    This sounds delicious, but what is "plain chocolate"??! There is nothing called plain chocolate...  -  04 Apr 2011

    Hi klawrenc, plain chocolate is the same as dark chocolate or anything with more than 60% cocoa solids.  -  04 Apr 2011

    FOR THOSE HAVING TROUBLE "SHAPING" THESE INTO EGG SHAPES, SIMPLY USE THE PLASTIC FILLABLE EASTER EGGS. OPEN THEM UP, PRESS MIX DOWN INSIDE, PLACE THEM ON A COOKIE SHEET IN THE FREEZER FOR A FEW MINUTES. TURN THEM OVER, TAP ON THE COOKIE SHEET, AND THEY FALL RIGHT OUT BEAUTIFULLY SHAPED LIKE HALF AN EGG...!!!!  -  23 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
