The family, not knowing my project, threw all sorts of wonderful favourites at me...mint areo bars, snickers, tim tams, honeycomb, kit kat, and the list goes on!
I was thinking how pretty they would look set in their own little boxes tied with ribbon, or even shrouded in clear cellophane with a lovely tag and ribbon...great gift idea!
STUFFED EASTER EGG HALVES
1 Easter egg mold (I used the plastic packaging off an Easter egg from last year!)
filling of your choice
Melt the chocolate and stir until smooth. Brush on to the inside of the Easter egg mold until there is a thick and even coating over the entire surface. Be sure to make the edges thick as this will be the first thing to break if the coating is too thin. Reserve a little chocolate for the finishing touch.
Set the mold in the refrigerator or freezer to dry. Remove from cold, and gently push out of the mold. Fill with any sweet thing you desire--rocky road, clinkers, nougat, smarties, and then swirl over the reserved chocolate to ensure stability.
Wrap in cellophane or set in a gift box if desired.
