Candy Easter Egg

It’s been some time since I’ve made one thing only for enjoyable, and what might be extra enjoyable than a large speckled Sweet Easter Egg? With the vacation developing, I wished to make one thing tremendous cute that I might share with my household after our Easter dinner. Youngsters will adore this, however adults find it irresistible too.

Candy Easter Egg

Silicone mould

You may’t make a large Easter egg with out an egg shell mould! This 3D Silicone Egg Mildew is what I used. It creates an egg a bit greater than 7″ tall. And it even comes with a bit picket mallet for breaking the assembled egg (which I misplaced instantly after opening the package deal and by no means discovered once more, le sigh). Every shell mould has a foot on the underside so that they don’t wobble round and develop into misshapen because the sweet units.

For the speckle.

Seize a stiff bristle paint brush (new, unused, and kitchen-dedicated) 1 tablespoon of mini semisweet chips and 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil. I used sunflower oil as a result of it’s what I favor these days in all my baking and sweets. Soften the semisweet chips with the oil within the microwave. The oil loosens the chocolate’s texture to develop into extra fluid. That is the right consistency for creating speckles and splatters.

Subsequent, dip the paint brush within the chocolate and use a finger to flick the top of the comb in the direction of the molds. This creates speckling. Then, dip the paint brush within the chocolate once more, loading it nicely, and fling the chocolate onto the molds. This creates a paint splatter impact. Whisk the molds away to the freezer to sit back for about 10 minutes, or till completely set.

For the shells.

One 12 oz. bag of meltable sweet wafers is a bit more than you’ll must make one assembled egg. Nevertheless, I like to recommend melting your entire bag in case you want a bit further for spackling skinny spots within the shells. Soften the sweet in a microwave-safe bowl within the microwave at 30 second to 1 minute intervals.

Stir nicely between heating intervals, and use the residual warmth from the bowl to do a lot of the melting of the wafers as you stir. That is key to not overheat the sweet. Let the sweet cool a bit earlier than you pour it into the molds. It ought to be heat to the contact (not sizzling!) but nonetheless pourable.

Gently unfold the sweet into the mould utilizing a small spatula. Whisk the molds away, as soon as once more, to the freezer to set about 20 minutes or till the sweet is totally hardened.

Take a look at outcomes.

I made three completely different eggs which turned out to be like snowflakes – no two alike! Ha. It was a studying course of, however I actually love how every one turned out.

Try 1: For a marbled look pour sizzling melted sweet into the molds and switch them to swirl the sweet over the cavity surfaces (see video for motion). I did this with the blue shells, and the chocolate speckling was not preserved. As an alternative, it created marbling – which I like! However it wasn’t precisely what I used to be going for.

Try 2: For a marbled and speckled look, use a mini spatula to partially unfold heat sweet into the mould, then use the swirl approach to complete masking the cavity. The result’s speckling and marbling – which I additionally like! Nevertheless, I wished to attempt once more.

Try 3: For a strictly speckled look, use a mini spatula to softly unfold heat sweet into the mould. Once more, you’ll be able to see this motion within the video on the finish of this weblog put up. It preserves all of the semisweet chocolate speckling and spatter marks. Now that is what I used to be going for!

Unmold the egg shells.

That is the enjoyable half! Gently peel away the silicone molds to disclose the attractive speckled sweet eggshells. If you happen to’re trying to simplify issues, you’ll be able to skip the speckling and mould the sweet with out it. This gives you the looks of a large dyed Easter egg – nonetheless very cute! (Though I’m keen on the speckling.)


Easter sweet is the prettiest of all candies, I feel. Collect your favourite and most colourful small candies for filling the egg shell. Embrace little toys, foil-wrapped sweets, sprinkles, malted milk eggs, jelly beans – no matter will comfortably match inside. Pile the sweet up within the middle.

Be part of the shells.

In a small nonstick pan, over low warmth, gently soften the sides of an egg shell (see the video for motion). The melted sweet will be a part of the shells collectively. Let this stand at room temperature till set. This gained’t take lengthy in any respect, in case your room temperature stays round 69-72F. In any other case you’ll be able to switch the egg to the fridge to hurry setting.

As I discussed earlier than, the silicone mould comes with a bit picket mallet which you’ll be able to give with the egg should you’re giving it as a present. I misplaced mine instantly upon opening the package deal. And I’m having my very own Easter egg hunt in search of it (word: I’ve a pet that likes to hold issues away). Nevertheless, I used a picket dough tamper (as seen within the video) that labored simply advantageous.

In fact, should you don’t have time to make your individual Piñata Egg at house, you’ll be able to buy one on-line, full with picket mallet, though they’ll get fairly dear.
