Easter - Homemade Chocolate Cream Filled Eggs
I made Monique's Chocolate Cream Filled Eggs yesterday. Please check out Monique's blog La Table De Nana for the recipe. And while you are there spend a little time looking around. You won't find a more beautiful blog.
The recipe calls for 1/2 a can of Condensed Milk. And what was I going to do with the leftover condensed milk? Why, make a double batch of course. I dipped half in Callebaut Milk Chocolate and the other half in Callebaut Dark Chocolate.
Moe thinks that these chocolate cream eggs are better than his favourite cream eggs from a little Chocolate Shop in Toronto.
