Easter Eggs

Christians believe that Jesus was crucified on a Friday (Good Friday) and then rose on following Sunday.(Easter)

Traditionally, ostrich or chicken eggs are decorated as part of Easter celebration. Easter eggs or Paschal eggs are the symbol of resurrection. Decorated eggs were hidden and children were asked to discover the same on the Easter morning. (Easter egg hunt)

But nowadays, chocolate eggs are quite popular among the kids. In fact, I made around six eggs and kept in the fridge to set and went for a nap. When I open the fridge for white chocolate decoration, I found only two! Yes, my son played egg hunt with me! 

Ingredients :    Tempered dark chocolate  (egg shell)    ;     5 no’s of crushed any chocolate cookies  and  3 tsp of ganache or Nutella (egg yoke)      ;    Melted white chocolate (for decorating)   ;   Empty kinder egg chocolate cover (as mold)

Using tempered chocolate (using double boiler) pour it on the kinder egg toys mold and coat thoroughly. (Make sure a thick chocolate coat. So that it’s easy to remove without breaking) keep it in the fridge for about an hour.
In food processor crush the cookies (Chocolate Ragi Cookies or Rye flour Chocolate Chip Cookies) and add the ganache mix and combine well and make ball shape. Transfer into fridge to set.

Now assembling the egg, De-mold the chocolate from the kinder egg toy mold and keep the cookie balls inside the egg and close the egg. Carefully seal with melted chocolate and decorate with melted white chocolate.
