Entertaining can be very stressful, but with quick and inexpensive tips you can transform your Easter dinner or brunch into a fancy affair that guests will be talking about for weeks. Entertaining expert Heather Christo shows how to make solid chocolate Easter eggs for under $5.
1 egg mold (available at any craft store for under $2)
1 lb of white chocolate chips with food coloring, melted
Edible luster dust
"You just melt a bag of white chocolate chips with coloring in it or dark chocolate and pour it into an egg mold," says Heather Christo, entertaining expert and chef.
Put the egg mold into the freezer for 20 minutes and then pop the chocolate halves out of the mold.
Take some of the extra melted chocolate and use it to glue the two halves of the egg together.
Let the glue dry and then paint the eggs with edible luster dust.
