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

  • For this Easter recipe
  • you will need:
  • 6 eggs
  • 200g milk chocolate
  • 200g white chocolate
  • 200g plain chocolate
  • 3tsp sunflower oil

Method

  • 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.
