How to make your own Easter egg

It's easier than you think

Make your own Easter eggs

This Easter instead of trailing the shops to find a mass-produced egg, why not get creative and make your own?

A personalised organic and fair trade chocolate Easter egg for the children in your family will be truly appreciated. Here’s how to do it.

You will need:

  • Chocolate (see below for recommended products)
  • A pan
  • Glass bowl or jug
  • Spoon
  • Egg moulds (available from craft shops – we got ours from Hobbycraft)
  • Icing pen
  • Clear cellophane or roasting bags
  • Ribbon

To make your eggs you will need to:

  1. Put the glass bowl or jug into a pan of boiling water and add the chocolate slowly and allow to melt.
  2. Pour a layer of melted chocolate into the egg mould and place in the fridge for 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Take out of the fridge, add another layer of chocolate to the mould and stick the 2 halves together and put back in the fridge until fully set.
  4. Take out of the fridge and carefully peel away the mould. Using an icing pen pipe your message on the egg and allow to set one last time.
  5. To package your egg, place it into a clear cellophane bag (roasting bags work perfectly), add a few mini eggs and tie with ribbon.

  1. Inspired by the homemade Easter egg article we have secured some moulds. Think it might work out rather more expensive though as now everyone we know wants a personalised egg! :) Fabulous idea, thank you
