  • Candy melts in various colors: pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple (alternatively, white chocolate can be used and tinted with food coloring)


  1. Mold Preparation: Begin by placing a small dollop of melted pink candy melt into the center of each egg-shaped mold. This is the first layer of your rainbow, so make sure it’s even and smooth.
  2. Set the Base: After smoothing the candy melt, place the mold in the freezer for about 5-10 minutes. This initial chill sets the stage for the subsequent layers, ensuring that each color will stand out.
  3. Layer Colors: Continue with each color of candy melts, applying one layer at a time. After adding a new color, return the mold to the freezer to set. This process is crucial for keeping the layers distinct and vibrant. Repeat this step with orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple candy melts, ensuring each layer is thin and even.
  4. Final Freeze: Once all the layers are added, give the molds a final freeze, ensuring they are completely solid. This might take about 20 minutes.
  5. Unmold: Carefully remove the chocolate eggs from the molds. If the chocolates are fully set, they should come out easily without distorting the beautiful layers of color.

Preparation Time

  • Total prep time is approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes, mostly due to the freezing required between each layer.


  • This recipe yields about 4 servings, depending on the size of the molds.

Tips for Perfect Rainbow Chocolate Eggs

  • Utensil Selection: Use a clean, small spoon or a piping bag for each color to ensure that each layer is neat and tidy.
  • Patience with Setting: Ensure each layer is fully set before adding the next. This patience pays off with clear, distinct colors that make each egg a work of art.
  • Temperature Check: Make sure the candy melts are not too hot when applied, as high temperatures can melt the underlying layers and blur the colors.

These Rainbow Chocolate Eggs are more than just treats; they’re a creative expression that’s fun to make and even more fun to eat. Whether you’re setting them out at a festive gathering or tucking them into Easter baskets, they’re bound to be a hit. Enjoy the process of making these gorgeous eggs, and watch as they bring smiles to everyone’s faces!
