I had grown up with the notion that to create Easter eggs, you had to melt chocolate and brush it in layers into the mould, building it up over time to a descent thickness. Although a great little hobby project for creating a handful of eggs, this just takes far too long if you want to create a large number of them. It also isn't nearly as adventurous as I would like!
To complete this project, you will need...
Chocolate (well duh!)
Cadbury mini eggs (for the dotty effect)
An Easter egg mould
3 Elastic bands
A K'Nex Roto moulding machine (see my instructable of how to build one of these here)
Step 1: Build the machine
The basic principle is simple; the machine spins the mould in all directions, causing the melted material inside to be washed around the outside until it coats it. Magic!
