We have had great fun decorating eggs, making bunny cards and bonnets with Easter approaching and we have now had the pleasure of creating our very own Easter eggs with Kleeneze Egg Moulds!
You can buy online for £5.99 and have them delivered directly to your door, which is ideal for busy mums and dads that don't fancy a trip to town, or you can always order from your local representative too. The great thing about them being silicone is that they can be used year after year and removing the eggs once set is seriously easy - you don't need to worry that they will get stuck as they are flexible and non-stick!
How To Make Your Own Easter Eggs
- Melt your chosen chocolate (200g approx) in a bowl above a pan of hot water stirring continuously or carefully in the microwave (start with 30 seconds on full power and then add 10 second intervals until complete). If you have a Silicone Chocolate Melting Pot you can also use that.
- Divide the melted chocolate equally between the 6 mould sections and swirl it around to cover all of the surfaces evenly.
- Turn the mould upsidedown above a sheet of greaseproof paper and leave to set.
- You will need to repeat this process several times to build up the layers of chocolate and then place in the fridge for an hour to set fully.
- Once you are happy with your egg halves, carefully remove them from the moulds and using a tiny bit of melted chocolate along the edges stick two halves together. You can add some treats inside your egg at this point too if you wish.
- Return to the fridge to set again for an hour.
- You can decorate the eggs with sweets if you want to (add drops of melted chocolate to make them stick) or you can wrap and give as gifts.
This was considerably easier to do than I had expected and they turned out really nicely with the patterns showing clearly. They are reasonably mess free and the moulds are very easy to clean too which is always a bonus. They certainly kept the Mini Mes entertained for some time and we have also used these to make egg shaped Victoria sponges!
