Yesterday I showed you my spring and Easter wreath, but this wreath is just gorgeous. It is made by Jessica from the adventures of nick and jessica. How cool is that?
Martha Stewart had a recipe to make your own chocolate eggs. Don't they look amazing?
Martha Stewart's chocolate egg how-to instructions.
My version of the chocolate eggs uses Hershey's Milk Chocolate, chocolate bars.
So, here it goes:
1. Pierce a hole in one end of a raw egg using a pin. Use a nail or small knife to make the hole a little larger (the size of a small button). Martha uses a rotary drill. Since I didn't have a rotary drill, mine were not perfectly round, nor neat. Use a popsicle stick (or something like this) to mix up the contents of the egg. Then pierce a hole in the other end. Have a small bowl ready and then blow downwards into the egg into the small hole and all the gooey egg stuff will come out the other end into the bowl. Wash the inside and outside of the egg. Leave it for several hours to dry. Then wash the inside again and leave overnight to dry. Be sure that the egg is dry before using for the next step.
3. Melt your 5-6 Hershey's chocolate bars. (I started out with six, but one mysteriously disappeared into my husband's tummy). I added semisweet chocolate chips to a smaller batch of melted chocolate and this worked too. I waited for the chocolate to cool a bit.
4. Fill a pastry bag with the melted chocolate (a small ziploc baggie with the corner cut off will work as well). Put the tip inside the egg and squeeze the chocolate into the eggs.
7. Tap the eggs gently on your counter to crack the shell and it will peel off easier.
