Chocolate Egg Hot Chocolate

Cayla Gallagher

Dunk these pretty chocolate ganache Easter eggs into heated milk to make creamy hot cocoa!

Recipe

Servings: 8 eggs

Ingredients

  • 8 oz chocolate (milk, white or dark), melted
  • ½ cup whipping cream, hot
  • cooking spray, or plastic wrap
  • 1 cup chocolate chips, melted
  • 2 tbsp liquid coconut oil
  • colourful candy melts, melted

Let's get Cooking...

  1. Combine the melted milk, white or dark chocolate and whipping cream in a bowl. Spoon the mixture into an egg shaped mold that is either sprayed with cooking spray or lined with plastic wrap. Place the eggs in the freezer until stiff, about 1-2 hours.
  2. Unmold the eggs (if they are stuck, try gently releasing them with a sharp knife). Transfer them to a plate lined with plastic wrap and return to the freezer.
  3. Combine the melted chocolate chips and liquid coconut oil. Place an egg on a fork and submerge in the coating. Run the bottom of the fork against the rim of the bowl to remove any excess glaze, then return to the place. Repeat with the remaining eggs and place them in the freezer.
  4. Place the candy melts into piping bags fitted with round tips and drizzle them onto the eggs.
  5. To serve, dunk one egg into 1 cup hot milk. Mix until fully melted! For extra chocolately hot chocolate, add an extra egg!
