Easter Egg Mousse


Prep time: 20 mins  
Cooking time: 4hrs +
Serves: 4


  • Mousse:
    ● 3 eggs, whites and yolks separated
    ● 150g of 70% Koko Black dark chocolate
    ● 25g of unsalted Pepe Saya butter
    ● 1 tablespoon of caster sugar
    ● 300ml of thickened cream
    ● Medium-sized Koko Black Easter eggs, halved for serving
    ● Small decorative Koko Black Easter chocolates, for decoration
  • Whipped cream:
    ● ½ cup heavy cream
    ● 2 tablespoons of caster sugar


  1. Break the chocolate into a heatproof bowl with the butter and place over a
    saucepan filled roughly to a quarter with water. The water should not touch
    the bowl. Bring to a boil and stir consistently until it’s fully melted and
    combined. Remove from the stovetop and let it cool.

  2. Beat the thickened cream until it forms soft peaks and holds its shape.

  3. Separate the whites and yolks of the eggs into two separate bowls. Lightly
    beat the egg yolks until fully mixed. Beat egg whites until they become a
    foamy texture, then add the sugar and continue beating until soft peaks form.

  4. By now the chocolate should have cooled but still be silky in texture. Place in
    the microwave for 10 seconds if it’s become set. Fold in the egg yolks to the
    chocolate using a silicone-style spatula, gliding it under the mixture and
    turning it over gently.

  5. Using the same gentle folding technique, mix in the cream and then the egg
    whites. The mousse should be thick but airy.

  6. If you are working with whole Easter eggs, warm a knife under hot water and
    gently slice along their seams. Don’t worry if there’s a bit of breakage - the
    mousse can act like glue and you can reattach bits if needed.

  7. Either spoon the mousse straight into the egg or fill the mousse in a plastic
    lunch bag with a cut corner to pipe it in.

  8. Place in the fridge and let it set for at least four hours.

  9. Before serving, whip the cream with sugar and either spread or pipe it over
    each egg.

  10. Decorate them with your smaller chocolates and serve
