Reuben has an obsession with Kinder Surprise Eggs. If he sees one, he has to have it!! I get the impression from watching other kids and chatting to other Mums that this is a pretty standard reaction!
I came across this awesome idea when I was trawling through one of my favourite websites babyccinokids, who in turn came across it on this amazing foodie blog La Super Superette. The blog is in french, but if you see something on there you like and want to try out, it is super easy to just put it through google translate.
That is where I saw The Kinder Egg recipe. I had such a blast doing this, although I have to say my egg looks like a mis-shapen cousin in comparison to the La Super Superette version!
- 50g white chocolate
- 50g milk chocolate
- 2 eggs wrapped in foil, or cling film.
Melt the white chocolate, either in the microwave or over a double boiler.
Take the first egg and dip one half of it into the chocolate. I find it easier if you have greased the foil, or if you use cling film. Experience has taught me I’m not so good with foil!
Repeat this with the other egg.
Let them both set in the fridge for 2-3 minutes.
Once the white chocolate halves have set , melt the milk chocolate and repeat the process.
Take the eggs out of the fridge, peel the chocolate off the eggs and join the two halves together with a little bit of melted chocolate (not forgetting the gift inside!)
Hopefully you will have something that looks like this…
I hope you make your own kinder egg, its so easy! Enjoy it and if you do it together expect lots of chocolate to go missing…
