Ingredients:


1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup milk
mixed colored candies
1 cup walnuts chopped
5 1/4 oz chocolate pudding
1 lb powdered sugar

How to make chocolate easter eggs:
  • you will need melted butter. so take a 3 qt. saucepan and melt butter into it.
  • when the butter is melted stir in pudding mix and blend until it gets smooth.
  • you should gradually stir in milk.
  • you need to cook this mixture over medium heat and keep stirring constantly.
  • a little later the mixture will get very thick and start boiling.
  • when it is sufficiently thick it will leave the sides of the pan and then remove the saucepan from heat.
  • then you should add to it powdered sugar and vanilla. mix well until smooth and stir in walnuts.
  • you should allow the mixture cool so that it is stiff enough to hold its desired shape.
  • so the moment the mixture is stiff enough shape it into 12 eggs, using about 2 t. for each.
  • now place them on the waxed paper-lined baking sheet and refrigerate for 30 min.
  • after 30 min. you need to dip each egg in cooled chocolate and place them on a cooling rack over waxed paper.
  • finally it is time to arrange marshmallow flowers over the eggs. but make sure that you do it before the chocolate sets.
  • marshmallow flowers
  • firstly cut mini marshmallows in thirds crosswise.
  • then dip cut side of each piece into colored sugar.
  • in order to resemble flowers you need to arrange 5 pieces, sugared side up, on each egg.
  • store in the fridge.
