Make Your Own Kinder Surprise Eggs
Remember the good old days when you could still find Kinder Surprise Eggs on every corner? Considering that they’re in pretty short supply in the US these days, we’ll go ahead and show you how to make your own so you can relive that chocolatey goodness from your childhood!
Please note that because the toy typically found inside the chocolate shell poses a choking hazard, it is not suitable for children under 3 years old and adult supervision is recommended. But we’re really all about the chocolate anyways, so feel free to skip the toy!
You'll Need (for 3):
- plastic wrap
- 6 eggs
- 8 oz milk chocolate
- 8 oz white chocolate
1. Tightly wrap each egg in plastic wrap and tape off the top (you can also hard-boil the eggs first to avoid a potential mess if they crack).
2. Melt the white chocolate in a water bath, dip each egg halfway into the liquid chocolate, and let dry.
3. Melt the milk chocolate in a water bath, dip each egg halfway into the liquid chocolate, and let dry.
4. Cut off the extra plastic wrap at the top.
5. Carefully remove the eggs from the plastic wrap.
6. Carefully remove the plastic wrap from the chocolate shells.
7. Run a large knife under warm water and gently lay it on the chocolate shells to smooth out the edges.
8. Gently press the shell halves together to form a full chocolate egg.
These chocolate treats are so good on their own, you won't even miss the toy inside!
