Chocolate Orange Egg

(Makes 1 medium sized egg)


85 grams Cacao Butter
65 grams Coconut Oil
80 grams Cacao Powder
1 Tbsp Honey
1 Tsp Peruvian Pink Salt
Zest of 1 Orange
1 Orange

1) Place the Cacao butter and coconut oil in a bane marie
2) Once melted, place in a small blender with the cacao powder, honey, salt, zest and blend until slightly thickened
3) Now, slice the orange in the middle and cut a slice showing the cross section of the orange and place in the egg mould
4) Pour the smooth chocolatey mixture into the egg moulds until full and place in the freezer for 1 hour until set through
5) Now, this is the tricky part, remove the chocolate egg halves from the moulds and place them together so they create one complete egg
6) Let them sit together for a few minutes, as the chocolate softens slightly the two halves will stick together, now place the entire egg in the freezer for a further 30 minutes
7) Remove and enjoy! One thing to be aware of is that cacao butter and coconut oil only stay solidified if the room temperature is very cool, so once the egg has been made it's best to store in the fridge or freezer and consume quickly, which I'm sure wont be hard!
