Phew….That’s a long name for something that is so small. I couldn’t think of anything else to name them. Everything else would have been too short and not gotten the point across of what they actually are. So why Alien eggs? Because I’m a nerd (partially) and I had a silicone mold to put to use. These are actually for ice cubes but ice cubes dilute beverages so I use them as chocolate molds instead.
- 20 oz. chocolate bark (Log House is the brand I use because it’s cheap and is always sold at Target)
- 2-4 tablespoons of Biscoff Spread (I guess you could use regular cookie butter but if you read this blog then you already know I remain faithful to my precious Biscoff at all times)
- Using a double boiler, melt the chocolate a few cubes (ounces) at a time. Make sure to use a plastic fork to move it around as it begins to melt.
- Remove the double boiler from the heat and place on a cooling rack. Grab your alien egg molds (or any molds you’ll be using for this) and fill them 3/4 of the way with the melted chocolate.
- Pop the molds into the freezer for 10-15 minutes.
- Remove the molds from the freezer and pop out the individual chocolate pieces.
- Refill the molds with more melted chocolate and put them in the freezer. While those fresh pieces chill, take the already solidified pieces and spread the Biscoff Spread on the flat side.
- Remove the other set of molds from the freezer after the 10-15 minutes have passed. Press them, flat side in, with the other completed molds and hold for a few seconds. Use a clean fingertip to go around the edges and remove any excess Biscoff.
- Put the completed chocolate pieces back into the freezer for another 5 minutes. Remove from freezer and ta-da, you have alien eggs!
These are actually a lot of fun to eat. When you bite into them, you taste the chocolate followed by the hint of Biscoff. They’re also fun to look at since they go all the way around and therefore resemble a real egg. I haven’t ate the big one yet. I kind of don’t want to since it’s so fun to look at.
