Celebrate Easter with chocolate!

It’s spring, and with Easter just around the corner, it’s time to enjoy good food and quality time with family and friends, and of course, it’s also time for the tradition of hiding, searching, and tasting… Chocolate Easter eggs!

Easter eggs come in different flavors, from dark chocolate to creamy milk chocolate and white chocolate. They’re everywhere! But what are chocolate eggs made of, and how are chocolate Easter eggs made?

Chocolate is made from the beans of the cacao fruit. The white beans hidden in the cacao fruit are delicious to eat but are also the basic ingredient for the best chocolate! Get ready for a chocolate overload!

Cacao fruit

This impressive fruit grows on the cacao tree and can be green or brown in color, depending on the ripening stage. To prepare chocolate, you need a ripe cacao fruit.

Ferment and roast

Break open the cacao fruit when it’s ripe and remove the cacao beans. Place the beans in a bowl covered with a tea towel. Let them ferment at room temperature for about 6 days. Stir the beans daily a few times to promote even fermentation. Regularly pour away excess moisture.

Preheat the oven to 120°C and spread the cacao beans on a baking tray. Roast the beans for about 2 hours, shaking them regularly, until they become dry, golden brown, and aromatic. Let the roasted cacao beans cool slightly and rub them between your hands to remove the thin outer shell.

Grind and melt

Grind the cacao beans with the sugar in a blender. It’s important that the blender is properly closed so that the contents heat up and the chocolate forms into a smooth mass. This may take a while.

Pouring and hardening

Pour the chocolate into chocolate molds or onto a baking tray covered with paper towels. Let the chocolate cool and harden in the refrigerator.
