    Kzim4's Note:

    I got this recipe from my mom, but I don't know where she got it from. These are really good and simple. Don't let the amount of flour scare you. It can be sifted and reused, as it's just used in this recipe to form the egg mold.

      My mom made these when I was young, so I was excited to try them with my boys. I also used egg molds and a deviled egg tray, sprayed w/non-stick spray, then heavily dusted with flour. They came out fairly well, only a little sticky on the top edge. I also tried using chocolate chips, but think it was too thick. The egg creme was a little...well, we've been saying it's the consistency of snot, but it hold it's form. I think I needed to beat it longer? We'll definitely try again next year! Yummy and back to old-school Easter candy!

      Perfect recipe! We made these and I really appreciated that you drop the gelatin into the moving mixer rather than pour the hot syrup into it. We lightly tinted the syrup pink and it worked beautifully. Thanks Kzim4, we'll be making this recipe often!

      These were soooo good. We cheated and made them in an egg shaped develed egg holder instead of the flour. They came out perfect.
