Chill the chocolate
Putting the egg halves in the fridge once the chocolate has set makes it easier to add another layer of warm chocolate. Don’t be tempted to leave the moulds in the fridge any longer than necessary as condensation could cause the chocolate to discolour.
Forget finger mars
If you have hot hands, try wearing rubber gloves when handling the chocolate egg (especially when sticking the two sides together) to avoid finger marks.
