Make your Own Kinder Egg

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 sawΒ 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!

Ingredients:

  • 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…

    These look brilliant, Monkey loves Kinder eggs and this is such a great idea as you can make the toy relevant to what they are really into at the moment, may well be giving this a go and pinning πŸ™‚ thank you x

    OMG this is a great idea! My son loves kinder eggs but I hate buying them because there is basically no chocolate and they aren’t cheap any more either. Plus you get really rubbish toys that fall apart in 2 minutes! I am going to make some on these for him, thanks for sharing!

    • Harriet March 23, 2016 / 11:48 pm

      Thank you for your lovely comment – tweet me if you give it a go @tobyandroo x

    Awesome idea, makes a nice change from the usual tat you get in a kinder egg doesn’t it πŸ˜‰

      Thanks Amy – absolutely! The boys love them but the toys are gone within seconds! H x

    OMG this looks so much better than a Kinder Egg because it is bigger and it looks so well made. When are you taking your new orders lol!

    • Harriet March 22, 2016 / 11:03 am

      Haha! I’ve afraid the orders will have to wait until the boys stop licking, poking and devouring everyone I make haha!! H x

    This is a great idea. I quite often make my own milk chocolate or dark chocolate shells. I’m a bit rubbish at melting white chocolate so not sure I’d manage this one.

    • Harriet March 22, 2016 / 11:03 am

      Oh you would! Give it a go Emma πŸ™‚ H x

    Kinder eggs are my absolute favourites and these homemade ones look delicious!!! I’m meant to be on a diet but think it would be rude not to give this recipe ago – It is Easter this week after all πŸ˜‰ xxx

    • Harriet March 22, 2016 / 11:11 am

      Haha Vikki you don’t need to diet! you need to join me in my failing diet and rock out the kinder love! H x

    What a great idea, I have to admit even though I’m not a kid I still love a kinder egg. They look so good esp as you can put your own treat inside x

      It’s so fun isn’t it! H x

    There’s loads of egg moulds about at the minute…. lakeland definatly have them but if your passing a pound shop have a look in there ? just pour the chocolate in and tilt it to coat all the moulds and this way it makes 3 at once…. hope this helps link to lakeland http://www.lakeland.co.uk/18577/Easter-Egg-Mould ?

    • Harriet March 21, 2016 / 10:05 am

      Thanks Cale – I’ve seen them, we actually have one but I thought it would be really fun to try it out this way! H x

    Oh wow! How yummy does this look! What a good idea. And it looks pretty simple and quick to do – always a winner. Will definitely have to check out that site. Thanks for sharing! #Love2Blog

    This is a fab idea and certainly MUCH cheaper than buying Kinder eggs all the time. half the time they only want the kinder eggs for the prize inside.

    • Harriet March 18, 2016 / 4:10 pm

      Thanks, it is so easy – give it a go! H x
