Pineapple Easter Eggs

Recipe by  

"If pineapple isn't your favorite candy flavoring you could substitute coconut, maple-flavoring or even maraschino cherries and juice for the pineapple and pineapple juice. Decorate the eggs after the chocolate has cooled if you'd like."

Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine sugar, margarine and crushed pineapple. Stir in a small amount of pineapple juice if the mixture needs more moisture. When the mixture is well blended shape it into two 1/2 pound eggs (or a bunch of smaller eggs). Freeze for one hour.
  2. While the eggs are freezing, cut semi-sweet chocolate into small pieces and place in top of double boiler with shortening. Melt over medium heat, stirring frequently until smooth. Stick a long-tined fork in top of each pineapple egg, dip it in melted chocolate to cover then drain on waxed paper.

This recipe didn't work at all. The pineapple mixture was very soupy, therefore couldn't be shaped into anything. I even tried freezing it first but that didn't help at all. I had to thorw it away. Sorry, but this just doesn't work.

What did I do wrong? Very runny, and couldn't be shaped, even after adding more powdered sugar.

At first I thought this would be a great easy recipe. But the pinapple was runny and wouldn't freeze right. I ended up pouring the pinapple mix into the chocolate.Which didnt work as good as I thought it would be...all in all not a very good recipe. Xb
