Easter Eggs Recipe


Tomorrow we celebrate Easter and today I am leaving you with this Easter Eggs Recipe – these eggs are quite delicious.

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I feel that this year everyone has little motivation to celebrate Easter.

But the truth is that it is already tomorrow and this day should be celebrated.

I have already given you several tips on how to celebrate this day with the people you love the most. But I remind you, make new technologies your allies and use them to feel closer, even if far away.

Celebrating is good, very good, especially in these times we live in. It helps us feel better and happier!

And to start the day off right, how about a surprise right during breakfast?

The older ones will for sure have a smile on their face. The younger ones, on the other hand, will be amazed and excited!

But don’t worry, even though they are chocolate eggs, these eggs are much healthier and are perfect for a yummy and good breakfast, but without exaggeration.

In case you don’t want to eat chocolate for breakfast (I understand, but let’s be honest, on party days it feels good!) you can have them as a snack or dessert.

Although I would eat them all for breakfast. ahah Sorry, but I can’t resist!

Let’s prepare a nice breakfast for the folks at home.

How to make this Easter Eggs Recipe?

First of all, you should note that this is quite a fragile recipe.

Since I don’t have egg molds, I had to find another way and came up with a very creative way to make the oval layer of these easter eggs.

The big trick is not to use ingredients that are too dense if you only make one layer of chocolate, which is what I did. Otherwise, the eggs will crack.

Don’t forget that if you fill the eggs with a hot topping, the eggs will melt! This may seem basic, but in the excitement of making the eggs, I believe many will not remember this.

To make the chocolate layer, simply dip the raw eggs in melted chocolate. I explain everything in the full recipe, take a look.

Easter Eggs Recipe

This is a delicious Easter recipe, with a taste of chocolate but still healthy. Because a little bit of chocolate never hurt anyone, especially on these special days!
Prep time:30 minutes
Cook Time:10 minutes
Total time:40 minutes
Keywords: chocolate eggs, Easter eggs, easter recipes
Portions: 6 people


  • 1 bar chocolate 70% cocoa
  • 2 cups greek yogurt
  • 3 to 4 tbsp granola to taste
  • 6 eggs to use as molds


  • Start by preparing 6 eggs, which will serve as molds for the chocolate eggs. Since I don't have egg molds, I used raw eggs to help me.
  • Wrap the raw eggs in cling film and leave a small tip out (the end where you close the wrapping), to help you hold them. Set aside.
  • Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie (i.e., hot water bath)
  • Once the chocolate is melted, dip half the eggs wrapped in cling film into the chocolate. Let the chocolate drip a little.
  • Let the eggs rest on some ramekins or small bowls so that the chocolate part is facing up.
  • Store the eggs in the refrigerator or freezer for at least 30 min.
  • Take the eggs out of the refrigerator and carefully open the cling film and remove the raw egg.
  • Again, very carefully, remove the cling film.
  • Store the chocolate eggs in the refrigerator if they are not to be served immediately. Only add the filling when it's time to serve.
  • If you want to serve immediately, fill the eggs with greek yogurt and sprinkle with granola.
  • Serve and enjoy!


Be careful because the chocolate layer will be very thin, so breaks easily. 
If you want the eggs to have a more resistant chocolate layer, repeat the process of dipping the eggs in the chocolate one or two more times, always placing them in the refrigerator between times. This way you can fill them with a denser mixture without worrying about breaking them.
Instead of granola, you can use dried fruit. If you like pistachios, the eggs will be a beautiful color!
You can also use seeds, that would work too.
If there's any melted chocolate left, you can use it as a topping for your easter eggs.
If you have children and want to give them an extra treat, you can use colored sprinkles as a topping. I'm sure they will love it!
