Fill your Easter basket this year with homemade chocolate cream-filled eggs. Making them at home is easier than you think — and is even a fun project do with kids. Everything is better when it’s homemade and these eggs are no exception. With a few ingredients and some tools, you can whip these up before the egg hunt is over.
These eggs have a hard chocolate shell and are filled with a creamy center. For our recipe, we’ve used Wilton milk chocolate candy melts, which are ideal for melting and molding candies. Try looking for these or another brand of candy-coating or confectionery coating chocolate. It’s also best to use a plastic or silicone egg mold that can be found at any craft or baking store, especially around Easter.
So, this Easter, try making your own candies at home. Fill your Easter baskets with these homemade treats and make sure to have them for dessert after Easter dinner. This is a great weekend kitchen project — and one that yields a chocolate cream dessert!
