HOW TO MAKE A SWEET FILLED CHOCOLATE COCA-COLA BOTTLE.
All credit for this awesome diy goes to YouTuber DaveHax who blew my mind with his creative spin on the traditional Easter egg. He created a hidden chocolate egg surprise disguised as a Coca-Cola bottle. As soon as I saw his chocolate shaped Coca-Cola bottle I knew I wanted to try and make one myself. It already has over 2 million views so I'm obviously not alone in thinking this diy is seriously impressive.

I had a lot of fun making my chocolate coke bottle but it did take some trial and error to get right. This was actually my 3rd attempt. On my 1st 2 attempts the chocolate cracked as I removed the mould. I think it was too thin so instead of adding the melted chocolate all in one go I recommend building it up in layers.

SUPPLIES: A plastic bottle of Coca-Cola, 400g of chocolate, sweets, a bain-marie and a craft knife.

1, Start by pouring out the coke. Remove the label and remember to keep it somewhere safe. You'll need the lid and label later. Wash the bottle and leave to dry.

2. Melt 200g of the chocolate using a saucepan and a pyrex bowl as a bain-marie.

3. Pour the melted chocolate into the bottle.

I used a disposable piping bag to fill my bottle but you could use a funnel instead.

4. Slowly rotate the bottle until the chocolate has completely coated the inside. Be careful and tilt it slowly when you reach the bottle opening. You don't want any chocolate on the outside rim of the bottle.

5. Lie the bottle down and leave it to set. Rotate the bottle every couple of minutes as the chocolate dries. You want a thick, even coating of chocolate.

6. Once the chocolate has set you need to add a 2nd layer of chocolate.

I melted another 200g of chocolate and repeated the steps above.

7. Once the chocolate has completely set you can remove the plastic bottle.

I found it worked best to use a craft knife and cut an 'I' shape where the label would be that way any marks would be covered by the label.

This next part was tricky and a little dangerous so try not to rush it. Peel away the plastic and run the craft knife underneath as you rotate the bottle. I'd recommend watching the original tutorial (you can find it here) to give you a better idea of how to do it. Peel the plastic away in sections until your chocolate coke bottle is completely free of plastic.

8. Tidy up any marks by gently buffing with some kitchen paper.

9. Re-attach the label you removed earlier and fill with sweets.
