Happy Healthy Holidays!
These delicious cream filled eggs taste just like a very famous store bought one. They are easy to make and most kids and adults love them - and they look wonderful in an Easter Basket! When sliced these eggs will have a white cream filling with a yellow filling that appears to be the yolk.
1 cup soft butter
2 teaspoons salt
4 teaspoons vanilla
1 can of condensed milk
10 cups icing sugar
1 teaspoon yellow food coloring
1 pound of semi-sweet chocolate (16 ounces)
Beat butter, salt and vanilla until fluffy. Add milk, beat in sugar. Blend until stiff. Dust with icing sugar. Knead until smooth.
Set aside more then 2/3 of mixture. To the remaining mixture add yellow food coloring. Blend in well. Divde yellow and white into 16 or 24 pieces. Shape yellow into ball, mold white around yellow to form an egg shape. Dry at room temperature on paper towels for 24 hours.
Melt chocolate in double boiler or in microwave until smooth. Dip eggs in chocolate. (parafin wax may be added and melted with chocolate to prevent chocolate from melting in your hands). Once dipped, cool at room temperature. Refrigerate after cool.
