Homemade Chocolate Easter Egg Recipe Ideas

Yay! Reasons I love Spring.... Chocolate and Sweet Treat Related Holidays!!!

I picked up these Easter Egg Moulds in a discount shop a few years ago and they are just the best thing!!! Everyone loves a homemade treat and these eggs have gone down really well every year I make them!

Theme your eggs towards the recipient.


1 "Healthy" Chocolate Egg.

Ok this might not be technically "healthy" but it's the healthiest option here!

  • Dark Chocolate
  • Dried Cranberries
  • Mixed Peel
  • Chopped Nuts

I filled the base of he mould with fruit and nuts then poured in the melted dark chocolate
Let it set and join both sides

2 "Sweets and Treats" Egg

  • Milk Chocolate
  • Dark Chocolate
  • White Chocolate
  • Sour Snakes
  • Gummy Bears
  • Skittles
  • M&M's

Again fill the mould with sweets.
Drizzle over one type of chocolate, let set, repeat with next chocolate and repeat again!
Let to set completely
Fill the inside with lots of tasty sweets.
Use some melted chocolate to join both sides.


3. "Liquorish Allsorts" Egg

  • Chocolate
  • Liquorish Allsorts

Line up your liquorish allsorts in the mould.
Melt your chocolate.
Start to fill your mould with chocolate to hold sweets in place.
Let your chocolate set.
Fill your egg with remaining sweets.
Then use some melted chocolate to join both sides together and keep sweets inside.


4 "Tiramisu" Egg

  • Dark Chocolate
  • Boudoir Fingers
  • Cocoa Powder
  • Double Cream
  • Mascarpone
  • Espresso
  • Sugar
  • Rum/Baileys etc. (optional)

3/4 coat your egg with melted chocolate, let set so top is open.

Fill with Tiramisu:

Line with boudoir fingers soaked in espresso and rum
Mix mascarpone, cream and sugar together
Pour over fingers
Grate Chocolate over
Repeat layers until egg is full
Top with cocoa powder and grated chocolate
Garnish with a chocolate spoon

See the first one really was the healthy option!!!!

I keep these fresh and display them beautifully by wrapping in cellophane and ribbons.

Hope you feel inspired to treat your loved ones to a homemade egg-elicious treat!!!

So which is your favourite Egg??
