No Fuss – Chocolate Scotch Egg!

The recipe:

1 Large Chocolate Brownie (already made)

5 Cabury’s Cream egg or choose Caramel or Oreo Eggs 200g

Sprinkles of your choice.

This is a chocolate lovers dream and its fun for the children to try. Each Scotch Egg Crème Egg contains one whole Crème Egg, wrapped up in a chocolate brownie, set in the fridge and covered in sprinkles. Feeling adventurous? Experiment with different coatings; honey comb pieces, edible glitter or even freeze dried fruit crumbs.You can even change the eggs inside, which ever is your favourite… as long as it gooey! You can make your own brownie or just buy one to save time just like we did here at Salad Days.

Step 1: Take your brownie and skim the top off of it to remove all of the loose crumbs. This will ensure you have a smoother mixture to shape around your creme egg.

Step 2: Take a creme egg and remove the wrapper. Use your hands to shape the brownie around the egg ensuring an even thickness all the way around. (We aimed for about 1cm).

Step 3: Once you’ve coated your egg and smoothed it as best as you can, place it on a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Put this in the freezer for 5 minutes so the scotch egg firms up.

Step 4: Remove the scotch egg from the freezer and then roll in your topping of choice. We suggest chocolate strands, or multicoloured strands for that pop of colour.
