Stay In Devon asked us to make some #stayinhappybunnies Easter memories and sent a fabulous Make Your Own Easter Eggs kit to The Madhouse.
Inside we discovered some egg moulds, chocolate buttons and a little bag of sweets, as well as some step-by-step instructions and a master chocolatier hat.
Juliette prepared the moulds, polishing them then wiping them with oil.
I fought off lots of sneaky little fingers pinching buttons out of the bowl and melted them in the microwave !
Time to start filling the moulds with melted chocolate. You can see how fascinated Pierre was !
Tilting the moulds to get each little bit covered in chocolate was great fun, with a delicious sense of imminent danger when the chocolate got close to the edges !
Pierre was still fascintaed, watching them as they set. I don't think he'd ever thought about how chocolate got made into egg shapes before !
We went for three layers of chocolate to make it nice and thick.
We were all very impressed at how well they came out. Placing the flat edges on a greaseproof paper-covered hot baking sheet makes them melt just enough to stick them together - very clever !
The sweets were designed for creating funny faces.
Here are our finished eggheads. Sadly they didn't hang about for long though - the kids couldn't wait to taste the results of their hard work. The verdict? Absolutely delicious ! We've kept the moulds and they've already asked if we can make some more !
Thanks Stay In Devon for helping us to create some #stayinhappybunnies special memories !
