Easy Edible Chocolate Easter Egg Centerpiece
Prep Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Made of chocolate and filled with candy, this edible chocolate Easter egg centerpiece is a fun way to tie in spring colors and Easter egg shape.
- large egg mold
- food coloring
- regular chocolate chips, melted
- white chocolate chips, melted
- Small Easter candy, Cadbury Mini Eggs, jelly beans, etc.
- Edible grass, optional
- Peeps, optional
- In a ziploc bag, add sugar and 1-2 drops food coloring. Blend until there are no more dark spots and color is evenly distributed. Add more coloring if desired. Repeat with whatever colors you'd like.
- Coat the inside of large egg mold with oil.
- In the top half of the egg mold, sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the first color of sugar in one end of the mold. Dump. Add 1 tablespoon of the next color and tip mold to form a line of color. Dump. Repeat with the colors you desire.
- In a ziploc bag, melt a small amount of white chocolate (I used 1/4 cup). Once fully melted, snip the corner of the bag and pipe white chocolate along the rim of the sugar-coated egg half. Then drizzle back and forth, up and down to create a cage look. Freeze.
- In the bottom half egg mold, pour melted regular chocolate chips (I used 1/2 cup). Spread until the entire egg is coated. Freeze.
- Unmold both pieces. Fill with your favorite Easter or spring candy. Add edible grass or peeps if desired. Enjoy!
Freezing the oil/sugar-coated molds before adding chocolate will help the chocolate set quicker.
I froze my bottom regular chocolate egg upside down to help form a lip on the rim.
