Ingredients
Servings
4 whole chocolate eggs
  • Chocolate candy of your choice, as decoration
  • 10 ounces Organic milk chocolate baking wafers
  • 8 ounces Cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup Florida Crystals® Organic Powdered Raw Cane Sugar
  • 1 cup Heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon Pure vanilla extract
As Decoration
  • Dried mango and pineapple
  • Shredded coconut
  • Freeze dried strawberries and bananas
  • Chocolate candy of your choice
Instructions

Step 1

Melt chocolate wafers over a double boiler. Pour 3-4 tablespoons of melted chocolate into the cavity of 8 chocolate egg molds. Using a food-safe paintbrush, brush the chocolate in a thick layer up the sides of the eggs.

Step 2

Refrigerate eggs for 30 minutes or until chocolate is firm, then carefully remove chocolate eggs from the molds.

Step 3

While the chocolate is in the refrigerator, prepare the cream filling.  In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth, while gradually adding cream and vanilla. Beat until stiff peaks form.

Step 4

Decorate one egg half with dried fruit or chocolate candy, using melted chocolate to glue the ingredients to the egg. Fill the other half of the egg with cream and top with desired ingredients. Serve immediately. 

Serving Tip

Filled eggs can be refrigerated for 8 hours. Before serving, make sure they are room temperature. 

Chef's Tip

For a variety of colors and flavors, use white chocolate to make the eggs. The filling cream can be flavored with crushed freeze-dried strawberries, cocoa, lemon, or almond extract. It’s up to you to get creative!
