    Can you believe Easter is almost here?

    I've been playing with some easter recipes this weekend & thought I'd sneak up a preview for y'all.
    Unfortunately, we all get those horrid generic eggs from an anonymous someone each easter.
    I thought this was a cool way to jazz up those generic bad boys and give them a more righteous status.

    These are simple to make, look fab and in general are just something different from the traditional boring stuff we all generally eat each year.
    Kids (and big kids alike) will love these eggs.
    The perfect dessert to an easter feast :D

    INGREDIENTS

    • 6 chocolate easter eggs
    White Filling:

    • 125 ml Bulla Thickened Cream
    • 150 g block cream cheese
    • ¼ cup pure icing sugar (add more if you like it sweet)
    • ½ tsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    Yellow Filling:

    • 1 tbsp apricot jam
    • 1 tbsp orange juice
    • 1 tbsp butter

    METHOD

    1. Using a mixer beat together the cream cheese, icing sugar, lemon juice & vanilla extract for 3-4 minutes on high, until the mixture is pale, smooth and fluffy.

    2. In a separate large bowl, whip cold Bulla Thickened Cream to stiff peaks.

    3. Gently combine the 2 mixtures with a whisk & place in the fridge until needed.

    4. Warm the apricot jam, orange juice & butter in a saucepan over low heat until the butter has melted

    5. Pour into a separate bowl and allow to cool slightly before placing into the fridge to cool completely.

    6. Cut the tops off the chocolate eggs with a sharp tipped knife (this can be easier when at room temperature & may take a few passes to cut through … just be patient). Reserve the tops for decoration.

    7. Spoon the white mixture into the eggs and place back into the fridge to set.

    8. Remove a small section of the white mixture with a teaspoon, then spoon in the yellow yolk mix.

    9. Serve in an egg cup.

    10. Keep tightly wrapped in the fridge for a few days if needs be.

    If these are what I think they are I made them for the family last year and they are awesome. So easy and oh so delicious. Funnily enough I misplaced my recipe so it will be good to get it again so I can see about replicating it this year. :thumbup:

    I've seen/eaten those eggs but cant for the life of me remember the brand.

    One is Cookies n Cream and the other is strawberry and white chocolate.

    Be strong all you dieters - jesus will protect you :eek:

    The egg story is an interesting one...
    They are indeed the ones scrantic mentions below. About $10 for 6 or something like that.
    Upon pulling the plastic 'egg carton' from its cardboard outer, 4 of them fell out of the packaging all over the counter. I was able to salvage 1 (the one at the front) and had thought i may as well utilise the rest of them for a photo :D
    There was much cursing ... it didn't make me feel any better though :(

    My kitchen was cursed that night ...
    the mrs also dropped some real chook eggs later on the same evening.
    Perhaps an evil chicken spirit has taken over :Paranoid:

    Easter is almost here.

    get busy :p

    Of course it goes with out saying you can make your own from moulds if you like.
    But if you buy some nice ones from the shop you can save some hassle.
    Hello Haighs Chocolate here i come!
