Sweet treats are a big part of the Easter fun. Making your own treats can be even MORE fun than eating them! Today we’re going to show you how to make hollow chocolate eggs with balloons. We used our finished candy eggs to hold pudding for a pretty Easter dessert, but you can fill yours with whatever you choose, whether it’s berries and cream, mini candies, ice cream – or just eat them “as is”.

You can make your eggs as big or as small as you want depending on how much air you put in your balloons. You can also change the colors by using different colors or flavors of melting chocolate. They make candy melts in almost any color imaginable!
