What’s better than eating Easter eggs? Taking a shot out of one and THEN eating it! Oh yuss. That’s my kind of Easter party.
This year when you’re about to tuck into your choccies with family or friends, try this super quick idea for something different.
Use a sharp knife to chop the top off an egg and place it into an egg cup. Fill with your favourite liqueurs (I went for 2 parts Baileys 1 part Kahlua – yum) and you’re ready to get the party started. The egg will hold for hours, probably days, just don’t fill it with hot liquids!
To cut the top off, keep turning your egg and use a very light back and forth sawing motion with your knife, only using the weight of the knife so as not to crush your chocolatey delight or you might be forced to eat all the failures until you get it right (disaster).
- Update – a clever idea from the comments below – heat your knife in a pot of boiling water to slice through the egg easily!
Liqueurs like Patron would be perfect too if you’re wanting something with more kick. I’ve also heard that a bit of Fireball Cinnamon Whisky with Baileys and Kahlua is amazing but I didn’t have any on hand. If you haven’t tried Fireball Whisky it’s kind of life changing and I recommend you try some stat. It’s packed with tasty cinnamon spices and is a drink in its own league, not like regular whisky at all. You can comfortably sip it from a glass with ice and totally look just like Harvey Spector.
Do you have a fave shot recipe that would work a treat with chocolate? Drop me a note below, I want to hear!
