#stayinhappybunnies Making our own Easter eggs

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 !
