Serves 4

  • 8 eggs
  • 5 oz (145 g) white chocolate
  • 4 oz (120 g) confectionery dark chocolate
  • 6 oz (175 g) praline chocolate
  • 5 ½ oz (160 g) heavy cream
  • A small quantity of grated coconut
  • A small quantity of powdered cocoa
  • A small quantity of hazelnut powder


Preparation of ingredients:

  • Wash the eggs, and with a needle, poke a small hole in the topmost point and another larger hole on the opposite topmost point
  • Empty the eggs by blowing into the hole and collect the egg white and yolk in a bowl
  • Rinse off the eggs and dry them on a cake rack

Preparation of the ganache:

  • In a saucepan, slowly heat 1/3 of the heavy cream
  • Remove the heavy cream from heat and add the coarsely chopped white chocolate
  • Stir until the chocolate is completely melted and set aside
  • Repeat the procedure for the other two chocolates

Filling the eggs:

  • Pour each ganache, one after the other, into a pastry bag and fill the hollow eggshells
  • Arrange them in an egg carton and keep them in the refrigerator overnight


You can hide these eggs like any other Easter egg after having wrapped them in cellophane, or offer them for desert in eggcups—providing you have already prepared them to be served like soft-boiled eggs “à la coque,” but with a sprinkling of coconut, and cocoa and hazelnut powder.
