In advance: Make candy base. Set smallest
round cutter from set on Non-Stick Cookie
Sheet. Fill 1/8 in. deep with melted white
candy. Tap to settle; chill until firm. Make
one per treat.
Also in advance: Tint 1/2 oz. coconut green
for each treat using icing color.
To decorate eggs, use candy color to tint
portions of white candy violet (use violet
with some pink) yellow, pink and blue. Use
painting or piping method to fill in
stripes and large center dot details in pan
cavities. Chill until set.
Fill eggs with melted
white candy. Chill for eight to 10 minutes
or until a 1/8 to 1/4 in. thick outer shell forms.
Pour out excess candy; chill completely then
unmold. Use knife to clear any excess candy.
Use warm surface to smooth and melt
edges; attach halves. Let set. Slide wide end
over warm surface to flatten slightly; attach
to candy base.
Attach confetti sprinkles with
dots of melted candy. Add tinted coconut to
baking cup. Position egg.
Adding color details to candies makes them more realistic and much more fun! For large areas of color, it's best to paint the melted candy right in the mold before the whole candy is molded using a decorator brush. Or, for very small details like vines, mouths and messages, melted candy should be piped onto molded candies using a parchment bag with a small hole cut in the tip.
