Who doesn’t love chocolate mousse, and it’s made all the better here, piped into hollow chocolate Easter eggs for the cutest Easter presentation.

The Hallow Easter Eggs

I picked up a package of hollow Easter eggs, and cut the tops off, so they were all ready to pipe the chocolate mousse into.  You will want to work carefully for this step, and maybe buy a few extras, just in case you have a little breakage.  I found a sharp serrated knife and a sawing action worked best.  Remember not to apply too much pressure when you’re cutting the tops of hollow Easter eggs off because they are quite fragile.

Our cream mixture was enough to make 1 1/2 dozen Easter eggs, but it will depend on the size of your chocolate eggs.  Look for large chocolate eggs about the size of a real large egg.  If you’re filling less hollow chocolate eggs, just cut the chocolate mousse recipe in half.

Filling The Eggs

Use a piping bake or a ziplock bag with the corner snipped off to make it really easy to fill the eggs.  This was the perfect way to get the chocolate mousse down to the bottom of the inside of the egg and to fill it without making a mess.

How To Serve The Chocolate Mousse Easter Eggs

When we were ready to serve our little treats, we added the perfect little topping of whipped cream, and a teeny wee little chocolate Easter bunny.  I found the perfect little teeny, tiny bunny sprinkles at the dollar store, but regular sprinkles, or chocolate shavings would work really well too.

We served our chocolate mousse eggs in a ceramic egg holder.  You could also use the plastic egg holder that the chocolate eggs came packaged in.  You could also also serve them in individual egg cups.

Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • 2 oz. semi sweet chocolate
  • 2 oz. milk chocolate
  • 2 eggs -separated
  • 4 tbsp sugar -separated
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 dozen hollow milk chocolate Easter eggs
  • whipped cream
  • mini Easter bunny sprinkles


    1. Chop the semi sweet and milk chocolate into small pieces. Use a double boiler, or a heatproof bowl set over a pan of small saucepan of boiling water to melt the chopped chocolate. Once completely melted set aside to cool slightly.
    2. Separate 2 eggs, and beat whites in a clean bowl with an electric mixer at a high speed until foamy. Slowly add 3 tbsp of sugar, and continue beating until you reach stiff peaks.
      Once the melted chocolate is slightly cool, stir the egg yolks into the chocolate and mix well.
    3. Add a small amount of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture and stir to combine completely. Add the rest of the whites, folding to ensure the air stays in the egg whites.
    4. Whip cream and add 1 tbsp sugar, and vanilla.
    5. Fold whipped cream into the egg white and chocolate mixture until fully combined.
    6. Carefully cut the tops off of the hollow chocolate Easter eggs.
    7. Put the chocolate mousse into a ziplock bag and pipe into the eggs. We filled 18 small hollow eggs, but it depends on the size of your eggs.
      Refrigerate the eggs until set.
    8. Before serving, top with whipped cream, and a mini Easter bunny sprinkle.
