Introduction: 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
- baking tray (or 2)
- chocolate bars
- baking paper
- foil wrapping
Step 2: 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
