Growing up, my favorite Easter candy was the chocolate eggs.
I mean really, we are talking about CHOCOLATE here.
And the egg shapes made it extra cute and fun. :)
Today I am sharing Chocolate Easter Egg Mini Cakes.
Individual egg shaped chocolate cakes, covered with chocolate ganache.
You can decorate them any way you like, there are so many possibilities!
You could even let your kids decorate their own with candy & sprinkles.
You Will Need:
Egg shaped cookie cutter
Chocolate buttercream frosting
Chocolate Ganache (you want it to be runny)
Frosting or candy for decorating
You can find my favorite chocolate cake, buttercream & ganache recipes here.
Using the cookie cutter, cut your cake into an even number of egg mini cakes.
(Save the scraps for making trifle! Or eat them now...your call.)
Transfer the egg cakes to a wire rack, with wax paper underneath.
Don't forget the wax paper or you will have a mess!
Spread chocolate buttercream on the top of each egg cake.
Top each one with another layer of cake.
Pour the ganache on top of the cakes, letting it run down and cover the sides.
Let the ganache set up.
If you are in a hurry, you can put the cakes in the freezer.
(Note: The ganache will not completely harden.)
Time to decorate!
This could be a fun activity for the kids on Easter Sunday.
