Giant Kinder Surprise Egg

For many, Kinder Eggs are impossible to find. That’s because they’re actually BANNED in some countries (I’m looking at you United States…). Fear not , because I’m going to show you how to make your very own Kinder Eggs at home, but I’m taking this one to a whole new level…a gigantic level. This is my GIANT Kinder Surprise Egg!

For this recipe, you’ll be working with a lot of melted chocolate. For tips on melting and thinning chocolate, you can check out my video here. These are super easy to customise! You can fill the plastic eggs inside the Kinder Egg with small toys (like dinosaurs, mermaids, or animals), candy, or even money!

Instructions:

  1. Clean and dry your giant egg mold. If you’re using the exact mold that I’m using, you’ll have to remove the handle from the top half of the mold.
  2. Melt your red candy melts, and thin them out with coconut oil/Crisco. Pour them into the bottom half of your giant egg mold. Tilt and twist to make a wavy effect, so that it looks like the bottom half of a Kinder Egg.

  3. Transfer to the fridge for 5 minutes.
  4. Melt down your white candy melts. If there are 2 holes from where your handle once was, cover them with melted white candy melts.
  5. Pour your melted white candy melts into the top half of the mold. Use a spatula to drag the white candy melts up the walls of the mold. Make sure you can’t see any of the plastic coming through.

  6. Place the egg in a small bowl so that it doesn’t roll around. Transfer to the fridge to set.
  7. Take your bottom half of the mold out of the fridge. With a spatula, add white candy melts to the remaining top part of the mold so that it overlaps with the top of the red candy melt waves. Don’t go back and forth over the red candy melts, though, or it will smudge!

  8. Melt down your white chocolate. Pour the white chocolate into the top and bottom half of your giant egg mold. You can either tilt the chocolate so that it coats the egg, or you can use a spatula.
  9. Transfer to the fridge to set.
  10. Melt down your milk chocolate and thin it out with some coconut oil/Crisco. Coat the inside of both halves of the egg with milk chocolate. Don’t let the milk chocolate cover the edge of the white chocolate on both halves. Transfer to the fridge to set.
  11. Once set, gently remove the chocolate halves from the mold.

  12. You can either use an edible image (template included in the “utensils,” section), or make the logo at home with fondant!
  13. If using fondant, roll out your black fondant so that it’s thin. Place the template image on your fondant. Use an exacto knife to cut around the whole word, “surprise.” Also, cut out a letter, “K,” from “Kinder.”

  14. Now, individually cut out the letters in the word, “surprise.” Place each letter on a piece of white fondant. Use an exacto knife to cut around each letter.
  15. Mix some of your food coloring with a bit of clear alcohol (like vodka), or lemon extract. Then, use a pastry brush to paint the colours onto each letter of fondant. Use the template as a reference.
  16. Brush water onto the cut piece of black fondant, and stick each letter of “surprise,” into its spot.
  17. Roll out a piece of red fondant so that it’s thin. Cut out the letters of “inder,” and place it on the fondant. Cut around the letters using an exacto knife.
  18. Place fondant letters in a tupperware container, or cover in plastic wrap until you’re ready to place onto the giant egg.
  19. Fill plastic Easter eggs with toys, candy, money, or anything you want to give for Easter! Place them into the bottom half of your giant egg mold.

  20. Place a hot frying pan over the edges of the bottom half of your mold so that the edges are nice and flat. Use a paper towel to clean any melted chocolate. Then, place the hot frying pan on the top half edge. Wipe up any melted chocolate with a paper towel.

  21. Use two paper towels to hold the top half of the egg. Then, carefully place it onto the bottom half of the egg.

  22. Place your melted white candy melts in a snap seal bag. Cut off a fine corner tip from the bag, and pipe the candy where the two halves meet. Smooth out the chocolate with a wet paper towel.
  23. Brush water onto the back of your fondant letters. Place it on the front of your giant Kinder Egg!
