Introduction: Square Easter Eggs (Wombat Eggs)

Picture of Square Easter Eggs (Wombat Eggs)

One of my work colleagues is vegan so instead of paying for vegan easter eggs I decided to make her one from a vegan chocolate bar, I didn't want to mould an egg so that meant square.

As wombats do square poo I figured if they laid eggs the eggs would also be square, so here is my instructable on hollow and solid wombat eggs.

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients

  • baking tray (or 2)
  • chocolate bars
  • baking paper
  • foil wrapping
  • knife
  • scissors

Step 2: First Step

Picture of First Step

Turns out the Lindt chocolate bars I bought for the hollow eggs weren't made up of squares so first they had to be cut.

The solid eggs are regular Cadbury chocolate bars that have little squares.

Step 3: Method Cont.

Put the baking tray into the oven at between 50° and 100°C (120° - 200°F).

Use the heated tray to melt the edges of the squares and join 2 together.

I found it easiest to use 2 trays, one heating and one melting the chocolate.

Let the pieces dry.

Step 4: More Method

Heat the trays again and join the edges, of the hollow eggs.

The solid eggs are heated on the diagonal and joined together, they are now finished.

Step 5: Even More Method

Add tops and bottoms to the hollow eggs

If you want to you can 'clean up' the solid eggs a bit.

Step 6: Wrapping

I bought Easter egg foil from the cake decorating shop and used that.

Then I made these gift tags www.instructables.com/id/Metal-Gift-Tags/

And these instructions as a PDF

I would not have believed that about wombats if you had not included the screen shot. Now I have something to get the kids to research. Anything to get them reading.
