- Your favorite chocolate (300g of chocolate makes about 2 eggs, depending on the size of the mold)
- Kitchen thermometer
- Big bowl
- Egg mold
- Melt your chocolate to 44°- 46°C/113°F over a bain-marie or you can use a insert like this.
- Add extra chocolate and swirl and spread your chocolate around a little bit to bring the temperature down to 29°- 30°C/78°F. 30°C is the perfect temperature to pour the chocolate into the molds.
- Start pouring your chocolate into your
- egg mold.
- Flip the molds upside down for 5-10 minutes to let the excess chocolate drip back down into the bowl.
- Then flip it up again to let the remaining drops go into the center then back upside down.
- Place in the fridge to set for 10 minutes.
- Remove any uneven edges around the egg mold before continuing with a second layer of chocolate, following the same steps. Make sure your second layer of chocolate is still at 29°- 30°C/78°F.
- When fully solidified and set, remove from the mold, take a warm pan upside down and use it to heat the edges of one side of the egg and unite with the other half left on the mold. There you have it, your very own homemade Easter egg!

Other Creative Ideas To Try With The Family!
1. Splashed Version
With a knife or a spoon, dip into the chocolate, and then swing back and forth onto the egg mold to create splashes of chocolate. Let it cool in the fridge for 10 minutes and then add the first layer of chocolate. Keep in the fridge for 10 minutes and then add the second layer, exactly like we did with our first egg. Unite both sides as displayed in the video tutorial.
2. Hazelnut Egg
Add the first layer of melted chocolate to the egg mold and cool for 10 minutes in the fridge. Add the second layer and place it in the fridge again for 10 minutes. Unite both sides and then with a cooking brush, add more chocolate on the surface of the chocolate and let the egg roll into a bowl of chopped hazelnuts. Voila!
If you have whole hazelnuts, this handy gadget is great for chopping nuts as it doesn’t strain your hands and will save you from a mess.
- If the chocolate eggs don’t drop off the egg mold, they probably haven’t solidified yet, so keep your chocolate in the fridge for an additional 5-10 minutes to solidify your chocolate completely.
- Use gloves to manage the chocolate eggs, this way you won’t leave any finger prints whilst working on it.
