Chocolate Confetti Easter Eggs

Here’s a fun Easter treat–chocolate confetti eggs bursting with sprinkles and candies inside! There as fun to break open as they are to eat. And they are super simple to make!
Each year, I love coming up with a unique treat to place inside my kids’ Easter baskets. There was the year of the homemade chocolate lollipops that were shaped like bunnies. I promise that those sound way more complicated than they were. Chocolate melts, lollipop mold, lollipop sticks, and DONE! Oh, and the chocolate dipped Rice Krispies treats were a big hit one year. I love to come up with treats that are creative but also quick and easy. We busy moms only have so much time in a day. Am I right?
Last year I decided to try my hand at making chocolate eggs. But not just any chocolate eggs. I made chocolate confetti Easter eggs with a little surprise inside.These hollow chocolate eggs were filled with candies and colorful sprinkles. This tasty treat was such a hit that I think we're going to have to repeat it this year. Want to give them a try for your Easter festivities? Here's how...
Chocolate Confetti Easter Eggs
What You'll Need

  1. Wash and dry the plastic Easter eggs.
  2. 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.
  3. Fill the larger half of a plastic egg with chocolate leaving about 1/4 inch space at the top.
  4. 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.)
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Using the knife, cut a small hole in the bottom of the chocolate egg.
  8. Put small candies and sprinkles in through the opening.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
Don’t forget to save a few chocolate confetti eggs for yourself too. You don’t want to miss out on the deliciousness because everyone knows that the best part of an Easter egg–even a chocolate one–is breaking it open to see what’s inside.
What would you put inside these fun Easter eggs? Candy? Sprinkles? A sweet message? Whatever you choose, your whole family is sure to love them!
Happy Easter!
