Cognac and Orange Dream Easter Eggs

Yesterday we made an entry on liquorice fudge easter eggs and earlier today it was easter eggs with lemon. Both belong to the more untraditional easter egg combinations but very delicious and we really recommend that you try them 🙂

These easter eggs with cognac are more traditional but with a twist of orange – and I must admit, that I believe that this is the perfect combination and will definitely make them again for christmas 🙂

We have used a good quality cognac from Cadenhead’s which is known to be the oldest independent bottler of spirits. If you are interested in whisky, rum or cognac, you should really give your self the pleasure to taste some of there products – but be careful, once tasted, you’ll never go back to cheap spirits again 😀

Ingredients (20 eggs)

4/5 cup marzipan

2 oranges, zest

3-4 tbsp. quality cognac

1/4 cup walnuts, roasted

2/3 cup dark quality chocolate (70%)

 

Place the marzipan in a bowl and whisk until it gets soft. Add 3/4 of the orange zest and 1 tbsp. cognac at a time. Whisk between each tbsp. cognac.

Chop the roasted walnut and mix into the marzipan.

Form the marzipan to a ball and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.

When cold, divide the marzipan into 20 equally sized pieces and from to small eggs (approximately 1 tsp. each). Refrigerate again while preparing the chocolate.

Chop the chocolate, melt and temper it, in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water.

Cover the eggs with melted and tempered chocolate and decorate with the remaining orange zest 🙂

Serve with a good cup of coffee, or wrap it in zellophan and bring it as a hostess gift if you are going out 🙂
