      Are you looking for them to be hand made, because if you just wanted them to be in the middle of the egg I saw quality street are doing eggs again with the sweets in the middle.
      Ok this maybe obvious but i'm just checking

          Ooooh my mum used to make fabby sweetie filled Easter eggs when I was little We never really 'did' Easter except for these and I have fond memories of both her sweetie filled eggs and a half chocolate egg pilled high with sweeties, wrapped in cellophane and finished with a bow And she claims nowadays that she's not a creative/crafty person

            Yup - I've done it with my Mum before, using acetate moulds. Worked fine for us. But you do need the chocolate to be quite "gloopy", to get a properly thick coat.

            Nowadays, I make wooden ones! Little wooden eggs with miniature easter-y pictures on them, like this :

                You can open up any sealed egg by using a hot knife. Just let a good thick knife sit in a jug of boiling water for a couple of minutes, and it'll melt-and-cut through the seam for you.
