Essentials recipe Delicious truffle eggs would make the perfect food gift for Easter. They're much easier to make than they may look and taste delicious. Pop a few of these eggs into a cellophane bag and tie with a ribbon. You could even give them as a gift in a colourful egg box.


  • 150g dark chocolate (70%), chopped
  • 150ml double cream
  • 25g butter
  • 50g cocoa powder

For different flavours add extracts to the truffle mix or coat the inside of the egg with freeze-dried fruit powders, or glitter!


  1. Use a skewer to tap a small hole in the base of an egg. Peel away a little shell with your fingers and tip the egg out into a bowl - save to use in other recipes, such as to make an omelette. Repeat with all the eggs. Rinse the shells and place them downwards on an egg rack in a warm place, like the airing cupboard, to dry out.
  2. Put the chocolate, cream and butter in a bowl and set over a pan of barely simmering water; let it melt slowly, stirring occasionally. Once melted, remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
  3. Put the chocolate mixture into a piping bag and fill each egg to the top with the ganache. Leave to set in the fridge. Once set, peel away the shell and eat!
