MogoBlog MogoLicious Tasty Tip of the Day: An eggspresso is a shot of espresso brewed into a chocolate Easter egg. If you’re a chocolate lover, this sounds absolutely magical! Try this out for a sweet treat or afternoon pick-me-up!
- Chocolate Easter Eggs
- Once you unwrap the metal foil from the egg, you need to chop off the smaller top of the egg carefully or your entire egg will crumble.
- Remove the filling from the egg.
- Sit your hollow chocolate egg in a small espresso cup and hit brew.
- Brew and serve! The chocolate egg will slowly melt into the hot espresso for a sweet kick. And if you drink your espresso fast enough, eating the coffee-soaked chocolate out of the mug is highly encouraged!
- If you want to save some time and mess, try to find hollow eggs! But if you’re up for a little DIY, just buy a few filled eggs. Cadbury caramel eggs work best. The Lindt variety are a longer oval shape than the Cadbury and the truffled-chocolate filling is harder to remove. Between the creme and caramel Cadbury eggs, it’s really up to you! As assumed, the caramel filling is much more messy to remove. Love caramel, a little extra leftover in the egg is a much-appreciated touch.
- Buy way more eggs than you think you will need!
- It’s easier to use a steak knife with a bit of a serrated edge and using a slight seesaw motion, versus chopping with a sharp chef’s knife.
- Don’t worry too much about removing every bit of creme or caramel. It’s just an added sugary bonus!
- Using a clear glass espresso mug is also encouraged if you’re going for presentation!
- The chocolate egg will slowly melt into the hot espresso for a sweet kick. And if you drink your espresso fast enough, eating the coffee-soaked chocolate out of the mug is highly encouraged!
