Cheesecake Filled Easter Eggs Ingredients

These tasty treats are incredibly fun to make and use only some simple and easily available ingredients. Let us dive a little deeper into the cheesecake Easter egg recipe ingredients:

  • Chocolate Eggs: For making this recipe, you will need hollow chocolate eggs. I have used medium-sized eggs — you can also use 1 large egg. Alternatively, you can also make your own chocolate eggs using silicone mold and melted chocolate.

  • Digestive biscuits: I have used digestive biscuits crumbs as a cheesecake base. You can also use graham crackers for this recipe.

  • Melted butter: A tablespoon of melted butter is needed for making cookie base. You can use both salted and unsalted butter for making this recipe.

  • Icing Sugar: It is added to cream cheese filling for sweetness and binding. You can also use granulated sugar in this recipe. Also, feel free to adjust the sweetness according to your taste buds.

  • Cream Cheese: Cream cheese is the star ingredient of this recipe as it is used in cheesecake filling base. It gives this cheesecake a rich, creamy texture, and a tangy taste.

I have used Philadelphia cream cheese, but you can use any full-fat cream, low-fat or light cream cheese in this recipe.

  • Heavy Cream: It is used for making cheesecake filling to add richness and a smooth texture to the filling. It is always used for making chocolate drizzle.

  • Vanilla extract: It is added to the cheesecake filling to add a subtle flavor that compliments the cream cheese.

  • Dark chocolate: For making chocolate drizzle you can use dark chocolate pieces or chocolate chips, or candy coating.

  • Decoration: I have decorated these eggs with marzipan carrots, edible sugar sprinkles, strawberries, and chocolate drizzle.

Variations

These Easter eggs are so good and easily customizable, and there are many ways to customize and decorate your cheesecake filled Easter eggs. You can use your favorite flavor and decorations for variety and personalization.

Below are some Easter Egg Cheesecake Ideas you can try:  

  • Flavor Variations: I have made the plain cheesecake filling for this recipe. You can add any of your favorite flavors to this filling. For example, you use lemon zest and juice for lemon cheesecake flavor, pureed strawberries for a strawberry flavor, pureed mixed berry for a mixed berry cheesecake filling, melted chocolate or cocoa powder for a chocolate cheesecake twist, or caramel sauce.

  • Topping or Decoration Variations: You can get creative with the decorations and use any of your favorite easter-themed sprinkles or decorations for a visual appeal and added layer of flavor and texture.

For example, you can use diverse types of edible glitter, Easter eggs, Easter bunnies, marshmallows, gummy candies, or sprinkles.

  • Food Coloring Variations: You can add a few drops of food coloring to the cream cheese bake to make it look more festive.

  • Size Variations: I have used medium sized eggs, but you can also use smaller or larger eggs depending on your preference.  

Storage Suggestions

You can serve these eggs right after decorating, or you can also store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. To maintain the freshness, it is advised to store the eggs with cheesecake filling but without decoration.

This step prevents them from getting soggy or sticky.

Serving Suggestions

To serve, place them on a serving platter and serve them as a fun and festive Easter dessert or snack along with carrot cake mug cake, carrot cake balls, chocolate pomegranate bites, or chocolate lava cake.

Tips & Tricks to make cheesecake filled easter eggs

  1. Serve cold: Cheesecake filled with easter eggs tastes best when served cold. So, it is best to serve it cold.

  2. For filling the eggs with cheesecake mixture, you can either use a small spoon or use a piping bag. Make sure to flatten the top using a cutlery or palette knife.

  3. Decorate right before serving: If you are planning to store it for 3-4 days, then make sure to decorate it just before serving to prevent them from getting too soft or melting.

  4. For a rich and creamy cheesecake filling, I have used Philadelphia cream cheese in my Easter egg cheesecake filling. But you can simply substitute it with any cream cheese brand.

  5. This recipe makes about 8 cheesecakes filled with Easter eggs. You may adjust the amount of filling if you are making it for a large batch.  

  6. Toppings: For decoration you can use either candy, jellybeans, mini chocolate bunnies, candy carrots, or even M&M’s. Decorate the top of the cake with Easter-themed decorations like edible flowers, pastel frosting, or a chocolate Easter bunny.

  7. To serve, just place them on a plate, or serve them in individual cupcake liners.

  8. Use Room Temperature Ingredients: When making cheesecake filling it is sure to use ingredients at room temperature. This way they are easier to blend.

  9. Keep the filling chilled: If you are planning to make ahead and store this filling, then make sure to keep it chilled in the refrigerator.

  10. Set the filling before serving: After spooning cheesecake filling it is recommended to chill the eggs in the refrigerator for at least 1-2 hours before serving. This will help the filling to set.

FAQ

Can I use a different type of cheese in the filling besides cream cheese?

Cream cheese is traditionally used for making cheesecake, but if you want a different flavor profile then you try using other types of cheese such as quark, ricotta, or mascarpone. Just remember that the flavor and texture would depend on the cheese you have used.  

Can I make the eggs in advance?

Yes, absolutely you can make the cheesecake ahead of time. Just fill the eggs with cheesecake filling and refrigerate until you are ready to serve. Add the toppings a few hours before serving to ensure that the eggs stay fresh.

Can I freeze the eggs?

You can freeze the cheesecake filled eggs without the toppings. To freeze, place the cheesecake filled eggs on a freezer-safe tray and freezer for 4 hours.  Once firm, wrap each egg in a plastic wrap and place them in an air-tight container. Freeze for up to 2 months.

When you want to eat, thaw the eggs overnight in the refrigerator.

Can I add other flavors to the filling?

I have made plain cheesecake using vanilla extract. You can use other flavors such as strawberry jam, lemon zest, or cocoa powder. Just make sure to add the flavor in tiny amounts to avoid overpowering the cheesecake flavor.

Can I make vegan cheesecake filled easter eggs?

Yes, you can make vegan cheesecake filled Easter eggs! To make the vegan version, swap butter with coconut oil, double cream with coconut cream, and cream cheese with cashew paste. Also use vegan chocolate eggs here.

Make the biscuit layer

  1. To cut the Easter egg in half, dip a sharp knife in hot water. Dry it off, then very gently and slowly press it around the egg on the seam to separate the chocolate Easter Egg, until the two halves separate. You can dip the knife again in the water if needed. Repeat the same with all the eggs and place them on a plate (I used 4 eggs, but in picture, you will see only 3 eggs). Divide the base evenly between egg halves. Now, use the back of a small spoon to press it down gently into the bottom until it is compact and even. Place the plate in the fridge and let the base set while you are working on the cheesecake filling.
