Easter as you know is a big festival particularly famous in the Christian community and is celebrated all around the world wherever Christian live. So whenever Easter comes the parents usually put some gift or anything that their kids like for example candies, chocolates etc in baskets as well as in eggs. So if they put candies in a basket it is called Easter basket and if they put candies in eggs it is called Easter eggs. So the question is if we put chocolate in Easter eggs so why Easter egg chocolate not melt.
Well the answer is very simple if we reduce the sugar into small pieces and as a result the fat area that covers it will be reduced making it harder for the chocolate to melt. And by following this method we can make our Easter egg more tasty and professional.

Add a few touches for decoration. Fondant flowers, bunnies, chicks and polka dots add some color. Or use striped fondant to roll the egg for stripes.
Leave the egg to harden overnight.
Carefully place your decorated egg on a drying rack and leave it to set overnight. You can also leave it to set for 3-4 hours if you don’t have time to wait until the next day. Be sure not to leave it until the following week—by then, the fondant will begin to re-liquefy.
Decorating Easter eggs with fondant gives them a unique look
Easter eggs decorated with fondant have a unique look. You can make your fondant decorations as simple or as elaborate as you want. Fondant is an icing that tastes like marshmallow and is usually made out of sugar, water, corn syrup, and gelatin. You can buy ready-made fondant in different colors or make your own at home. Both give the eggs a smooth, rounded look that makes them resemble candy more than eggs. If you’re going to decorate a large number of eggs and don’t need them for eating, using fondant is a good choice because it makes the process go faster and results in a polished appearance that’s ideal for gift giving.
How do you decorate chocolate Easter eggs?
To decorate chocolate Easter eggs, you need a few basic items, including colored icing, small candies, and a dab of frosting to stick the candies on.
Decorating Easter eggs is all about layering colors, textures, and patterns to create a visually interesting egg. To get started, all you need are a few basic ingredients: icing, small candies or sprinkles, and just a touch of frosting to stick those decorations on.
You can make your own colored frosting easily by mixing in ¼ teaspoon of liquid food coloring into prepared vanilla frosting until the desired shade is reached. With the frosting complete, holding an egg by its narrow end and dip it into the bowl until it’s coated evenly with a layer of color. Then simply place your favorite treats (like sprinkles!) onto the egg while it’s still wet so they stick.

Another way to decorate a chocolate Easter egg is to add candy pieces on top.
You can decorate an Easter egg with a variety of different candy pieces. You will need:

- Edible glitter or luster dust
You can also wrap strips of ribbon around the egg and secure with a thin coat of frosting or melted chocolate.
A different way to decorate eggs is with ribbon. You can wrap strips of ribbon around the egg and secure with a thin coat of frosting or melted chocolate. Tie a bow at the top for added decoration, or just leave it wrapped. It’s up to you! You can use ribbon with a pattern or one that is a different color than the egg. Narrow ribbon works better for this technique because it doesn’t overwhelm the egg’s shape.
You can also add sprinkles, edible “dots,” or other items that you normally use for cake or cupcake decoration.
When you are decorating the eggs, you can also add sprinkles, edible “dots,” or other items that you normally use for cake or cupcake decoration. If you are using a frosting piping bag to do the writing and/or drawing on your egg, put those items into the bottom of the bag before putting in your frosting and then just pipe out with both of them at once. If not using a piping bag, just dip them onto the egg either individually or by taking some up with a spoon.
Clean up after doing this is as simple as wiping off any excess from around your working area with a paper towel.

How do you seal chocolate together?
- Hot Knife
A heated knife is the easiest way to seal two chocolate pieces together. To do it, all you need to do is heat your knife prior to making your cut with one of these methods: Place in a hot water bath (making sure to dry it off before cutting) or rub over a candle flame. Once the blade is hot, make your cut and press the two ends lightly together until they fuse.
- Chocolate Chips
If you have some chocolate chips on hand, use those as a method for sticking two pieces of chocolate together. Just melt a few chips down in the microwave or over a double boiler and brush onto the edge of one piece of chocolate. Then carefully place the other piece on top and let cool at room temperature until fully set up. Once hardened, you’ll have a strong seal that will keep any items from falling out!
- Melted Chocolate
Melt down some extra chocolate in the microwave or over a double boiler, then pour into molds and place an item that needs sealing into each mold before it hardens up completely. Let set before removing so you get an extra-strong seal around your object!
- Chocolate Glue
This special kind of glue can be purchased online or elsewhere where baking supplies are sold! You can brush this edible glue on any spot where you want to adhere another piece of chocolate onto–just like regular white craft glue only for projects involving food!
how to seal chocolate together
Once you are ready to seal the two pieces of chocolate, here are a few steps to ensure a successful result:
- Melt the chocolate.
- Temper the chocolate [or let it cool if tempering is not an option].
Note: Without tempering, your chocolate will be delicious, but it may not set into that perfect snap you’re looking for. It will also have a more matte finish and require refrigeration to keep it from melting.
If you have chocolate and you have time, you can try these techniques to make it stick.
If you have chocolate and you have time, you can try these techniques to make it stick.
Just like with peanut butter, the best way to seal chocolate is to get it at the right temperature. Put a pot of water on the stove and wait for it to boil. Mix two parts chocolate with one part cocoa butter in a bowl and set it on top of the pot of boiling water. Stir until all the ingredients are melted together. Take your items and dip them in using tongs or something else useful for dipping things into chocolate (like chopsticks). Place your item on waxed paper or parchment paper until cooled. If you’re making truffles, put your items into a fridge until they harden completely before coating them in more chocolate and again, placing them on waxed paper or parchment paper until cooled again.
What do you wrap homemade Easter eggs in?
Option 1: Cellophane and Ribbon
Cellophane is a great option for wrapping homemade Easter eggs, with or without a ribbon. It’s transparent, so the color of your eggs will shine through—and it’s water resistant, which means that if your egg has an alcohol content to it, you don’t have to worry about it spilling through the paper and ruining your handiwork (or getting messy). You can also add labels or gift tags to your wrapped eggs via stickers!
Option 2: Tulle
If you’re looking for something light and airy, tulle is the answer. Tulle is a soft, fine netting that comes in a variety of colors. It’s typically used as decoration for costume making and ballet tutus. You can find it at fabric stores or craft stores.
To wrap your eggs with tulle, start by cutting strips of tulle long enough to wrap around the egg once (about 12-18 inches). Cut the tulle in half so you have two equal strips per egg. Place one strip next to the other on a flat surface and lay an egg over them with its ends centered on each side of the fabric strips. Fold each end over the top of your egg and tie into a knot at its center. For more decorative wrapping, layer multiple strips of tulle on top of each other before knotting them together around your egg’s center point.
Option 3: Socks
This is a great option for any Easter eggs that are meant to be small gifts. Socks make great Easter egg wrappers because they’re so easy to find and they come in so many colors and patterns. Plus, they provide an extra gift on top of the gift you put inside the egg!
To use socks as Easter egg wrappers, all you have to do is fold down one end of the sock and place it over your egg so that about a third of the sock is hanging off (Fig. 1). Then roll up your sock as if you were rolling up a tube sock (Fig. 2). Once your egg is fully rolled, tie the loose end into a knot around the rolled-up part (Fig. 3).
You can find socks at most stores like Walmart or Target, or even at grocery stores or pharmacies in their winter clothing section. You can also use old mismatched socks—those would be perfect for this project!
Option 4: Felt and buttons
- Cut the felt into squares or rectangles that are slightly bigger than your eggs, keeping in mind that it will shrink when you tie it around the egg. You can make as many squares as you have eggs and then glue a button to each one after the gift wrapping is done.
- Center an egg on a piece of fabric and wrap it, tying the ends with a piece of ribbon and adding the button, if desired.
- Voila! The finished product will be a sweet Easter treat for your loved ones.
Option 5: Reusable cellophane bags
Another way to wrap homemade Easter eggs is to use a reusable cellophane bag. These are clear, sturdy bags made of plastic that you can use year after year. They come in various sizes and styles. You can get them in an Easter theme or solid colors at most party stores or online retailers.
- Put the Easter egg in a clear cellophane bag and seal it closed with a decorative ribbon that matches the holiday theme. Add a little card with a message like “Happy Easter from the Smiths!” on the outside of the bag for a personal touch. Use green for St. Patrick’s Day, orange for Halloween, red for Valentine’s Day and any color at all for Christmas.
- A variety of stickers and small toys will make your homemade egg gifts extra fun to open!
