Chocolate Filled Easter Eggs

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!

Chocolate Filled Easter Eggs

Supplies:

  • 6 Eggs
  • Pin
  • 1 Kabob stick
  • 1 Tbs. vinegar
  • Egg carton
  • 6 chocolate candy bars
  • Masking Tape
  • Paint
  • Paint brush

How to:

  • Wash the eggs gently with soap and water and pat dry
  • Using a pin, carefully tap a small hole in the top and bottom of the egg.
  • Insert a kabob stick into the egg to break up the yoke the blow through one of the holes to release the egg
  • Place the hollowed eggs in a pot of water and 1 Tbs. vinegar. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Once the eggs are dry, place masking tape over the bottom hole and place them in an egg carton
  • Temper the chocolate and pour into each egg until full
  • Set aside to set, then gently peel off the masking tape
  • Decorate with paint and enjoy!

Multi-tasking for the win! Listening to the inspiring speakers at #therisesummit today while I work on #design projects. Is there anything better to wake up to than the sweet smell of cinnamon rolls fresh out of the oven? This recipe takes patience, but the end result is well worth the wait!
