A simple chocolate egg can turn into a real dessert capable of surprising everyone. that's how
For years now, at Easter I always prepare a dessert that leaves everyone speechless: thestuffed chocolate egg. I enjoy a always create different fillings using known and lesser known recipes that adults and children like. So I decided to share my ideas with you. But before talking about the fillings I would like to explain the most important passages for the preparation of the egg.
Which egg to choose
Let's start from the base, that is, the egg.
An egg medium-small 150 gr may contain a filling for 3-4 people. Choose it of the size you prefer based on the number of guests at the table.
For what concern kind of chocolateinstead, each recipe has its ideal pairing with dark, milk or white chocolate. But if you have an egg rich in almonds and hazelnuts at home, use it as well, on the contrary, it will make even more scene!
How to serve the egg
For create a solid egg base once divided in half, melt the chocolate and put a spoon in the center of the serving dish. Then, place the egg on top and wait for the melted chocolate to cool. At this point you should have a solid base, but remember not to move the egg anymore.
If instead you want to use the whole egg stuffing it from the tip, then use the plastic base found in the packaging.
How to cut the egg in half
This is certainly the most complex step because the egg is fragile and can easily break.
I therefore recommend you use a knife with a very sharp blade and to cut the chocolate in the part where the two halves of the egg come together. Follow the cut and if necessary heat for a second the knife on the fire so that the blade passes more easily. Use kitchen gloves to avoid leaving fingerprints on the chocolate or melting it with heat.
If you want to use the whole egg instead, cut it on the tip staking it with a spoon, or even in this case use a small knife. Remember, however, that inside there is a surprise and therefore the hole must be large enough to allow you to pull it out.
How to fill the egg
Whether you use a whole egg or a half, the important thing is bring a sac à poche.
Only in this way will the result be clean and perfect. Also use gods disposable kitchen gloves to place fruit tops and sponge cake inside the egg, as well as to create beautiful decorations.
How to store stuffed eggs
Stuffed eggs are obviously very delicate and therefore go keep in the refrigerator because with the heat they risk breaking. Keep them, so just for a couple of days, or for the duration of their filling.
