1. Easter Eggs – Tiramisu Filled
For Chocolate Shell:
chocolate 70 %
Temper the chocolate over a hot water basin. Stir the chocolate for about 20 minutes. Once the chocolate is at right temperature, spread a layer evenly in moulds leaving the top open. Place the mould into the refrigerator until set.
De-mould once it is set. Stick the halves together with melted chocolate over joints from inside
For Tiramisu filling:
2 no. Eggs separated
2 tbsp. caster sugar
125 gm Mascarpone Cheese
3-4 no. Saviordi Biscuits
¼ cup espresso coffee
25 ml Marsala
Beat egg yolks and caster sugar together until thickened.
In a separate bowl beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Add mascarpone cheese to the egg whites and stir gently until just blended. Add egg yolk mixture and fold through with a wooden spoon until just combined. Set aside.
Break Saviordi biscuits and dip in coffee quickly on each side then place in the base of each chocolate egg. Top each biscuit with 1-2 tablespoons of the mascarpone mixture and then repeat with the remaining biscuits and mascarpone mixture until you have 3 layers of biscuit topped with mascarpone cream.
Garnish with grated chocolate over the top of each egg.
Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours before serving.
