Here's how to make some quick and easy homemade chocolate Easter eggs. Look out for small silicone egg moulds in supermarkets, cook shops or online around Easter time.
Time: 15 minutes
Age: Any age
Chocolate (we used Cadbury's milk chocolate)
Silicone egg mould
100s and 1000s sprinkles (optional)
We bought our egg mould in a cook shop around Easter time
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.
Pour into the egg moulds and flatten off with the kids knife.
Pop into a refrigerator for 10-15 minutes until set.
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).
Push two half eggs together to make complete eggs.
Put back into the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes until fully set.
