Dessert? It's an Illusion

Martha Stewart Living, March 2008

What appear to be cracked eggs are something better, or at least sweeter -- scoops of mango sorbet in chocolate shells.

How-To
Use a sharp paring knife to split hollow chocolate eggs, available at specialty-food stores, in half, using the seam as a guide. Use a melon baller to scoop sorbet into each shell. Serve immediately, or freeze up to 2 hours.

    They're not available in the states because the FDA does not approve the tiny toy pieces that come in the "yolk" plastic container inside. While some ethnic grocery stores may carry them, it's a rare find in the US. Ordering them online is the best bet - unless you live near Canada or frequent Europe or Asia!

    These are Kinder eggs, I checked the guide section and the website is kindereggs.us. I oredered online on a friday and received them on Tuesday. I used a mango sorbet and drizzled them with rasberry coulis.

    I'm not sure how it would taste, but for the same look you could use Kinder eggs (called "Kinder surprise") they're readily available in Canada at most convenience or grocery stores, and should be in the States as well.

    Where can I find this type of chocolate egg?
