Raw Easter Egg Dipped in Chocolate Food, RecipesBy Tales Of A KitchenApril 10, 2021 Share Chris from Tales of a Kitchen is sharing this gorgeous recipe with you. Hopefully, it’s not too late for you to whip up this Easter egg and enjoy it with your family. Ingredients: Serves: 4-6 For The Egg: – Handful of each: almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts – 100 g dates (the Medjool variety is beautiful in this recipe, but regular dried dates will work too – soak them in water for 30 minutes, drain and pat dry) – A big handful of mixed frozen organic berries – 3 big tablespoons of coconut butter – 1 tablespoon cacao nibs For the chocolate: – 50 g cacao butter. – 1 tablespoon raw local honey (or maple syrup for a vegan version) (if you prefer your chocolate on the sweeter side, use 2 tablespoons; similarly, you can skip the sweetener altogether and go for pure dark chocolate, the egg should be sweet enough to balance the bitterness of the chocolate). – 50 g cacao powder. Method: – Add almonds, hazelnuts, and walnuts to a food processor and blitz until they are finely ground. – Add dates, one at a time, and process until you get a sticky mix. – Scoop the mix into a bowl and mix in the coconut butter and berries by hand; do not over mix to keep the berries as a whole as possible (this will make them pop with flavor when eating). – Press the mix into an egg mould and place it in the fridge to set (or freezer). Making the chocolate: – Melt the cacao butter using the bain Marie method (a small bowl atop a pot of slowly simmering water, make sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl). – Mix in the sweetener and taste, see if you want to use 1 or 2 tablespoons. – Add the cacao powder and mix well until you get a smooth, shiny, luxuriously rich and thick chocolate. – When the egg is firm enough, take it out of the mould and place it on a plate. Pour chocolate on top to cover it fully or partially and sprinkle some cacao nibs. This keeps well in the fridge for 2-3 days.
