'Cheesecake Filled Chocolate Easter Eggs' by Steph
There's no baking involved and the most difficult part might be finding hollow chocolate eggs to use. The ones shown in this Instructable are made by See's Candies. I have made my own chocolate eggs using real chicken eggs as a form but this year I decided to purchase them.
Step 1: Ingredients
6 hollow chocolate eggs (mine were purchased from See's Candies, see here)
For the cheesecake:
- 5oz cream cheese (softened)
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 tsp lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
For the yolk:
- apricot jam
- piping bag

You can see that these See's chocolate eggs came with white chocolate chicks inside!
Step 3: Making the Cheesecake
Pour the heavy whipping cream into another mixing bowl. Carefully whip it until there are stiff peaks.
Combine the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.
Step 4: Filling the Eggs
Step 5: Adding the Yolk
After you've filled all of the eggs, put the eggs in the refrigerator to set and chill before serving.

We made a small nest using fake grass and placed a yellow Peep in the middle!
