  • 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!

  1. oh my gosh what a great and creative way to make these adorable cracked easter egg cupcakes- my kids would go crazy over them! YUM!

  2. That looks like a fun idea. I’m thinking that this might happen for Easter this year just because I want to do something different for a Easter desert.

  3. LOVEEEEEE! I wonder what is going to happen when my son gets older and I need to be the mom to bring in the cupcakes for the Easter School Party. Am I going to buy store made ones or make them myself?! ha! WE SHALL SEE! LOL!

  4. Those cracked eggs are cute Easter desserts. I made a similar idea with rice krispie treats. M&Ms fell out and the kids thought it was awesome.

  5. What a great Easter themed cupcake idea. I love that they are so colourful and easy to make. I may even have the right size moulds in my cupboard to make the eggs!!!

  6. Oh I absolutely loooove these! They are so darn adorable. I would have never thought of putting cracked Easter eggs on top but it’s so brilliant!

  7. What a simple yet super cute idea! I’m not one who can resist cupcakes, so these are calling my name!

  8. 5 stars
    This is so cute! I like this easter egg cupcake idea. We do not have easter egg hunting so I think I will do this instead.
