Candy-coated chocolate eggs

When in doubt...add more sprinkles!!
That pretty much sums up the Butterballs philosophy when it comes to baking:)))

After having a blast with our sprinkles-coated cookies, I decided to try them out on our easter eggs as well!

Supplies : candy-coated chocolate eggs, glace icing and of coarse, SPRINKLES!!!

I prepared the glace icing by mixing 100ml of icing sugar with a few tablespoons of water, stirring till it formed a thick paste.

Using a basting brush the Butterballs coated half the egg with icing, before dipping it into the sprinkles.

I found that the best way to get the sprinkles to stick,
 was to coat half the egg first,
then let it dry over-night before dipping and coating the other half.

End result...too cute to eat!!

Naturally, this didn't stop the Butterballs, 
they loved every sprinkle-encrusted bite!!

I will definitely be doing these again.
They will be stunning as an edible centerpiece for our Easter dinner!!
