the boys were preparing Easter eggs for Easter Sunday. I must admit they turned out better with
hubbie at the helm! When it comes to
the kitchen he always seems to have a better grip on things. There was less chocolate wasted and less
chaos than when I helped the boys with the choconchoc
The ingredients we were sent were quite inspirational
though, fudge, honeycomb, silver little balls, icing in an array of colours,
jelly tots, chocolate stars and chocolate buttons! The hardest part was not having a little taste test of
had the clever idea to add the fudge and honeycomb to the chocolate moulds so
when they set the chocolate was studded in little pieces, it certainly made the
eggs more delicious.
Hubbie did not
need any help but I certainly do, so next time before I embark on egg making I
shall read this useful egg-making
guide. You can download the
instructions to ensure it’s a success!
But whatever happens when it comes to an activity involving chocolate
its always going to be fun!
encouraged the boys to use the icing to stick on the extra decorating goodies
we had in. But I like the idea from the
guide better using a little extra melted chocolate to do the sticking. They enjoyed covering the egg in big bits of
icing so they could literally cover the egg in sugary treats!
We will be letting them eat the tasty egg
over a few days I think (if we can get away with it!) as it has about four days
worth of sugar allowance in it!!!
boys had a fabulous time though and they were very proud of their
creations. It was a wonderful family
activity and one that will become a yearly tradition for us I am sure.
