- plastic Easter eggs
- baking chocolate or chocolate melts
- large mixing bowl
- candies and sprinkles
- sharp knife
- Wash and dry the plastic Easter eggs.
- Place baking chocolate or chocolate melts in a large microwavable bowl. Heat it on high for 30 seconds at a time. Stir after each heating. Continue doing this until the chocolate is completely melted without any lumps.
- Fill the larger half of a plastic egg with chocolate leaving about 1/4 inch space at the top.
- Pop the top of the plastic egg onto the chocolate-filled bottom. Slowly spin the egg around to coat the entire inside with chocolate. (Tip: It’s best to use a light colored egg, so you can easily see if there are any places that have not been covered with chocolate.)
- Place the egg in the freezer. Flip it after about 2-3 minutes and place it back in the freezer. Leave it in the freezer for about 6-8 more minutes.
- Take the plastic egg out of the freezer. Tap gently and twist the two sides of the plastic egg apart to remove your hollow chocolate egg.
- Using the knife, cut a small hole in the bottom of the chocolate egg.
- Put small candies and sprinkles in through the opening.
- Replace the part of the egg you cut out using some of the remaining melted chocolate from the bowl as “glue”. Don't worry about getting the egg patched perfectly since it's just the bottom.
- Repeat these steps to make as many confetti eggs as you need. You can even make them in batches once you get the hang of it and can attend to multiple eggs at once.
That’s a wrap! Oh, and speaking of wrap… Don’t forget to wrap your Chocolate Confetti Eggs inside clear treat bags. Throw in a few extra sprinkles and top off each bag with a ribbon. They’ll look amazing in your kids’ Easter baskets. Imagine the looks on their sweet faces when they break–or bite–open their tasty chocolate eggs and find them bursting with candies and sprinkles. It’s a surprise you’ll want to capture.
