Chocolate Eggs filled with Marshmallow & Nutella

This may be one of the best things I have ever made.  I grew up on chocolate covered marshmallow eggs for Easter and this year I wanted to try my own rendition.  I upgraded the Russell Stover's chocolate to Godiva chocolate and added Nutella to the melted marshmallow filling.

I bought this Wilton mini-egg silicon mold last year on Easter Clearance.  It is the perfect weight for baking or candy making.  I've used it for both and love it.  I pulled out all of the Easter-ish colored candy melts and melted each color in a small bowl to drizzle across the mold.
After each color was drizzled and set, I added the Limited Edition Marshmallow Candy Melts that I hope will become permanent edition candy melts.  The melts are bright white and the flavor is so much better than the vanilla.  Let the drizzles set.
Brush the candy melt up the sides of the mold to create a hallow center for filling:
Melt Godiva (my favorite, but you can use any chocolate) for the other six eggs:
I was going to just add melted marshmallows as the filling, until I spotted the Nutella next to the marshmallows in the pantry.
Pipe the Nutella into one of the half shells:
Spoon cooled melted marshmallows into the other half shell:
Melt the edges of the chocolate egg shells on a warm skillet.  This will even the edges and adhere the two sides:
You can also fill the shells with candy:
Aren't they pretty?
For a few of the eggs, I let the melted marshmallows set up again to make it easier to add mostly marshmallow and then piped the Nutella over the marshmallow.
Adhere the top shell:
It is crazy delicious.
Our eggs are a mix of just marshmallow, marshmallow/Nutella, and M&Ms.  Next time I'll add a coconut filling to the mix.
With snow on the way, we'll be Easter baking throughout the weekend.  Stay tuned for more bunny treats.  For more Easter treats, click here.
