Tips: If you want your Easter eggs to fit into egg boxes or egg cups, make the icing egg slightly smaller than a real egg, to allow for the chocolate coating on top. It's essential to freeze the icing eggs for at least 3 hours once you've made them so that when you coat them with the chocolate it sets quickly. This stops the eggs losing their shape. To add a decorative touch to the eggs, sprinkle with multi-coloured sprinkles or chopped nuts immediately after coating with the melted chocolate (before it sets).
