  5. Cut the dough into Easter egg or bunny shapes using 7–8cm shaped cutters. Put the biscuits on the prepared trays and bake for 10–12 min until pale golden. Leave on the trays to cool.
  6. When the biscuits are cool, spoon the melted chocolates into 2 separate piping bags (or use food bags with a corner snipped off) and decorate the biscuits.
