Ian’s Professional Engineering exam is right around the corner. In order to sneak in more study time, we decided to forgo driving back to Madison for Easter and opted to celebrate at home. Since it will just be the two of us, I wanted to make the day feel special by adding a few festive elements – one of which are these delicate chocolate-filled eggs!
My naturally dyed Easter eggs where a fail last year, so I really wanted to redeem myself! After the hollowed eggs were sanitized I filled them with tempered chocolate and let them set. I was nervous this would turn out to be another Easter DIY disaster, but much to my surprise they worked!
If you’re hosting Easter dinner, you could write each guests name on an egg and use them as table settings! Or simply hide them around the yard for a fun Easter egg hunt!

- Using a pin, carefully tap a small hole in the top and bottom of the egg.
