Chocolate Easter Egg by claremanson Chocolate Easter Egg by claremanson
A small white chocolate Easter Egg coloured green and two shades of blue.

A gift for my eldest daughters school teacher, made in the colours of the class toy Diamond The Dinosaur, each kid takes turns taking him home every day to stay the night. This weekend was Sarah's turn which gave me the idea for the colours.



This is the first time I have made my own chocolate eggs so I sure did learn a lot! So, if you have never made them before but want too, make a trial batch first to get some practice.

TIPS:
:bulletgreen: Do not make the chocolate shells too thin or they will break when removed from the mold.
:bulletgreen: When melting chocolate on the stove do not let your water get too hot or your chocolate will burn.
:bulletgreen: If your chocolate starts to go grainy add a touch of vegtable oil a few drops at a time, keep stirring and adding until it's back to a smooth consistency.
:bulletgreen: For something extra special, make some little chocolate to go inside before gluing the shell together.

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE.

I had to come find your eggses (I'm so failing at keeping up with my inbox) - it's so bright and colourful. Lovely job, particularly for your first try. The first time is always such a learning curve haha.

Once you get a bit more practise, you'll find you can make the shells really thin and they won't break.

Ah if that is the case then maybe it was because of the silicone mold that made it break, too much flexibility.
