Ingredients
  • 12 Yellow Reese's Eggs
  • 2-4 ounces yellow Candy Melts, melted
  • 24 - 1/2 inch candy eyes
  • 12 orange egg sprinkles or candy beaks
  • 12 ounces white Candy Melts, melted
  • optional toasted coconut
Instructions
  1. Unwrap the Yellow Reese's Eggs.
  2. Pipe little feathers using yellow candy melts onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet and immediately attach a Reese's egg.
  3. Add 3 dots of yellow candy melts to the egg and attach two candy eyes and one beak.
  4. Freeze for a minute or so just until the candy feathers harden.
  5. Carefully peel the chicks off the parchment paper.
  6. Pour a spoonful of white candy melts into the smaller half of a plastic egg. Brush the candy coating up the sides of the egg painting the top edge so it's jagged.
  7. Freeze upright for 1 1/2 minutes then remove and let sit at room temperature for a few minutes.
  8. Pour another small spoonful of candy melts into the egg and brush it up the sides adding a second coat.
  9. Freeze for another 2 minutes then remove and gently tug on the candy.
  10. If the candy shell releases easily then pull it out.
  11. If not, freeze for another minute then try again.
  12. Repeat making a total of 12 egg shells.
  13. Set the shells upright and spoon in about a teaspoon of white candy melts.
  14. Let that candy thicken slightly then set a chick upright in the center.
  15. Hold the chick in place until it stands upright on it's own.
  16. Arrange on a serving platter and sprinkle toasted coconut around the chicks, if desired.
