This Easter, you can stay away from busy queues and overflowing shopping trolleys when you have these Large and Mini Easter Egg Moulds at your disposal. Don’t waste money on shop-bought sweeties with too much packaging, when you can make them just how you like them at home, and get really professional results.
Great to Give
Whether it’s dark, white or milk chocolate that tickles your fancy, the options are endless with these plastic moulds that come in two separates sizes, so you can mix and match your designs, or plan for different occasions. When it comes to Eastertime, you can have baskets of mini choccy eggs ready for any keen treasure hunts, or lovingly created full-sized beauties that look really professional to give as gifts.
Easy to Make
It’s so simple to put these together, you can even get the little ones involved. Simply melt your choice of chocolate – we’ve found the better the quality of chocolate, the better the results – and brush on a thin layer to each half of the large moulds, leaving to set in the fridge. Brush on three additional layers, allowing time to set for each repetition, before turning the eggs out from the clever casings and using a little chocolate around the edges to join the halves together. Leave to chill, and then if you or the children can’t resist, tuck in!
Fun to Decorate
It’s not just chocolate that goes into the making of these cuties. You can incorporate favourite treats to personalise them for different members of the family, or to surprise your friends. Whether you add a handful of sweeties to the glaze before it sets, or dust with gold or silver lustre as a finishing touch, we’re sure your loved ones will be thrilled with your efforts. You could also fill the eggs with surprises, whether that’s hiding a few mini eggs inside the larger one, or filling it with jellybeans. If you’re feeling particularly creative you could even pipe on the recipient’s name or a message, for the best way to say Happy Easter.

To ensure your chocolatey treats have that professional-looking sheen and stay looking good for longer, you will need to temper your chocolate. This stops the cocoa fat from separating, preventing that dull grey ‘bloomed’ finish and meaning the chocolate shrinks slightly when set for an easy release from the mould.
