For a chocolate eggstravaganza this Easter, my chocolate mousse filled easter eggs, with an indulgent caramel centre will be a guaranteed winner with kids AND adults.

I use duck eggs instead of hen eggs as they have a wonderful white shell. Spray the outside with an edible gold spray for something really special.

For an adult only twist, add in a tsp (to taste) of Amaretto to the chocolate mousse once all the ingredients are combined.

Cooking Stages

    • Begin by washing each egg in warm water. Dry thoroughly. Insert a sterilized needle into the small end of the egg to make a small hole. Do the same to the larger end and make a hole about 1/4 inches.

    • Insert a needle into the large end to break the internal yolk. Remove the contents of the egg by blowing into the small hole through a straw.

    • Place the shells into a large cooking pot and slowly add warm water. Simmer on a low heat and for about 10 minutes and place on a clean kitchen towel. Let them dry for at least 30 minutes.

    • For the Chocolate mousse:

    • Blend the avocado, date paste (or pitted medjool dates), sweetener of choice and coconut milk in a small food processor until smooth and creamy.

    • Add cacao powder, salt, vanilla (and Amaretto if using) and resume processing until well incorporated and whisk for a few minutes until light and fluffy.

    • Spoon into one pipping bag and set aside.

    • For the caramel:

    • Mix your melted butter with your sweetener of choice and the salt. Spoon into the second pipping bag.

    • Pipe half of each egg with the chocolate mousse. Then pipe a small amount of the caramel into each egg. Top the rest of the eggs up with the remaining chocolate mousse.

    • Place each egg back into the egg carton and place in the fridge for a few hours to set before serving.
