IngredientsFor this Easter recipe you will need:
- 6 eggs
- 200g milk chocolate
- 200g white chocolate
- 200g plain chocolate
- 3tsp sunflower oil
Put into an egg box to serve or give away as a gift. Decorate the box as you like, and finish with a ribbon.
- Take a skewer and tap a small hole in the base of an egg. Use your fingers to peel away a little shell, tip out the egg into bowl. Repeat with the other eggs. Rinse the eggs and put hole downwards on an egg rack in a warm place to dry out. (The airing cupboard would be good.)
- Find 3 heatproof bowls that can balance on top of 3 small pans. One third fill each pan with water and put over a gentle heat. Break the chocolate into squares. Put the different chocolates into 3 different bowls, each with 1tsp oil. Rest over the pans and heat to melt.
- Turn the egg shells, hole upwards on the egg rack. Spoon or pour in the different chocolates. You can layer up different flavours or choose a different flavour for each egg – it’s up to you! Put in the fridge for at least 1 hour until solid.
- Tap the shells and peel away to reveal the solid chocolate eggs.
