Looking for Easter recipe ideas? Kids will love these creamy mousse eggs.


  • 350g Cadbury Milk Chocolate Melts

  • 6 balloons

  • 250ml Philadelphia Cream For Desserts, a double cream alternative

  • 250g Cadbury White Chocolate Melts

  • 2 egg whites

  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar

  • Yellow liquid food colouring


  • 1.

    Melt half the milk chocolate in a bowl over simmering water. Remove from the heat add the remaining chocolate and stir until smooth.

  • 2.

    Partly inflate 6 balloons to the size of a small orange. Lower just the bottom section of a balloon into the melted milk chocolate to coat then place on a paper lined tray to set. Repeat with remaining balloons. Refrigerate overnight. When milk chocolate has set, pop, remove and discard balloons. Place a chocolate cup on each serving plate.

  • 3.

    Combine the Philly with the white chocolate in a bowl and stir over simmering water until the chocolate has melted. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.

  • 4.

    Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form, gradually beat in the sugar until dissolved to make a light meringue, and then gently fold through the chocolate mixture. Colour 1 cup of the mixture yellow.

  • 5.

    Divide the white mousse mixture between chocolate cups. Top each with a spoonful of yellow mousse mixture to resemble an egg yolk. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.


By refrigerating chocolate coated balloons overnight, upon coming back to room temperature the balloons will begin to pull away from the chocolate making removal much easier!

This was a disaster! Don't use chocolate melts for this recipe as the resulting 'eggs' are too soft. Can't get balloons out from chocolate as it is too soft. Suggest melting real chocolate (preferably dark) and using 1/2 Easter egg moulds to create shell. The filling is quite good but I only made 1/2 quantity and still had some left over. Only a small amount of yellow is needed for 'yolks'.

Balloons stick to the choc completely after being in the fridge overnight. Did not work, a complete mess!
