Make your own Easter eggs!

Now obviously it’s actually easier to buy Easter Eggs (and I’ll be recommending some of the best ones around on Friday). But when I discovered that Lakeland sell Easter Egg moulds (for £3.49) it seemed like too good an opportunity to resist.

So the Oompa Loompas and I set to work. What we didn’t realise before we started is that you have to melt, then layer and then refrigerate three times to get a lovely hard shell, but once you get the hang of it it’s incredibly easy. And the advantage is that you can choose which chocolate to use – so we went for the extremely good quality Green & Blacks Organic Milk (also available from Ethical Superstore) which worked perfectly. We really did feel like we were working in a chocolate factory – the smell was incredible.

Once the eggs have set (you do have to be patient), it’s time to decorate. Dr.Oetker do icing writing tubes, available from Ocado. (Dr.Oetker also have very cute chocolate bunny making kits, available from Sainsbury's). Then fill them with whatever you choose, and either sandwich together (slightly tricky) or leave as two halves. And there you have it. Homemade Easter eggs. And no you can’t eat them yet. Naughty.

    I remember doing this with my sister when we were little – and I know my two would love it – not sure I could make them hold out from eating them until easter sunday though…
