Mini Egg Dessert Pots

Mini Egg Dessert Pots

I love making these individual desserts for events like dinner parties as they make the sweet course SO easy. These Mini Egg Dessert Pots are no bake, and you can make them earlier in the day and pop them in the fridge for later. They’d be perfect for a Easter themed dinner party or family meal! You could get the kids involved in making them too as they are so simple to put together and layer up. They are made up of chocolate cheesecake, whipped cream and crushed Mini Eggs – it’s such a delicious combination! The whipped cream lightens the whole thing too so it doesn’t feel too overly chocolatey or heavy. They really are just perfect and so tasty in my opinion, I hope you like them too!

Step by step…

For the cheesecake filling I mixed together mascarpone cheese, cocoa powder, icing sugar and a little milk. Then I bashed up some Mini Eggs.

I layered up my serving glasses with some cheesecake first, then some whipped cream.

Then I added some of the Mini Eggs and more cheesecake. On top I added more whipped cream and plenty of Mini Eggs!

How do you crush the Mini Eggs?

I put the Mini Eggs into a bowl and use the end of a heavy wooden rolling pin to bash them. A pestle and mortar would be excellent for this too. Bash them with firm force, but don’t hit too hard or bits will go flying everywhere!

Do you have to use mascarpone cheese?

No, you can also use full fat cream cheese if you prefer!

What serving glasses should I use?

The serving glasses I use are actually small drinking glasses. I think they are designed for short drinks like whiskey. They have a 250ml capacity. If you don’t have any small glasses that would be suitable, you can serve the Mini Egg Dessert Pots in bowls. If you want a more elegant look, you could serve them in martini glasses. Remember that if you use much bigger or much smaller glasses than me, that you will get different serving sizes.
