I'm all for a bit of Cadbury chocolate for the cinema or for my chocolate cake bar but when it comes to an easter egg, I like the fancy stuff. Saying that, if you're gonna make your own egg then you can mix things up a bit to just how the receiver likes it. I melted 100g of 70% lindt with 100g of their milk bar. (No reason why you couldn't use their intense orange of ginger for something a bit different)
Then get yourself an egg shell mould (this is what your egg normally comes in from the shops) and pour in the chocolate whilst swirling it around evenly. Then chill in the fridge or freezer for a minute until set and then pour in another layer of choc, do this 3 times until thick. Chill again and pop out of mould.
Once you have two halves, dip one in a shallow pool of choc and stick together (if you want to fill with any other treats then do so, or write a note or joke!)
I then melted white chocolate and drizzled it over and then sprinkled gold edible stars and mini gold dragees.
Tie a bow aaand ...voila!
