To make the egg shape mould, cut and sculpt sheets of aluminium foil to form a flat egg shape turning up the edges to form an outer, supportive ledge. The smooth chocolate mixture will sit in this.

  • Combine the ingredients for the egg in a clean bowl and mix well until a smooth paste forms.
  • Spoon the blended mixture in to the foil mould you have made and use a spatula to flatten and spread the mixture evenly, forming a generous, even layer.
  • Place in the freezer for 1+ hour.
  • 10 minutes before you are ready to remove the egg from freezer place the ingredients for the topping 1 and then topping 2 in to a blender and blend until a thick paste forms for each.
  • Place each of the toppings in to 2 separate bowls.
  • Remove the egg from the freezer and use a wooden skewer to create desired decoration on the egg with the topping paste. You will need to work quickly with this.
  • Once you are happy with the decoration place the egg back in the freezer for a further 2+ hours.

Top tip: Depending on your preferences, experiment with different flavoured nut butters for the topping!
