Chocolate covered Marshmallow eggs

Okay, the over whelming consensus was that the Martha eggs looked too difficult. I thought it was pretty darn cool that you had to peel them out of a real egg shell though! But I admit that I am crazy. So we are going to try it again. This time with chocolate covered marshmallow eggs. They are Hubby's favorite, so I thought I might try to make some this year!

This one comes from Roots and Wings Co:

Okay, this is my favorite part! Look at how they got the marshmallow in the egg shape. You make a mold with flower and an egg:

And then you fill the space with marshmallow:

I love it because it guarantees that they won't get stuck. I am the queen of getting marshmallows stuck. If I would have come up with this tutorial on my own I would have used the plastic Easter eggs that open the wrong way and greased them and then my marshmallows would have gotten stuck. Even though in theory it should have worked, they would have gotten stuck.

Their way, no getting stuck! Brilliant!

If you don't have a marshmallow recipe, you can find their recipe here. And if you have never had a homemade marshmallow I will tell you now, yes, it is worth the effort.

Okay, back to the candy! After the marshmallows set they look like this:

And then you cover them in chocolate like this:

You melt 2 cups of chocolate chips and tablespoon of shortening (thins it out and makes it shine) in the microwave with the classic nuke and stir technique.

And then you eat them. Well, actually they decorated them. But you could just eat them. Or you could decorate them. Or you could let your kids dump a bunch of Easter colored sprinkles on them. Your choice!
