Homemade Cadbury eggs

Okay, this was one of those -- WOW! Let's do that even though we could just pop down to the grocery store and buy them for like a dollar. It's way fun and not terribly hard to do.... and just think now we don't have to wait all year for these!

  • (1/2 cup) light corn syrup 
  • (1/4 cup) butter, room temperature
  • (3 cups) confectioner's powdered sugar (icing sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • yellow food coloring
  • 1 (12 ounce) bag milk chocolate chips -- we used semi-sweet. You could also use tinted white chocolate. That would be sort of awesome.
To make actual hollow eggs with the filling inside, you'll need to acquire some egg molds.  Alternatively, you can form the filling and dip it in the chocolate. We did the dipping method. It just seemed easier... although probably less 'pretty'.

Another idea would be to put these on sticks like lollipops, but I'm thinking that might just ruin the sticky fingered awesomeness...
