Chocolate-Covered Marshmallow Eggs

When I think of Easter, I think of eggs. From egg hunts to dyeing eggs, there are so many fun activities. These marshmallow Easter eggs are a fun and chocolatey treat that is perfect for sharing. The marshmallow fluff is a great shortcut to making the marshmallow creme egg-shaped marshmallows without using a from-scratch recipe. It’s super easy for beginners and for your kiddos to help with, too. Plus, they’re no-bake!

You can serve these marshmallow eggs as a quick Easter dessert or as a favor in your little one’s Easter baskets.

Recipe Ingredients

With just 6 ingredients, you will have rich and fluffy marshmallows surrounded by tasty chocolate! The exact measurements can be found below.

  • Marshmallow fluff: Use your favorite brand of fluff as the base for these marshmallow Easter Eggs. 
  • Butter: Be sure to leave the butter out at room temperature for at least 30 minutes to soften. I use salted butter because it balances the sweetness of the eggs but unsalted butter can be used instead.
  • Vanilla: I use pure vanilla for authentic flavor.
  • Powdered sugar: The powdered sugar acts as a binder for the marshmallow fluff to keep it from being too loose when combined with the butter. 
  • Candy melts: These are for decorating. I use yellow, pink, and blue.
  • Chocolate almond bark: Do not use chocolate chips because they will not work in the silicone mold.
  • Silicone Egg Mold Tray

How to Make Homemade Marshmallow Eggs

These are the super easy instructions to make your own tasty Easter marshmallow egg treats. For more details, see the recipe card below.

  • Make marshmallow filling. Combine fluff, butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla into the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix thoroughly. 
  • Melt the colored candy melts. Add the candy melts to 3 separate microwave-safe bowls and heat in 30-second intervals until smooth.
  • Drizzle into molds. Use a spoon to carefully drizzle a little bit of each color into the molds
  • Melt half the bark. Add half of the almond bark into a larger microwave-safe bowl and heat in 30-second intervals until smooth.
  • Spoon into molds. Divide into the individual egg-shaped molds.
  • Let it set. Place the silicone mold upside down on a rack to let excess chocolate drip out. It should set in about 10 minutes. 
  • Add marshmallow mixture. Scoop the marshmallow mixture into each of the egg molds evenly.

  • Melt remaining bark. Add the remaining bark to the bowl and melt in the microwave. 
  • Add to molds. Top the marshmallows with the melted chocolate. 
  • Place in the refrigerator. Put the silicone mold in the refrigerator to set for about 2 hours. 
  • Serve. Remove the chocolate-covered marshmallow eggs from the silicone molds and enjoy.

Storage Directions

Place any leftover marshmallow eggs into an airtight container layered with parchment paper. They will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Do not freeze!

Tips and Variations

  • Swap for candy melts: Instead of almond bark, you may use candy melts if you prefer. I suggest using white so you can see the pastel colors best. 
  • Add Sprinkles: Place pastel sprinkles into the bottom of the silicone egg molds for even more festive flair.
  • Colored marshmallow: Add a little bit of food coloring to color the marshmallows if you wish.
  • Let them set. Waiting is hard but make sure you leave the marshmallow Easter eggs for about 2 hours so they fully set before you eat them.
