Cadbury Eggs

1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups confectioners' sugar
4 drops yellow food coloring
2 drops red food coloring
1 (12 ounce) bag milk chocolate chips
2 tablespoons shortening

Combine corn syrup, butter, vanilla extract and salt in large bowl.
Beat well with electric mixer. Add confectioners' 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 and red colorings 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 hours.

Combine chocolate chips with shortening in glass bowl. Microwave on
HIGH for 1 minute. 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.
