Ingredients

Method

Ganache

  1. Break the milk chocolate into squares and place in a heatproof glass bowl and set aside. Ensure the bowl fits within a saucepan so you can heat the chocolate and the mixture in one bowl.
  2. Mix the whey powder and cocoa powder together and add the water and whisk
  3. Add the vanilla extract and whisk again
  4. Pour the mixture over the broken chocolate in the glass bowl
  5. Place the bowl on to a saucepan of hot water and (do not let the water touch the bottom of the glass bowl, keep the water shallow). Place on a low heat and keep mixing until all chocolate has melted and the chocolate and mixture have merged together. Then set aside to cool.

The Egg

  1. Melt the dark chocolate via heating in a heatproof glass bowl over a saucepan of water
  2. Once melted let it cool slightly then use a pastry brush to cover the inside of the Easter Egg mold
  3. Ensure the layers of brushed chocolate are not too thick and place in the fridge to set between coatings, to allow the shell to build
  4. Once the shell has set and is approx. 3mm thick, split the ganache mixture between the two halves of the mold and return to the fridge to set
  5. Finally join the two halves together using melted chocolate as a glue between the halves and then allow to set in the fridge.
