chocolate quail eggs

i thought it would be fun to make some chocolate eggs that looked like quail eggs,
i got a small plastic egg mould on ebay and used dark chocolate and white chocolate to make them.
they would be great for Easter.


to make them you will need
2 bars of white chocolate and a small amount of dark or milk chocolate
paint brush
small egg mould
first melt the dark chocolate in a microwave or over a bowl or boiling water, then using a paint brush paint dots and smudges into the mould cavities to resemble a quails egg, leave to harden then melt the white chocolate pour it in to each mould to fill up the eggs.
put in the fridge to harden then tip the egg halves out, i
using some more white chocolate stick the halves together.
two of the eggs i dusted with cocoa powder to make them look a little darker.
to make hollow eggs once the cavities are full, tip the chocolate back out and lay on a flat surface to harden.
