I love to make these homemade chocolate Easter eggs for my family. They are quick, easy, and delicious. I use two kinds of chocolate (semi-sweet and white) for dipping so that I have two different types of eggs.
1 pkg. (the size that makes 4 servings) of instant chocolate pudding
1/3 c. boiling water
1/3 c. softened margarine
3 c. icing sugar (best if sifted)
6 squares semi sweet chocolate (like the bakers’ kind)
6 squares white chocolate (bakers’ type)
You may also want some sprinkles or icing to decorate the eggs.
Instructions: Mix together the pudding mix, water, and margarine until smooth. Stir in the icing sugar, 1 cup at a time until you can form this “dough” into a ball. Pinch off pieces of the dough and form them into egg shapes. Put these into the refrigerator until firm. Partly melt the chocolate squares – I do this in separate bowls over a hot water bath. Stir frequently. Once it’s about 2/3 melted, remove it from the heat. Keep stirring until all the chocolate has melted. Dip the eggs into the chocolate and if you would like, decorate them with the sprinkles or icing. If you would like different colours or flavours for your eggs, you can make more than one filling using different pudding flavours. Then create a small egg from one of the flavours and wrap a second flavour around it before dipping in chocolate.
