Easter recipe: White chocolate Jelly Belly surprise balls

Jelly Belly Easter recipe - quick and easy but so much fun

For a family that generally goes large for celebrations, we’ve always had a rather small Easter. Easter bunny makes his faithful appearance – we put hats out the night before for him to leave his chocolate eggs (how does he visit your place?).

I always make a lavish scavenger hunt for the kids to find a few extra eggs after lunch. As the kids have gotten older, the scavenger hunt has taken on new dimensions – this year they will have to solve Find-a-Word and other puzzles, answer Trivia questions, find out information from guests and draw pictures and tell stories in order to get to their prize.

Try this too: Make some Easter bunny bags

The prize needs to be worth all that effort, don’t you think? So when Jelly Belly popped this Easter recipe into my inbox, I just knew it was the going to be the prize at the end of the hunt. You can buy the silicon molds here.

Enjoy getting ready for Easter, however you choose to spend it.

White chocolate Jelly Belly surprise balls

•  1 cup of white chocolate
•  Jelly Belly jelly beans

You will also need:

•  Ball/sphere-shaped silicon mold
•  Small spoon
•  Small pastry brush

Chop the chocolate into small pieces and place in microwave-safe bowl. Microwave chocolate 20-30 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating. 

Using small spoon, line silicone molds with chocolate creating two half-domes. Reserve the remaining chocolate. 

Refrigerate 15 minutes until set. When chocolate sets, remove from molds. 

Fill half of the spheres with 6-8 Jelly Belly jelly beans. 

Microwave the reserved chocolate 10 seconds at a time until melted, stirring after each heating. 

Place one half of the sphere on top of the other. Seal by brushing melted chocolate along the edges where the two halves meet. Gently press halves together. 

Cover and refrigerate to allow the chocolate to set completely.
