  • Candy Melts in Various Colors (pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple), melted


  1. Prepare the Mold:
    • Start by coating the inside of an egg-shaped chocolate mold with melted pink candy melts. Ensure to use a thin layer for even coverage.
  2. Chill and Set:
    • Place the mold in the freezer to set the first layer of candy melts, which should take about 5-10 minutes.
  3. Add More Layers:
    • Repeat the process with each color of candy melts, applying a new color layer once the previous one has set. Chill each layer as you go to ensure that the colors do not mix and remain distinct.
  4. Final Setting:
    • Once all the layers have been applied, ensure a final setting period in the freezer to solidify the rainbow egg completely.
  5. Unmold:
    • Carefully remove the rainbow chocolate eggs from the mold.


  • Layer Thickness: Keep each layer thin to ensure that the egg does not become too bulky and difficult to eat.
  • Chilling: Make sure each layer is fully set before adding the next to maintain sharp, distinct color layers.
  • Unmolding: If the eggs are sticking, briefly run the outside of the mold under warm water to help release them without melting the chocolate.


  1. Can I use regular chocolate instead of candy melts?
    • Yes, you can use tempered chocolate as an alternative, though it may not be as colorful as candy melts.
  2. How can I store these chocolate eggs?
    • Store the chocolate eggs in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. If stored in the refrigerator, wrap them in cling film to avoid condensation.
