Homemade Cadbury Eggs!

The kind that looks like a "real" egg inside! Perfect treat to make with your kiddos for Easter and one of my personal favs!

1/2 cups light corn syrup
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups powdered sugar
4 drops yellow food coloring
2 drops red food coloring
1 - 12 oz. bag milk chocolate chips
2 Tablespoon shortening

Combine corn syrup, butter, vanilla and salt in large bowl. Beat well with electric mixer.
Add sugar, one cup at a time, mixing by hand after each addition.
Remove about 1/3 of the mix and place in small bowl. Add yellow & red coloring and stir. Cover both mixes and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
When mixes are firm, roll a small ball from the orange filling and wrap around it a portion of the white filling that is twice that size.
Form into the shape of an egg and place onto a cookie sheet that has been brushed with shortening.
Repeat with remaining ingredients. Refrigerate 3-4 hrs.
Combine chocolate chips with shortening in glass bowl.
Microwave on high for 1 minute. Then stir and microwave another minute.
Use a fork to dip each center into the chocolate. Place candy onto wax paper to dry. After 1-2 hours of chilling, dip each candy one more time and chill.
