Chocolate with fried eggs

Did I just say chocolate with fried eggs? Oh yes I did! Wanna see it?

Easter is here and it means chocolate and eggs. Usually I would play with chocolate eggs, but this year I decided to play with fried eggs! Made out of chocolate of course, I’m crazy but not that crazy! Plus I wanted to play with my chocolate tablet mould, so I’ve made a chocolate tablet with a tiny fried egg in each chocolate square. Here’s how you can do it as well:

Start by doing the yolks: melt white chocolate and colour a part of it bright yellow (You’ll need a food colouring that can be used directly in chocolate). You can use a pastry bag with a small tip, a zip log bag with a tiny cut or (what I’ve used) a small paper cone. Just make small dots on each tablet square. Refrigerate for a few minutes.

With the rest of the melted white chocolate make the egg whites: put it in a paper cone (or any alternative) and start by going around the yolks and cover them. Make sure you have a realistic egg yolk-egg white ratio. Refrigerate again until they’re set, so they don’t bleed.

There you have it, the fried eggs! Now, where’s the bacon? Or in this case the chocolate…

I’ve used milk chocolate and I tempered it with the seeding method. But that’s optional, if you don’t want to temper it, just keep it in the fridge after unmolding. Poor the chocolate into the mould and when it’s all covered tap it gently on the table to prevent any air bubbles.

Refrigerate until set. It’s ready to unmold when it looks kind of foggy. Just invert the mould onto a table and it should release pretty easily. If it doesn’t release it’s not ready, so keep it in the fridge for a while longer.

So you see? You CAN have chocolate with fried eggs! Tiny tiny fries eggs, that is!

Eat eggs, eat chocolate, eat your eggs WITH chocolate… and have a happy Easter!

Those look awesome, Rita! I want/need some of those chocolate bar molds!
And I learned my lesson a year or so ago, not all food coloring is created equal and chocolate does not like that cheap stuff! ;)
