This worked out really well. I began following the recipe but quickly decided to just double it. The "eggs" came out like I remember a while back the store bought ones have been more liquid for some years. I think these are better. I found that moving the dough back and forth to the fridge helps make it easier to form the centers then I froze them hard before dipping in chocolate. I also needed more chocolate when we were almost done.

Oh, these are good, maybe too good! I did have a bit of trouble with the centers getting too soft when coating with chocolate, but I froze the remaining centers, and there were no more problems. Thanks Todd!!

My boyfriend loves these. He said they taste just like the store ones.

I make these every year - after fiddling with the dipping I bought a small egg chocolate mold and now use it - it makes perfect half eggs every time!
If you would like to make them egg shaped. Try using one of those egg carriers for backpacking. Put a small hole in one side big enough for a straw. Pour the chocolate for the shell in and close it. Rotate it around to get a even coverage (may have to do this cold). When it is set blow or drip the insides down the straw, take them out and remove the straw and cap it with a bit more chocolate to fill the hole and let it set. Presto... Instant Cadbury(like) egg.
They sell them all year round in the UK but I thought I would try it anyway. It was very good. I find it amazing how you find out how to make all this stuff. Job well done.

Absolutely fabulous! I loved the recipe even though I couldn't shape the eggs. It turned out great and my Mother in law even liked them!

This recipe is the greatest! Delicous! Definetly one to try.
I make all of our easter candy from scratch. When I made these for my oldest son, I used the "egg mold" that I use to make other "filled" candy eggs. Worked GREAT and my son (who is a die hard lover of the Cadbury egg) absolutely loved them. I give this one a definite 5.
I couldn't make an egg shape, so made rounds. Delicious! Actually, being round(ish) was better. Everyone knew it wasn't the real egg, just thought I was magnificent in creating my own.
