Roll the marzipan into small egg shapes, and place on the biscuits. Using a tsp, quickly drizzle over the melted chocolate.
Top tip for making Chocolate Easter biscuits
Don't bother melting chocolate over a pan of simmering water. Just break it up and put it in the microwave on a low or defrost setting for a few minutes, stirring halfway through.
