I just was looking for some dessert ideas and I’ve come across a very simple and fun way to make Easter eggs.
Easter eggs with chocolate mousse
( This recipe is adapted and translated from ” CuisineAZ” )
You will need:
6 medium size chocolate Easter eggs without filling (Eggs must be big enough to fit into an egg cup)
100 g chocolate ( I used 70% cacao)
30 g butter
1 pinch of salt
1 Break the chocolate into pieces in a bowl. Add butter to the chocolate.
2 Put the bowl on a bain-marie and melt, stirring occasionally.
3 When chocolate and butter are melted and well mixed, take the bowl, of the bain-marie. Allow to cool.
4 Separate egg whites from egg yolks. Add yolks one by one into the cooled melted chocolate , mixing well between each egg.
5 Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until stiff picks. Fold them very gently into chocolate mixture by lifting to avoid breaking the whites.
6 With a small heated knife gently take the tops of chocolate eggs and place them in the egg cups. Fill eggs with chocolate mousse and place in the fridge for at least three hours.
7 Garnish with small sugar eggs just before serving.
