Cuisine: gluten-free, vegan
Diet: Gluten Free, Vegan
Servings: 8 eggs (2" long)

Equipment

  • 16 x small silicon half-egg moulds (each egg should be approx. 2" tall - see image)
  • Pastry brush
  • Electric whisk

Ingredients

  • Flavourless oil for greasing
  • 1 100g bar dark chocolate
  • cup hardened coconut milk (Chill a can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight. Open it, drain off the excess coconut water and use only the hardened coconut cream for this recipe.)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • ¼ cup fresh or frozen raspberries (if raspberries are frozen, thaw them and drain off the excess liquid before using)

Instructions

To make the eggs

  • Using kitchen towel, grease the egg moulds lightly with oil to make the eggs easier to remove.
  • Break the chocolate into small pieces and melt in a bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring frequently.
  • Using a pastry brush, coat the inside of each mould evenly with the melted chocolate.
  • With a flat knife, scrape across the edge of each mould to give it a flush finish (this will make it easier to join the halves together later on).
  • Place the mould in the fridge for 10 minutes to set.
  • Repeat this process, building up 3-4 layers of chocolate and leaving the eggs to set in the fridge for 10 minutes between each layer. (Pay special attention to building up a slightly thicker layer of chocolate around the top edge of each mould so it doesn't get too thin, as the chocolate can drip down and gather in the bottom.)

To make the filling

  • Using an electric whisk, beat the hardened coconut milk for two minutes until light, fluffy and lump-free. Add the maple syrup and beat for one for minute.
  • Add the raspberries and beat for 30 seconds until the pieces are broken up in the cream.

To assemble

  • Remove the chocolate egg halves from the fridge and fill each with the raspberry cream mixture.
  • Run a hot knife along the edge of two egg halves to melt the chocolate, then quickly sandwich them together. Do the same with the remaining eggs.
  • Store in the fridge for 5 minutes to set then enjoy.
