Callebaut White, Dark and Gold Caramel 2.5kg Chocolate Callets

Ingredients and Equipment Needed for Homemade Easter Eggs: 

To create these irresistible chocolate Easter eggs, you'll need the following equipment and ingredients, all available from Infusions4chefs: 

Silkomat Silicon Egg Mould filled with Callebaut White Chocolate for homemade Easter Eggs

Instructions for Homemade Easter Eggs: 

Prepare the Chocolate Mixture: Begin by melting the Callebaut white chocolate callets using a Bain-marie or microwave, stirring until smooth. After the chocolate has melted, you have the option to add liquid food colouring to give it a desired hue. If you decide to do so, add a few drops of the colouring and stir well to ensure an even distribution. 

Fill the Moulds: Pour the melted white Callebaut chocolate into each cavity of the 5-hole silicon egg mould, ensuring even distribution. Leave a hollow space in the centre of each egg to accommodate the filling. 

Set the Eggs: Place the filled mould in the refrigerator and allow the chocolate eggs to set for at least 1-2 hours, or until firm to the touch. 

Create Chocolate Nests: While the eggs are setting, prepare the chocolate nests using the Callebaut gold chocolate callets. Melt the chocolate and transfer it into a piping bag. Pipe the chocolate directly into ice-cold water, creating intricate nest shapes. Allow the nests to harden before gently removing them from the water. 

Unmould the Eggs: Once the chocolate eggs are fully set, carefully unmould them from the silicon mould. You may need to shave the edges of each egg half for a neater appearance. Now, have some fun with the liquid food colouring! With a pastry brush, splatter and paint the chocolate eggs to create vibrant and fun patterns. This part is particularly great for kids to express their creativity. 

Add Chocolate Fillings: Take a small mix of white, dark and gold caramel Callebaut callets and distribute them into the hollow chocolate egg halves. This will create a fun surprise for whoever cracks the egg open! 

Assemble the Easter Eggs: Brush a small amount of melted white chocolate around the rim of each egg half. Very gently, then press two halves together so they stick in place. Allow the chocolate to fully set, this should only take a few minutes. 

Display Your Easter Eggs: Using a plate or bowl of your choice, arrange the chocolate eggs on a bed of chocolate nests, creating a visually stunning Easter display. Serve your homemade chocolate Easter eggs as a delightful treat for all to enjoy. Whether shared with family and friends or savoured solo, these eggs are sure to be a hit.
