In fact, a simple yet eye-catching dessert is all it takes to make any celebration extra special. Let me show you how to turn your favorite chocolate eggs into beautiful desserts aptly designed for your Easter festivities. With the heavenly chocolate eggs as the foundation, we are going to fill them with easy to make cheesecake mixture and then add a dollop of yellow tinted white chocolate to create the ultimate dessert.
When shopping for Easter eggs, make sure you choose hollow eggs. It just doesn’t matter whether they’re big or small. I used approximately 10 medium eggs in this Easter egg cheesecake recipe. The key to getting a clean cut is using a hot knife. It’s easy and neat.
Once the eggs are ready, you can start with the cheesecake filling. Make sure you store the cut chocolate eggs in the refrigerator until you make the filling. To make the cheesecake mixture, beat together cream cheese, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice and vanilla extract. Whip the cream separately and fold in to the cream cheese mixture. Fill the eggs with this cheesecake mixture.
Next up, the fun part of this Easter egg cheesecake – making the yolk. All you need to do is melt white chocolate and tint with yellow food coloring. Place a dollop of this yolk mixture on top of the eggs.
And there you go! A simple yet fun idea to make cute desserts with chocolate eggs.
