Can you handle the excitement and the glamour?

The delicate balance of keeping chocolate from losing its temper (ba dum tss)

**I totally forgot to snap a pic of the filling stage. Maybe next time!**

Two-by-two hands of blue

An inside shot of my test batch (untempered chocolate, boo hiss)

All wrapped up

I'm going to try and get a better inside shot of my next batch. Also, I'm in the process of figuring out how I can ship them (with a ton of help from pandacookie because she's pure awesome), so stay tuned!

I think I love you. Is that weird?

Also, more shots of the filling! I'm really curious how you made it.

I want to give you money. I don't even care if the cream eggs arrive. You win the Nobel Prize for Advanced in Veganism.

Good god, I can almost taste them. And I haven't had a creme egg in YEARS!

I would try to fight my way in the shipping queue, but I've seen the condition mailed things tend to arrive in here, and I would be grieving for months over smashed eggs. But these are so beautiful and delicious looking!

I was so dazed by the beautiful candy that I missed the Firefly reference entirely.

If you need someone to test shipping methods, I'll volunteer! I'd pay for even broken creme eggs.

Oh, those look glorious!
I keep meaning to try and make crème eggs out of Fry's chocolate cream bars, but am sure it would end in a huge mess. Am I remembering wrongly or do those moulds make them identically patterned to the Cadbury crème eggs?
