These chocolate dough Easter eggs are absolutely wonderful! They dried so well naturally and they make the cutest little Easter decor on our Easter tree!
A few weeks back we made chocolate play dough. It was so easy to make and it smelled GREAT! We thought of making these eggs and seeing what they turned out once they had dried. Not all play dough dries well, but this one sure did! The color is a lovely chocolaty light brown and they are hard as stone!
Materials for Chocolate Dough Easter Eggs
- Chocolate dough – follow this easy recipe
- An egg cookie cutter – or template.
- Decorations. We decorated our eggs with rice, colored chickpeas, and popcorn kernels.
- String to hang your eggs up if desired.
- Wax paper. (optional) I used this to cover the board when I cut out the eggs – this way I don’t have to transfer them to dry.
How to make your own chocolate eggs:
When your dough is made roll it out about 0.2inch / 0.5cm thick.
Cut out your egg shapes and decorate.
Add a hole at the top before it dries. The easiest way to do this is with a drinking straw.
Let your eggs dry naturally. Ours took a few days. They lighten as they dry.
Once dry you can add the string or twine and hang them up!
