Reminders from Kinder: invent your own confectionery!
For 3 large chocolate eggs you will need:
200 g milk chocolate
180 g white chocolate
As for the material, you will need an egg-shaped silicone mold.
Start by melting the milk chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds with a spatula. Then let it cool for 15 minutes: it should be at room temperature.
Pour the equivalent of 2 tablespoons of milk chocolate into silicone molds. Smooth the entire surface of the prints well, reaching the edge with a brush. Tap the mold to remove air bubbles and thus avoid bubbles in the end result. Spread the chocolate, making movements for 5 minutes.
Let the mold rest on a wire rack for 15 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden. Turn the mold over, then use a knife to smooth the edges of each indentation. Return the pan to the wire rack and refrigerate for 30-40 minutes. Meanwhile, melt the white chocolate in the microwave and let it cool to room temperature.
Take the egg mold out of the fridge and add 2 small tablespoons to each egg shell. Still using the brush, spread the chocolate evenly over the walls. Then put the mold on the wire rack and leave in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Carefully remove the shells and place them on the hot plate to bring them together. Surprises can be placed in the eggs before they are sealed. You can repeat the operation as many times as you want to have multiple eggs to taste!
