Happy Easter & a fun recipe

I hope you all have a great Easter weekend with your friends, family or whoever you want to spend time with (maybe just yourself!).  In honor of this weekend, I’m reposting the Cadbury Creme Eggs recipe my father-in-law sent me awhile back amongst many other fun recipes.  Enjoy!  (And let me know if you make these & they work out.)

Cadbury Eggs
1/2 cups light corn syrup
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 teas. vanilla
1/4 teas. salt
3 cups powdered sugar
4 drops yellow food coloring
2 drops red food coloring
1 − 12 oz. bag milk chocolate chips
2 Tbls. shortening
Combine corn syrup, butter, vanilla and salt in large bowl. Beat well with
electric mixer. Add sugar, one cup at a time, mixing by hand after each
addition. Remove about 1/3 of the mix and place in small bowl. Add yellow &
red coloring and stir. Cover both mixes and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
When mixes are firm, roll a small ball from the orange filling and wrap
around it a portion of the white filling that is twice that size. Form into
the shape of an egg and place onto a cookie sheet that has been brushed with
shortening. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Refrigerate 3−4 hrs. Combine
chocolate chips with shortening in glass bowl. Microwave on high for 1
minute. Then stir and microwave another minute. Use a fork to dip each
center into the chocolate. Place candy onto wax paper to dry. After 1−2
hours of chilling, dip each candy one more time and chill.
