Soften the butter by microwaving it for around 30 seconds to a minute, depending on wattage variations.
Separate the yolk from the egg white by cracking the egg in half over a cup/bowl and tipping the yolk between each side of the shell, letting the white fall into the container below but keeping the yolk in the shell.
so easy to make and so delicious! i made them for a jubilee party and so only used red and blue smarties this time, but i can't wait to try them again normally! great recipe - 05 Jun 2012
