Chocolate Cream Filled Mini Easter Eggs

Chocolate Cream Filled Mini Easter Eggs

Okay put your hand up if you remember the first Lindt Lindor Easter egg that you ever had……………………………………… I do for sure. (Don’t worry if you could never have them - all that is about to change!!!)

I got through to 20 (I know!!!!) without ever having tried one! I had just taken up salsa dancing and a friend I met there named them as her favourite Easter chocolate.

I must admit that mine had always been Cadbury’s creme egg (I’m so making a copycat version of them one day, just need to figure the filling!!!)

I’d never tried Lindor before but that Easter I did. They were so creamy and delicious I knew I had been missing out but there is no need to miss out any more. These chocolate cream filled mini Easter eggs are everything you would hope for – just like that first bite of a Lindt Lindor Easter egg – smooth, rich, creamy perfection. Once blended nobody will even be able guess the ingredients you used!!

The cashew nuts are just so creamy – make sure that you soak them for long enough – I would say at least 4 hrs but overnight is better! It’s actually the quality I love best about cashew nuts. I love all nuts but cashew nuts blend sooooooooooooooooo well that there isn’t even a trace of them left. It’s the reason they make the easiest nut milk (no straining plus the whole nut for extra nutrition/fibre) and it is why they are the perfect choice for these chocolate cream (emphasis on the cream there) filled Easter eggs!

I like them being whole eggs rather than halves but putting them together can be a bit tricky! I found the best method was to use two matching Easter egg moulds. Keep one set in the mould and remove the other.

Coat the one in the mould with a little melted chocolate and place the matching half on top. Once set remove from the mould and there you have it a whole, chocolate cream filled mini Easter egg. Super scrummy – you’ll be hiding the in really obscure places! ;)

Quick tip on the chocolate…… It’s really cold here at the moment so keeping the chocolate the right consistency was a bit of a challenge. If you have to reheat it and are using a microwave be really careful not to burn the chocolate – I use a really low heat on mine.
