Surprising Easter Eggs

These easter eggs are sooooo delicious – you should definitely try them 😀

When we refer to almond nougat below, we don’t mean the soft nougat with nuts, but the kind made from almonds, cane sugar and cocoa butter (the picture below).

4/5 cup almond nougat

30 almonds

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 orange, zest

3/4 cup dark quality chocolate

 

 

Place the almonds and sugar in a frying pan and heat until sugar is melted. Stir to combined the almonds with the melted sugar. Transfer the brittle to a sheet of baking paper and let cool completely. Chop the brittle when cooled.

Knead the 2/3 of the brittle and the zest from 1 orange into the almond nougat. Form to a ball and fridge for 10-15 minutes. Divide the nougat ball into 20 equally sized pieces and form to eggs. Fridge again for 10-15 minutes, while tempering the chocolate.

Cover the eggs with tempered chocolate and decorate with the remaining brittle 🙂
