Making Mealtime Meaningful: Discover how we're giving back with the 12T Cares program →

Some people take the making and design of Easter eggs to a whole new level. More than likely, you’ve seen some beautiful creations in the past, including some that are made from string. They are a beautiful addition to any Easter basket, but there is one problem: You can’t eat them!

What if you could make Easter eggs that were that beautiful and were also edible? As it turns out, it’s not only possible, it’s an Easter egg project that you will love doing with the family. You can make these eggs and they are absolutely beautiful, but they won’t last forever, because they are also delicious!

After you make these eggs, you can put them in the basket empty or you can fill them with candy. In either case, it’s a sweet treat that you will enjoy creating.

The process for making these eggs is relatively simple and it is outlined in the video below. We also have written instructions for your reference:

Step-By-Step Directions:

1. Melt candy melts and fill a Ziploc bag. Cut a small corner of the bag off so you can squeeze out the melted candy.

2. Take half of an egg mold and squeeze the candy melt in a lacy shape. Overlap the lines but be careful you don’t put too much that it blends together and becomes solid. Make sure that you line the egg mold at the top with a layer of candy. Repeat on the other side.

3. Put the shells in the freezer for 15 minutes and then remove the candy lace gently from inside of them.

4. You can put the delicate lace together and add them to the basket or fill them with candy first. Glue them together with a little bit of melted candy at the seams.
