Cajeta-Filled Chocolate Eggs

Cajeta-Filled Chocolate Eggs

When I was a teenager, I worked at a candy store in my local mall. But it wasn’t just any candy store; it was a chocolate candy store very popular during the holidays. As you could imagine, Easter was one of the busiest times of the year. There were chocolate eggs with filling of all sorts: caramel, marshmallow, truffles, cream, and coconut, to name a few. But one that surprised me was a cajeta-filled chocolate egg. A few years later, I started to experiment with this very idea every Easter. In my version, I added a little bit of chipotle powder to give it a bit of a kick. And the results are surprisingly amazing; I mean, chocolate, spice, and cajeta! MORE + LESS -

Ingredients

  • 1
    Empty 1 bag of chocolate chips into a double boiler. Mix until chocolate is completely melted.
  • 2
    Sprinkle chipotle pepper into chocolate and mix well.
  • 3
    Evenly pour chocolate into a silicone egg mold (I used an Easter egg mold, that had 6 molds).
  • 4
    With the back of a spoon, spread chocolate around the entire mold.
  • 5
    Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • 6
    Remove mold from fridge and fill the center of each mold with a tablespoon of cajeta.
  • 7
    Melt the other bag of chocolate and top all the molds with remaining chocolate. Place back in the fridge for 2 hours or until chocolate is completely hardened.
  • 8
    Carefully remove chocolate eggs from molds. Enjoy!
  • When removing chocolate eggs from the mold, simply pull the mold away from the chocolate for minimal handling.
