I kept seeing the vanilla eggs like this on Pinterest, so I made my own. Of course I had to make CHOCOLATE ones, and I used my favorite chocolate chip cookie dough recipe. I love that there is no baking, just freezing, so easy!! These have been tested by my husband and he approves very much!
I used my cookie scooper and put them on the cookie sheet. Then I shaped them into the eggs….. freeze for at least 2 hours. I melted the chocolate almond bark and dipped the eggs in with a fork, don’t forget to give them a shake to get the extra chocolate off. Once they have set, break the extra chocolate off the edges.
Buy colored candy melts and follow instructions on bag or add the food coloring to the white almond bark and drizzle it on with a fork. (a spoon did not work too well)
If you can’t find Almond Bark at the grocery store you can also use Candiquik, most stores carry one or the other.
