Cadbury Easter Eggs

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.
