These Easter chocolate chicks are simply made from creme eggs and chocolate buttons – don’t they look great?! They’re a popular treat and lots of fun for the family to make together, so they make a great family-friendly Easter activity.
My chicks have been super popular every Easter since 2012, so I thought I’d make a video to show you just how easy they really are! Below the video you’ll find the ingredients list and some instructions – plus you can print the recipe card to save for later.
Easy creme egg Easter chicks – video tutorial
And here’s the full details on how to make them.
Easy creme egg Easter chicks
- 5 creme eggs
- 1 pack of orange flavour chocolate buttons from the baking aisle
- 6 squares of cooking chocolate
- 2 packs of white chocolate buttons
- 2 packs of milk chocolate buttons
- 1 black writing icing pen
- Melt the cooking chocolate and get a clean teaspoon ready
- Turn a clean, empty mug or bowl upside down (this bit's important!)
- Place two orange buttons side by side on the upturned mug/bowl
- Using the teaspoon, put a small blob of melted chocolate behind the two buttons, where they meet
- Stick a creme egg on top, pointy end up
- Using the melted chocolate as glue stick on: Two milk chocolate buttons (for the wings), one milk chocolate button (for the tail at the back), two white chocolate buttons (for the eyes), one orange button (cut into a triangle, for the beak), one orange button (cut into a crescent, for the crest)
- Draw the pupils on with the icing pen, then dab with a wet finger to flatten
- Allow the chicks to set and then free them from the bowl by turning it right way up again and filling with a little boiled water - carefully pull on the chick after a few seconds and it should come off whole.
If you’re feeling extra creative, you can use the offcuts to make different types of crest or use different coloured writing icing pens for extra detail.
