I’m sure everyone has tasted cheap Easter eggs. You know the ones … very sweet but not particularly chocolatey and after you swallow, it feels like there’s a layer of grease on the roof of your mouth. So here’s the secret to great-tasting eggs … use real chocolate. Today I’ll show you how to make truly beautiful Easter eggs by following the steps in the video below.

 

To make your own chocolate easter eggs at home you will need:

1 easter egg mold
Chocolate, if you don’t want that greasy mouth feel buy real chocolate that contains cocoa butter and temper it
white chocolate
oil based candy coloring (optional)

1. Spotty egg with m&m’s inside
