    Filled chocolate eggs are a cinch. I don't know how to make hollow ones.

    For filled chocolate eggs you first make a fondant, shape it into an egg and then dip in chocolte coating.

    I've made these coconut ones since about 1970 because I love coconut:

    CHOCOLATE COCONUT EASTER EGGS


    1 (15 oz.) Can sweetened condensed milk

    ½ cup butter

    2 lbs. Powdered sugar

    2 (8 oz.) packages (4c.) Coconut

    2 (12 oz.) Packages semi-sweet chocolate morsels

    1/8 pound (½ bar) household paraffin(available for canning)


    Mix condensed milk, butter, powdered sugar, and coconut together. Mixture will be very stiff. Cover and chill several hours or overnight.

    Shape into eggs (or small balls for bonbons).

    Melt chocolate and paraffin over boiling water.

    Place each coconut ball on a fondue fork or cocktail pick and dip in chocolate mixture to coat. Use a toothpick to help slide coated eggs off the fork onto waxed paper. If chocolate refuses to cling to candy, cool slightly.

    Store candies in a cool place or freeze.


    There are other fondant recipes for bon bons without coconut.

    I haven't tried these yet:

    PEANUT BUTTER BON BONS
    from COOKS.COM


    1 1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
    3/4 c. butter, softened
    1 tbsp. vanilla
    1 can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
    1 tsp. salt
    2 (1 lb. each) boxes confectioners' sugar
    6 (1 oz. each) squares chocolate, melted -or-
    white chocolate candy coating, melted

    In a large bowl, beat peanut butter, butter, vanilla and salt until fluffy. Gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk and then confectioners' sugar until smooth. Shape into 1-inch balls and place on a baking sheet. Chill until firm. Dip bon bons in melted chocolate using a toothpick. Place on baking sheets lined with wax paper and chill until firm. Store in refrigerator or room temperature.
    Makes 1 1/2 dozen.

    No, I've never taken pics, but I'll tell you cake decorators can make them pretty with little flowers on top. I'm no good at cake decorating.
