for 1 minute. Place a chocolate egg half flat side down on the hot plate for a few seconds until the chocolate starts to melt.
  • Gently press the egg half onto the filled egg half to seal. Place in fridge to chill for at least 5 minutes.
  • Serve on a platter with decorative grass and sprinkles and let the kiddos break open their surprise chocolate egg and dig in!
