Looking for a fun way to celebrate Easter? These Cheesecake Filled Easter Eggs are absolutely adorable!

Where do I find hollow chocolate eggs?

Hollow chocolate eggs are a really common Easter candy. They are sold almost anywhere Easter candy is sold. If you can’t find them in your local stores, they are also available on Amazon. You can use dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or white chocolate depending on personal preference and what you can find.

How do you cut off the tops?

Use a sharp knife and it should be able to slide right through the chocolate. If you are having difficulty, run the knife under hot water to warm it up and it should glide right through.

What is the best way to pipe the cheesecake filling into the eggs?

Transfer all of your cheesecake filling to a disposable piping bag, or ziploc bag. Snip off the end. Place the end of the bag into the bottom of an empty chocolate egg shell and gently squeeze, pulling up slowly as the egg fills with the cheesecake filling.

What is the best way to add in the “yolk” filling?

First, you’ll need to create a small indentation in the cheesecake filling. You can use a very small spoon to scoop out a small crater, or just use your finger to create a small indentation. You can either carefully drip the yolk filling mixture into this indentation, or use a piping bag with a small tip.

Ingredients
  • 12 hollow chocolate easter eggs
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Yolk Filling

  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons apricot jam or lemon curd
  • 1 tablespoon lemon or orange juice
Instructions
  • Use a small sharp knife to carefully remove the tops of the chocolate eggs. Set aside while you prepare the filling.

  • Pipe cheesecake filling into each of the eggs. Refrigerate 30 to 60 minutes.

Hi Rachel!
I can’t wait to make these. My question is what can I use in place of a piping bag?
BTW: Love your recipes, your enthusiasm, cheerfulness and beautiful smile. It makes me want to try these recipes even more so!

Priscilla

Can I prepare these the night before or is it best fresh?

Autumn Wallace

I have been dying to make these for years!!! I found these eggs at Costco for an incredible deal! I can’t wait to try this recipe out

When l tried to cut the top off of my egg the side began to crack. Would refrigerating them first be helpful? Want to make these for Easter but had a hard time finding the hollow eggs and won’t have time to find more if l mess these up.

Clare Blackstone

Hi Rachel, Thanks for the recipe. I made these last night for a group of 50 and they loved them and they looked fantastic.

I’ve seen them at Costco

At first I thought the egg yolk was a lemon curd. Wouldn’t that be delicious? I think I will make these and use a home made lemon curd.

Miriam

Where can I get the hollow chocolate eggs? I have look in several places and I figure it would be easier to make my own.

Jean collins

I am going to. Make these.

donna

I think lemon curd would also work for the yolk and be delicious.
