How to Make Chocolate Confetti Eggs
Making Confetti Eggs also known as Cascarones can seem daunting given that it takes a bit of craftsmanship and then they get smashed . . . and they are gone!
Fortunately, my site is called I Really Love Chocolate so my twist on Cascarones includes chocolate of course.
And when they are completed they can get smashed into your mouth (gently of course).
This is super easy to do!
Grab a few hollow chocolate eggs at the store. I bought mine in 2-packs from the Dollar Store but had to wait until 2 weeks after Valentine’s Day for them to be available. I was waiting and watching.
You could always get them here if its not Spring Time when you are making these chocolate eggs.
When purchasing from the store, carefully handle them and inspect them. This is very thin chocolate and typically milk chocolate, more sugar, more malleable. I don’t want you to end up with broken eggs. Your best bet is to grab a few more than you need because by the time I got home, mine suddenly had a few cracks. And then, they are worthless for Confetti Egg making and you have to put them in your chocolate tupperware container.
Look at how smooth and beautiful these are.
Yes, I am obsessed with chocolate. It’s lovely.
They came wrapped like this.
Carefully unwrap them. And if you can place in a bowl or egg crate to keep them from rolling around and off of your counter.
To fill the eggs, you’ll need something pretty.
I chose a pastel variety of Jelly Bellys from our local candy shop in McKinney, TX. Its called Mom and Popcorn and its that lovely old fashioned kind of candy store with really amicable shop owners.
I found a mix but then added a few more of the light blue and yellow to give it more dimension.
Such a pretty palette!
Using my Shun tomato knife, I gently sawed off the top half of the egg and then poured in my jelly bean mix and topped it off with sprinkles.
I used a Dove Chocolate dark chocolate disk (melted) to “glue” the lid on.
Once you have all the ingredients on hand, these only take about 5 minutes to make. Let your kids have fun with the colors and making art in the kitchen.
Love & Chocolate,
P.S. Start the Easter weekend off with these pancakes
By now, you may want to be your own Chocolatier like I am.
