Last week I shared a delicious carrot cake hot cross buns recipe, and this week I have another wonderfully simple Easter recipe.
Easter eggs are the ultimate Easter food and this recipe is a really easy way to make your own at home. All you need is some chocolate and some easter egg moulds.
Get your little ones involved and make an activity out of it. For older kids, you can also add a toy into the middle for a little extra fun!
If you’re wondering about giving chocolate to little ones, check out my blog on chocolate for babies and toddlers. I also shared more about offering chocolate at Easter to young children on my Instagram.
I hope you enjoy making this recipe with your little ones this Easter!
- Chop chocolate into small pieces
- Melt chocolate in a heatproof bowl above a small pan half full of boiling water
- Pour into Easter egg moulds
- Tilt the mould so the chocolate covers the surface
- Place in the fridge until set
- Repeat the process a few times until the chocolate layer is about 1/2cm thick
- Optional: add a toy for older children (be careful with younger children and ensure they are supervised)
- Brush melted chocolate around the rim before sticking it together
- Leave to set again
Some additional notes on this recipe:
- You can use any kind of chocolate you like, including vegan chocolate if you want to make it dairy free!
- Mix up the sizes by using different sized moulds – there are plenty available to have some fun with
- Any messy edges can be melted flat by holding them against a heated frying pan: heat up a frying pan and gently place the egg (rim side down) on the heat for a few seconds which will smooth it out. This melts the edge and allows you to stick the two egg halves together.
