We bought our egg mould in a cook shop around Easter time


Method
Add some sprinkles to each mould if you want to have extra decoration on your eggs.
Break the chocolate into chunks in a small bowl and melt gently in the microwave, stopping just as the chocolate is beginning to melt.

Ready for the microwave


Add a splash of oil (we used about half a teaspoon of olive oil) and stir into the chocolate.

Pop the half eggs out of the mould.

Dip the kids knife in a cup of hot water until it warms up. Hold the warm kids knife gently against the flat side of one of the half eggs. This will gently melt the surface (and make it stick to another half egg).
