Easter Chocolate Egg

Method

Home Made Easter Eggs

  1. Unwrap both chocolate bars and break off one square from each – set aside for use later. Take one of the chocolate bars, break into pieces and place in a heat-proof bowl suspended over a pan of boiling water. As the chocolate starts to melt, stir in 1 tsp of olive oil. And just before the chocolate has completely melted, turn off the heat.
  2. Using a teaspoon, place half of the mixture into one of the moulds. With the back of the spoon, spread the chocolate out evenly making sure all of the mould is covered. Repeat the process with the other half of the chocolate and the second mould.
  3. Place both moulds in the fridge for at least an hour to let the chocolate completely harden. Repeat the process again with the second chocolate bar.
  4. Once set, remove from the fridge and hold the mould in your hand for a couple of seconds to warm it up slightly – this should enable you to remove the egg from the mould without breaking it but you still have to be a bit careful!
  5. To set the two halves together, take the two squares of chocolate that you set aside and melt them. Hold the two halves together and using a pastry brush carefully apply the melted chocolate to the join and allow to cool. This is slightly fiddly but definitely worth it!
