Which Easter Eggs Should I Use For Easter Egg Cheesecakes?

Any size Easter egg would work for this Easter egg cheesecake recipe. We used 128g Cadbury’s Easter eggs which were only ¬£1.50 and they worked great!

Note: We also tried hollow mini eggs, like the ones you’d use in an Easter egg hunt, and these were an absolute disaster to break in half without cracking… so avoid those!

How Many People Does This Easter Egg Cheesecake Recipe Serve?

This Easter egg cheesecake recipe will be enough for you to fill 6 Easter egg halves.

However, there’s so much chocolatey goodness in one half that we recommend each halve should be shared between at least 2 people.

Best Way To Break Easter Eggs In Half?

As mentioned above, breaking small, Easter egg hunt-sized eggs in half is pretty tricky but breaking a standard-sized egg is pretty easy.

We found that the 128g Cadburys eggs came apart nicely just by looking at them! However, if your egg doesn’t break in half by itself then use a warm knife to patiently score around the seam until the two halves separate.

Do I Need Any Special Equipment To Make This Easter Egg Cheesecake Recipe?

Other than a bucket load of willpower not to eat the Easter eggs before you fill them, you really won’t need any special equipment for this Easter egg cheesecake recipe.

We used a food processor to blitz the biscuit base (because we’re lazy), but if you don’t have a food processor then you can smash the biscuits in a bowl using a rolling pin.

We also used a standing mixer to whisk the cheesecake filling, however, a hand mixer or whisk would work just as good too!
