These are perfect desserts for Easter. They are definitely only meant for once a year as they are so rich and indulgent. The chocolate eggs have a white chocolate and Oreo cookie fudge filling and are made using silicone moulds that readily available and not too expensive.
Detail on the egg shells:
100g white chocolate, broken into pieces
100g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
100g milk chocolate, broken into pieces
50g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
50g milk chocolate, broken into pieces
1 397g can of condensed milk
200g white chocolate
1 pack of original Oreo cookies, bashed or chopped up into small pieces
Melt the white chocolate in the microwave and using a food safe paint brush, load up the brush with chocolate and carefully fill in the detail on the silicone egg moulds. You will either find this therapeutic or get half way through and wonder why on earth you started doing this! Persevere, as the end result really is worth it. Take care to keep inside the lines.
Leave to set completely.
Melt the dark and milk chocolate in the microwave, leave to cool slightly. If it is too warm, it might melt the white chocolate and spoil the detail.
Coat the insides of the egg moulds with the chocolate. I did this by pouring chocolate into each one and tilting and turning the mould until the insides had a good coating. Leave to set completely.
While the shells are setting, make the filling.
Add the condensed milk to a heavy based pan along with the white chocolate and heat until melted, stirring all the time.
When everything is liquid, take off the heat and stir in the cookie rubble. Leave to cool, but not set completely. You need it to be cool enough to not melt the chocolate egg shells.
When the filling is cool, fill the waiting shells and gently press down with the back of a spoon to flatten the filling before adding the rest of the chocolate.
Melt the remaining chocolate and pour onto the waiting eggs, use an offset spatula or palette knife to scrape off the excess and give you a nice flat finish.
Leave to set completely – at least 2 hours and your eggs will be complete.
This recipe would work just as well with the smaller silicone egg moulds you can get as they are super rich.
If I made these again, I would work harder at tempering the chocolate to get a good shine on them, but I don’t think my family noticed the lack of shine when tucking in!
