This too-cool hollow chocolate Easter egg craft is easier than it looks

If your Easter baskets are looking a little empty this year, we have just the thing to fill them up with some chocolaty goodness. These hollow Easter eggs made of drizzled chocolate look so fancy that no one will believe you made them at home on the cheap.

In this edible twist on an Easter egg craft, swap yarn and glue for melted chocolate. Drizzled over a balloon, it creates a decorative hollow egg that's good enough to eat. For an added bunny bonus, you can even hide candy inside.

Hollow chocolate Easter eggs recipe

Ingredients and supplies:

  • Chocolate candy melts in pastel colors (1 cup solid candy melts = 3 hollow eggs)
  • Piping bags or zip-close bags
  • Latex balloons
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Straws or wooden skewers
  • Clothespins
  • Plastic cups or glasses (larger than your inflated balloons)
  • Small candies, like Robin Eggs (optional)

Directions:

1. Inflate the balloons, and melt the chocolate

Inflate the balloons slightly, to about the size of a real egg or slightly larger. (Do not use water balloons. The latex is too thin and will burst when you pour hot melted chocolate on it.) Put 1 cup of chocolate candy melts into a bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating until completely melted.

2. Drizzle chocolate on the balloons

Pour the melted chocolate into a piping bag or zip-close bag. Cut off the tip. Working over the sink or newspaper, hold an inflated balloon by the tied end. Lightly spray your balloons with nonstick cooking spray, then drizzle melted chocolate across the bottom of the balloon in all directions. Turn the balloon over, and continue drizzling chocolate over the top and sides.

3. Hang to dry

Using a clothespin, clip the balloon to a straw or wooden skewer, and balance it inside a cup or glass to dry.
