Rated 5 out of 5 by msfestus from This project, while time consuming, is well worth the effort. The hardest part was the "painting" the lines inside the mold-be sure to use a smaller brush to make it easier. Also when after the initial lines are colored, be sure not to over-brush the white, as that can cause the colors to re-melt and run. I was worried about unmolding them, but that was sooo easy-they just came right out! I used a flat griddle pan on the stove to melt the edges for a smooth seam. Do not over heat the pan-just barely warm will do. You only have to run the edge of the egg a few seconds to even the edge. Instead of jelly beans, I filled my eggs with tiny marshmallow chicks (not "Peeps"-they are too big). Gluing the halves together was a cinch-just put melted candy melts in a small plastice bag, cut a small opening in one corner, and trace around the edge of the egg half then press together. These were so much fun to do, and the grandchildren were surprised to find the chick inside! This is defnitely a new Easter tradition.
