Reviews for Chocolate-Covered Eggs
Sort By :
These were great. I loved the texture and the taste. I did use almond bark for a coating and decorated with white chocolate. Next time I will experiment with flavorings in the filling.
I just made these, did not use the yellow center, just shaped into eggs. The "fondant" tastes great and works up very easily. I chose to use a chocolate chip/paraffin wax dip and then used Easter sprinkles on them. This recipe is a keeper.
For less sweet variety, substitute 3/4 cup of the Confectioners Sugar with pulverized Nilla Wafers. Grind them in a food processor. They end up being a bit more grainy texture but it is an acceptable trade off for less sweet.
I had A friend make some with Strawberry and lemon filled they were the best.
