Hello Hello!

Hope you ladies and gentleman are all well and enjoying your Easter break! Here is a little idea we was and thought it would be a great idea to have a go and share with you guys! We found this idea from La receta de la Felicidad.

You will need:

  • 12 eggs to use as shells
  • 200 g dark chocolate
  • 125 g butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 225 g granulated sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 150 g plain flour
  • 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder

First job you`ll have to do is prepare your eggs, make a whole in the bottom of the egg, using a cork screw

Peel a little bit of the shell back, then stick a needle inside to break up the yolk

Empty the eggs into a bowl, you can use these for something else (like dinner, egg fried rice, yum yum!)

Soak the egg shells in salty water (100 g to a litre of water) for 30 minutes

After 30 minutes, rinse with cold water then drain upside down till dry. Add around 1 teaspoon of veg oil inside the shell and roll around making sure the inside is all coated. Drain the excess out.

Preheat your oven to 180 c/350 f. Make little egg cups out of tin foil, so your eggs can stand up on a tray in the oven, as demonstrated by Gaila or you can use a muffin tin.

Place your egg-shells on a baking tray, so your ready to fill when you have made your brownie mix

Melt your chocolate and butter in a heat proof bowl over a pot of simmering water. while it is melting, mix your eggs and sugar together, then sieve your flour, salt and cocoa powder together.

Add your egg/sugar mix whisking together

Then using a spoon stir in your flour/cocoa/salt mix

Place the batter in a piping bag with a small nozzle pipe into the shells filling 3/4 full

Bake for 15-20 minutes


This might happen! So if it does it is better to give them a little clean while they are hot, when they are cold it is very hard. Be gentle

Allow to cool then put back in the egg carton

Look like normal eggs?????
