Ingredients

  • 1 x 150g hollow Easter egg
  • 2 x 100g hollow Easter eggs
  • 150g digestive biscuits
  • 60g butter, melted
  • 600g full-fat soft cheese
  • 200ml double cream
  • 75ml soured cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste or extract
  • 75g icing sugar, sifted
To decorate
  • mini Easter eggs
  • chocolate bunnies
  • dulce de leche

Step by step

Get ahead
Prep a day ahead and keep chilled. Leftovers keep for up to 3 days in the fridge.
  1. Unwrap and carefully split the Easter eggs open to give 6 half-shells. If the chocolate is too cold they may shatter, so warm gently with your hands before unwrapping any foil.
  2. Blitz the biscuits to crumbs in a food processor, or place in a food bag and bash with a rolling pin. Transfer to a bowl, add the melted butter and stir until well combined. Divide between the eggs and carefully press down to create an even layer. Chill in the fridge while you make the filling.
  3. Put the soft cheese in a bowl with the double cream, soured cream, vanilla and icing sugar and beat with an electric whisk until smooth and thickened. Remove the chocolate shells from the fridge and fill each one with the cheesecake mixture, using a palette knife to smooth the surface.
  4. Decorate with mini Easter eggs – we used an assortment of whole and roughly chopped ones – and chocolate bunnies, then finish with a drizzle of dulce de leche. Chill for a minimum of 2 hours before serving.
