Easter Egg’s Filled with Ice Cream Goodness.

I’m not sure if it’s just me, but I am sure that when I was a kid, I remember Easter Eggs were – 1. ) Bigger. 2.) The chocolate was thicker. 3.) They always had a treat of some sort inside, how things have changed. (I find as I am getting older, I’m starting to sound more like my mum, lol).

Easter Eggs-travaganza Homemade Easter Egg Ice Cream Ideas image 7 easter egg halved with lots of smaller wrapped eggs sitting in each half frosted fusionsIn more recent years, whilst buying Easter Eggs for my kids and friends kids, it’s become increasingly common to no longer find anything inside.

That was always the best bit, well for me it was. Oh and of course, scoffing all the chocolate in one sitting as you knew it was the only time of the year you’d get away with consuming that amount of chocolate at once.

So in the spirit of reliving that egg-citement, we feel it’s only right to fill our Easter eggs with lots of goodies, and deliciousness.

From speckled delights to colourful swirls, each creation is a tribute to the spirit of Easter and the joy of discovery that comes with every egg opened.

Read on to learn about our Easter-Egg-inspired homemade ice cream treats and learn how you can make these for your family and friends too.

Getting Started – The Easter Egg-Shell

Generally, we don’t want eggshells in our food, but on this occasion, we want it all to be about the eggshell! Recreating the Easter Egg shell, or vessel is pivotal to carrying your homemade ice cream creations.

When thinking about crafting Homemade Easter egg-inspired Ice Cream, it’s always a good idea to choose flavours that resonate with you and your loved ones’ taste buds.

And remember, the satisfaction of creating something from scratch, with a personal touch, far outweighs the convenience of store-bought options.

So, if you’re ready to bring the Easter spirit into your kitchen with these creative homemade ice cream ideas, let’s get straight to it.

Here’s our recipe and method for creating your own Easter Egg shells to be filled with ice cream and toppings:

Homemade Easter Egg Shells

Ingredients:Easter Eggs-travaganza Homemade Easter Egg Ice Cream Ideas image 5 woman and child making easter eggs with chocolate and moulds frosted fusions

  • 200g good quality chocolate (milk, dark, or white)
  • Easter egg moulds
  • Optional: sprinkles, crushed nuts, or edible glitter for decoration

Method:

  • Begin by melting the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, ensuring the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Alternatively, melt the chocolate in short bursts in the microwave, stirring between each interval until smooth (Note – chocolate can burn very quickly, hence the short bursts in the microwave).
  • Once the chocolate is fully melted and smooth, carefully pour it into the Easter egg moulds, ensuring that each mould is evenly coated with chocolate.
  • Use a spoon or a small pastry brush to spread the chocolate up the sides of the moulds, creating a thick and even layer.
  • Place the moulds in the refrigerator and allow the chocolate to set for at least 30 minutes, or until completely firm.
  • Once the chocolate has set, carefully remove the Easter egg shells from the moulds by gently tapping them on a flat surface.
  • If desired, decorate the chocolate shells with sprinkles, crushed nuts, or edible glitter before filling them with ice cream.
  • To assemble, simply fill each chocolate shell with scoops of your favourite homemade ice cream.

Note: For best results, ensure your chocolate moulds are clean and completely dry before pouring in the melted chocolate.

For an extra touch of Easter fun, consider using Easter bunny moulds to create chocolate shells for your ice cream treats. Simply follow the same method as above, but use bunny-shaped moulds instead of traditional egg moulds. Once set, fill the bunny-shaped shells with scoops of ice cream and decorate as desired for delicious Easter-themed desserts that are sure to impress!

Whether you choose to serve your ice cream in chocolate Easter Egg shells or adorable Easter bunny shells, these creative presentation ideas are sure to impress your guests and make your Easter celebration extra special.

Easter Chocolate Nests

In addition to Easter Egg or Easter Bunny vessels for your ice cream, you could easily try out Easter Nests. These are so quick and easy to make.

Here’s a simple recipe and method for creating Easter Chocolate Nests:

Ingredients:Easter Eggs-travaganza Homemade Easter Egg Ice Cream Ideas image 4 chocolate easter nests filled with mini eggs frosted fusions

  • 200g milk chocolate
  • 100g shredded wheat cereal or cornflakes
  • Mini chocolate eggs or other Easter candy for decoration

Instructions:

  • Begin by melting the milk chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth. Alternatively, you can melt the chocolate in short bursts in the microwave, stirring between each interval.
  • While the chocolate is melting, crush the shredded wheat cereal or cornflakes into small pieces in a separate bowl. You can do this by gently crushing them with your hands or using a rolling pin.
  • Once the chocolate is fully melted, pour it over the crushed cereal and mix until well combined, ensuring that all the cereal is coated in chocolate.
  • Line a muffin tin with paper or silicone cupcake cases. Spoon the chocolate-coated cereal mixture into each cupcake case, pressing it down firmly and shaping it into a nest-like shape with an indentation in the centre.
  • Place the muffin tin in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes, or until the chocolate has set and the nests are firm.
  • Once the chocolate nests have set, carefully remove them from the cupcake cases and place them on a serving plate.

These Easter Chocolate Nests are not only adorable and festive but also make for a fun and tasty way to serve ice cream during the Easter holiday.

Now that you’ve mastered the vessels, we can move on to putting the cherry on top, or should we say, the ice cream in the eggs.

Presenting your homemade Easter ice creams can be just as fun as making them.

  1. Hey there! Just stumbled upon your Easter Eggs-travaganza homemade Easter egg ice cream ideas, and I’m absolutely egg-static about it! 🐣🍦 What a delightful way to celebrate the season with some frozen treats. Your creativity knows no bounds, and I love how you’ve taken something as simple as Easter eggs and turned them into a culinary masterpiece.

    Your step-by-step guide is so easy to follow, even for a kitchen klutz like me. And those flavor combinations you’ve suggested—mind-blowing! I never would’ve thought to pair caramel with chocolate or mint with cookies, but now I’m itching to try them all.

    One thing I’m curious about is how you came up with these egg-cellent ideas. Did you draw inspiration from traditional Easter flavors, or was it a stroke of genius that struck while you were rummaging through the pantry? Also, do you have any tips for those of us who might not have fancy egg molds lying around? Keep the Easter magic coming—I’ll be eagerly waiting to see what other delicious surprises you have in store! 🐰🌷

    • Hey Bob,

      Thanks again for dropping by, you appear to stumble a lot. ;o)

      So glad you enjoyed our Easter Egg-stravaganza article, we had a lot of fun bringing this together, lots of testing and trying out. Easter is (well for me) an egg-citing time, fun with the kids, easter egg hunts, lots of easter eggs to scoff, ahem I mean eat and so it’s just easy for the inspiration to flow.

      If you like those flavour combinations, you should try out some of our other more curious combinations – Bacon and Maple Syrup? Or how about Lavender and Honey Ice Cream? Curiously both flavours work really well. We are always tinkering, testing and of course, tasting different flavours.

      For those without ‘fancy egg moulds’ Balloons! Seriously, blow up a balloon to approximately the size you require, and dip it in your melted chocolate, slowly covering the balloon to the halfway mark. Try and get an even covering and then place the balloons on parchment paper to set. The shape of the balloons is ideal to create an egg-like shape. Once the chocolate is set, deflate your balloons and pull them away from your chocolate egg shells, ready to fill with ice cream deliciousness!

      Hope this helps and once again, thanks for dropping by and sharing your feedback.

      Wishing you all the best

      Cherie :o)
