Easter eggs - Home made

Hmmmmmm so as ever it's been a while :), that sounds like a Staind song.

I decided upon making her a kinder egg styled egg, with milk chocolate on the outside and white chocolate on the inside , filling it with her favourite sweets dolly mixtures.

For making your own eggs you will need some equipment , you ideally need the following:

1 cooking thermometer
Rubber spatula
Easter Egg moulds
A basket for egg to sit in
Cellafane ( I got some nice stuff in a florist on Wicklow Street Dublin)
