Looking for the perfect sweet treat to make for Easter? Skip the store-bought chocolate eggs this year and whip up one of these festive recipes in the comfort of your own kitchen. Some of these recipes require a silicone mold (like these simple-yet-impressive eggs, which have a glossy exterior—you can get a quality mold on Amazon for about $10), but some are easy to roll into oval shapes with your hands (like these coconut-covered Homemade Chocolate Easter Eggs and these Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treat Eggs). There's something for everyone in this collection of chocolate eggs for Easter.
