Here is an egg-stra special recipe for homemade chocolate eggs that are so-o0ohh good--and so egg-stremely easy to make--that you'll wish the Easter bunny hopped by more often.
1 package (4 servings) Jell-O Instant Pudding
1/3 cups boiling water 75mL
1/3 cup margarine 75mL
3 cups sifted icing sugar 750mL
6 squares EACH Baker's WHITE and SEMI-SWEET Chocolate
Stir pudding, water and margarine in a large bowl until smooth.
Mix in sugar by cupfuls, stirring until mixture forms a ball. Form into 1 1/2 inch (3cm) egg shapes. Refrigerate until firm.
Partially melt chocolate in separate bowls over hot water until 2/3 melted. Remove from heat and continue stirring until all chocolate is melted and smooth.
Dip eggs into chocolate; decorate with colored sprinkles or swirl icing over them, or child's name written on them or flowers or dots.
Makes 24 eggs.
NOTE: For multi-colored eggs, make 2 fillings using 2 pudding flavors. Roll small centers from 1 flavor, surround by second flavor.
