Its time to get the easter chocolate mould's ready on a tray to start creating your chocolate eggs!
Once your the chocolate mixture is ready, Carefully pour the mixture and share the amount between your moulds.
If you prefer solid easter eggs, let them set in the fridge and if you are preparing your easter eggs well before hand than set chocolate in the fridge. If you are making this recipe and don't have much time, you can always speed up the process by putting the chocolate mould's into the freezer to set.
When they have had plenty of time to set and look ready then start by popping the easter eggs out of the mould.
You can either leave the eggs hollow, fill them up with a nice treat, like a vegan mousse, some nuts or coconut before using some melted chocolate to fix and glue the 2 halves together.
Keep your easter eggs stored in the fridge in warm weather so they don't melt. They can be stored at room temperature if it is quite cool.
