Dozen of eggs

As most of you know I am a chocoholic.
You also know that next weekend is Easter, my favorite holiday in the world.

It is chocolate heaven everywhere :)

Since I want to share my love of chocolate with you guys on this special day of mine, I decided to do a quick giveaway.

To the lucky person I will send a dozen of Cadbury eggs!

Here is what you need to do:

-Let me know your a follower (1 entry)
-Post a picture of a Cadbury egg on your blog and let me know (1 entry)
-Talk about my 'Dozen of eggs' giveaway on your blog and let me know (1 entry)
-Post a video of a Cadbury egg commercial on your blog and let me know (3 entries)

I'll announce the winner on Easter day!

Good luck!

In the meantime here is a recipe to make the eggs at home.

-1/4 cup of corn syrup
-1/4 cup of soft butter
-1 tea spoon of vanilla
-1/4 tea spoon of salt
-3 cups of powder sugar
-4 drops of yellow food coloring
-2 drops of red food coloring
-1 bag of 12oz of chocolate chips
-2 table spoons of vegetable grease

1- mix corn syrup, butter, vanilla and salt in a big bowl with electric mixer until creamy.
2- add powder sugar one cup at a time mixing by hand until creamy
3- take 1/3 of this mix and put it aside and add yellow and red coloring to it
4- covers both bowls and let sit in the fridge for 2 hours.
5- when both mixes are hard create a little ball the size of a marble with colored mix and wrap a part of the white mix around this one(give it the shape of an egg)
6- do this with all the mix and place of a grease cookie sheet in the fridge for 3 to 4 hours.
7- in a big bowl mix chocolate chips and vegetable grease. Microwave for one minute, stir, microwave another minute and stir.
8- use a fork to dip mix into chocolate (hit the fork on side of bowl to remove exceeding chocolate) place eggs on a wax paper and place back in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours.
9- re-dip your eggs a second time after and in the fridge again until eggs are hard.

Enjoy :P:P:P
