Chocolate Easter Egg


Egg mould (You can get these in Dealz, amazon or Ebay)

200g of great quality chocolate (Try Aldi’s chocolate choceur)

Foil or plastic coloured wrapping paper

Pastry brush

Sunflower oil

Optional: smarties, chocolate buttons, malteser’s etc



1: Begin by rubbing the inside of the chocolate egg mould with sunflower oil to prevent the chocolate egg from sticking and to also give the egg a nice sheen!


  1. Using a bowl, break up the chocolate into small pieces. Place the bowl over a pot of simmering water. Make sure the bottom of the bowl doesn’t come into contact with the water as this could burn the chocolate. Simmer gently and remove bowl once all the chocolate has fully melted.
  1. Pour a small amount of chocolate into each mould and using a pastry brush coat the shells evenly. Leave to set for at least 20mins.
  1. Repeat this process a few times as you need to build up layers to for the egg. Roughly this will take 4-5 layers.
  2. When you are finished with the layers, use a knife to smooth out the edges to ensure they are even, leave to set.
  1. Remove eggs from moulds and using melted chocolate stick the two halves together. If you want you can add sweets to the centre of the egg before sticking the two halves together.
  1. Finally, decorate the egg using knife, paint brush or wrap up in plastic wrapping! Be as creative as you want!
