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.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
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
