- Ensure the polished surface of the mould is clean and dry (this helps to produce a shine on the finished egg).
- Divide the chocolate into 2 so you can build 2 layers. Then place two-thirds of the first layer into a bowl and melt over a pan of barely simmering water. Remove from the heat then add the remaining third, stirring vigourously until completely melted.
- Meanwhile place the Whitworths Shots in the base of one half of the egg mould, drizzle a little of the melted chocolate over them to hold them in place.
- Using a brush simply coat the inside of the mould with the melted chocolate. Refrigerateuntil set then repeat for the second layer. If you like a thicker chocolate then simply add another layer, refrigerating between them.
- Once all the layers are in place, refrigerate for a further 45 minutes to fully set - once set they should simply fall out of the moulds.
- To join the halves together simply heat a baking tray in the oven, remove from the oven then place the halves onto the hot surface to melt a little then hold together until set.
