  • These are great for birthday parties and can be filled with anything you choose.
  • In the picture I used Cadbury mini-eggs but I also love the Turkish delight and Caramello varieties too.
  • This is a great recipe to make with the kids. Just be sure to have aprons on because you will end up with chocolate everywhere!
