      Messy but lots of fun ! Thanks Dorothy ! I used to make these all the time years ago, and had misplaced my recipe. Glad to have found it through this site. This year, my 5 year old and I made only 16 eggs (same amount of ingredients , but bigger eggs) and are wrapping them up in tissue paper to give as gifts to our family. Suggestion. Split off 1/4 portion of the dough and color it yellow. Leave the bigger portion white. Then divide up equal number of balls of both colors. Flatten a white ball, insert a yellow ball, then shape your white around it & form your egg shape. When the finished egg is bitten into, there will be a yellow center inside the white !! Secondly......I use Royal Icing & cake decorating kit to add flowers, designs, and the person's initial...adds a nice personal touch to the gift. Happy Easter ! Jubbies_Mom xo

      These were a huge hit this year. Thank you so much... I did make different variations of this recipe. Peanut butter inside, mint, hazelnut chunk with carmel. All were a huge hit. Ty for posting. This wasnt as messy as I thought it would be, and they were great fun, sure some of our eggs were lopsided at first... we came out with just about 58 eggs. Next time am going to try different fruits inside and shape then as the fruit inside. Also might try a yogurt coating as well.. The ideas for this recipe are endless. TY DERF!

      These were so fun to make - my 3 kids age 1 - 9 did all the work! We found them best if left to sit in the fridge overnight.
