I am always looking for cute holiday goody ideas. All my friends anxiously await to see what I will come up with next. I have made favors for baby and wedding showers, cookie exchange parties, and I have even made some for holiday bazaars. I love creative cooking especially baking and candy making. The mold for this recipe was purchased from Sweet Mercantile cake/candy supply company in Rancho Cucamonga, California.

These are such cute Easter candies! It's a joy to eat them... and to watch the reaction of people who think they are really eggs!

How To Make deviled egg easter candy

  • 1
    Melt white Wilton Melts and spoon into egg-shaped mold.
  • 2
    Melt a few yellow melts and add rice krispies for texture. This will be the "yolk".
  • 3
    Put a dollop of yellow yolk mixture onto white egg to resemble a deviled egg.
  • 4
    Sprinkle a tiny bit of red Christmas sugar on yellow to look like paprika.
  • 5
    I serve them in a deviled eggs dish or put a tiny bit of Easter grass into a paper cupcake holder.
  • 6
    Immediately put in the freezer for about 5 to 10 minutes to harden. Many times I have used white almond bark (from Walmart) and it works just fine. Just a hint of yellow food coloring.
