We are so excited for Easter and the family gathering we will be having. I saw the large, side-opening eggs I used for this at the craft store a few weeks ago and knew I’d have to make something fun with them.
Originally I thought it would be really cool to do a large chocolate egg and fill it with small toys to add to my little ladies Easter baskets this year. It morphed from that idea to filling it with the best chocolate mousse ever for dessert to this delicious, fun and colorful edible chocolate Easter egg centerpiece.
The colored sugar just kills me. It’s so fun and easy to make… who knew?!
Here’s what I used to make this fun Easter egg centerpiece.
The colored sugar was so easy to make. I used regular white granulated sugar, dropped a couple drops of food coloring into it and mixed. All you have to do is blend it until the dark color spots are completely incorporated. It took me about a minute to mix each of them.
After washing the egg mold thoroughly, I gave each half a nice coat of oil. The oil helps the colored sugar stick to the egg mold and helps as a releasing agent with the regular chocolate.
Once the eggs were coated with oil, I sprinkled the top egg half with the different colors of sugar. I added about a tablespoon of one color and spread it in a line. Then I added the next color and did the same until the entire top of the egg was coated with colored sugar.
It really looks awesome when they’re done. Next, I melted the white chocolate right in a ziploc bag. Once melted, cut a small hole in the tip, then piped it around the rim of the egg and zigzagged it in the middle. This gave it a great design. You could really go crazy with this and make it your own. After the chocolate was on, I popped it into the freezer for about 20 minutes to let it set firm.
Here’s how one of my egg tops turned out. Pretty snazzy, right?!
Next, I melted the regular chocolate. Then poured it into the bottom egg half (that was coated with oil). I spread it on all sides and made sure there were no holes then set in the freezer to harden. It only took about 30 minutes but the longer you let it freeze the easier it is to loosen from the mold. At least that’s been my experience.
Once both pieces were chilled, I popped them out of their molds, filled the bottom with Cadbury Mini Eggs and a cute little Peep. That’s it! The green grass I will be using is an edible grass I found at my local craft store but you can also order it online here. Legit… this centerpiece is completely edible besides the plate I will have it set on. I just think that’s so neat and my kids think it’s awesome! 🙂
