For the chocolate shell:
- 300g melted chocolate
- 6 balloons
For the chocolate-whipped ganache:
- 300ml double cream
- 100g milk chocolate, chopped
- 50ml pure maple syrup (preferably golden colour for its delicate taste)
- 60g digestive biscuits, crushed
- 60g chocolate malt balls, crushed
- Mini chocolate eggs, for decoration
To make the chocolate shell:
- Wash the balloons before using and inflate to the size of a large egg.
- Melt the chocolate in a microwave, heating on full power in 30-second intervals and stirring.
- Dip the balloons into the chocolate, then place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and refrigerate until set.
- Once the chocolate shell is hard enough, poke a hole in the balloon and slowly let the air out of the balloon.
- Gently pull the balloon out of the shell.
To make the chocolate-whipped ganache:
- Put the chopped milk chocolate in a bowl.
- In a pan, add half of the double cream and all the maple syrup, then bring to a boil and pour straight over the milk chocolate.
- Stir the mixture until combined, then add the remaining cold cream and stir.
- Keep in the fridge until completely cold.
- Add the ganache to the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment.
- Whipped the ganache until soft peaks form.
- Pipe a layer of ganache on the bottom of the egg, then sprinkle over the digestive biscuits and malt chocolate balls.
- Repeat the layering until the Easter egg is full.
- Decorate with mini chocolate eggs and serve.
