April Fools Deviled Eggs makes the perfect Easter treat, especially this year since Easter actually falls on April Fools Day. But don’t let these cute little goodies fool ya! They’re actually made entirely of chocolate! This cute little homemade confection is the sweetest way to trick your guests this year. I love making this deviled egg lookalike candy for my family at Easter time. Everyone loves how realistic they look. They’re sure to trick even your sneakiest prankster! Serve them on an egg plate or package them up for Easter baskets. Either way, they’ll be the talk of your Easter festivities.
Here’s all you’ll need: Rice Krispies, white chocolate wafers (or candy melts), yellow wafers (or candy melts), and red sugar sprinkles.
First melt the white chocolate wafers or candy melts in a microwave safe dish for 30 seconds. Stir up the chocolate and microwave for an addition 30 seconds. Continue this cycle until the chocolate is smooth and creamy and completely melted. Pour the white chocolate into a candy egg mold. I got all of my chocolate making supplies from Candy Makers, a local chocolate making supply store here in Buffalo. You can also find these things at your local craft store, like Michaels or Hobby Lobby.
Next place the mold in the refrigerator and allow the chocolate to set. The times will vary depending on how cold your fridge is and the depth and size of the candy mold. This took about 30 minutes for me. Once the chocolate is set, flip the mold over and pop the chocolate eggs out. If you find that any are stuck, rub the outside of the chocolate mold with the palm of your hand. The heat from your hand will help to loosen them out.
Now we’re going to repeat the melting process but with the yellow chocolate. Melt in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between. Once it’s completely melted, toss in some Rice Krispies and then toss to coat. You want to add enough cereal to give you a thick and clumpy consistency that mimics deviled egg filling.
Layer the Rice Krispie mixture on top of the egg base. You can see how we’re starting to get that realistic looking deviled egg look! Which do you prefer chocolate deviled eggs or real deviled eggs? I gotta go with the chocolate version!
Before the yellow chocolate has a chance to set, sprinkle with red sugar sprinkles to mimic paprika. Allow the candy to completely harden. You can toss them back in fridge to speed this up a bit if you like. If you really want this to take this trick to the next level, store April Fools Deviled Eggs in the refrigerator on an egg platter and cover with clear plastic wrap, just like you would for actual deviled eggs. Remove from the fridge when you’re ready to serve appetizers and SAY NOTHING!!! Ta-da!! That’s how you pull off the sweetest April Fools trick this Easter!
