Essentials recipe Make these homemade mini chocolate eggs as a special Easter gift this year. Each chocolate egg is made up of white, dark and milk chocolate, making them extra indulgent. This recipe makes 6 eggs but feel free to double the ingredient quantities to make more.

Ingredients

  • 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.

Method

  1. 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.)
  2. 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.
  3. 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 its up to you! Put in the fridge for at least 1 hour until solid.
  4. Tap the shells and peel away to reveal the solid chocolate eggs.
