Easter is a great time to get creative with your Easter Eggs! These cupcakes incorporate both an easter egg and a cupcake. Who could ask for more? (Get the silicone mold here.)
Cracked Easter Egg Cupcakes
- 6 Prepared Cupcakes
- 1 Cup Wilton’s White Chocolate Melting Discs
- ½ Cup Each of Wilton’s Pink Purple, Green, Blue, Yellow, Orange Chocolate Melting Discs.
- White Frosting
- Jelly Beans
- Green Sugar
- Green Food Coloring
- Silicone Easter Egg Mold
Melt each color of chocolate (except the white) in small bowls according to package directions. Place each color of chocolate in a snack size baggie and snip the corner off just a tiny bit. Pipe any colors you would like on the dots and zig-zag parts of the mold. Let dry completely.
In a medium bowl, melt the white chocolate melting discs according package directions. Pour about 2-3 tablespoons of chocolate into the mold and spread with a spoon to cover the egg. You do not want a solid egg, so make sure to spread it somewhat thin but not too thin. Let dry completely then carefully pop out of mold.
Color the frosting with 3-4 drops of the green food coloring. Frost each cupcake with a knife or piping bag. Sprinkle the frosting with green sugar.
Take one egg and carefully cut it in half. The easy way is to lay it decorative side down and place the sharp end of knife directly in the middle of egg and push down. The egg should just break in half on its own. Leave some whole if you choose.
Place the two halves on top of the cupcake and fill the middle with jelly beans. If you left a few whole, then stand those on top of each cupcake.
Enjoy your cute little cracked Easter Eggs with candy!
