Where Can I Find Hollow Chocolate Easter Eggs?

Hollow chocolate Easter eggs are a pretty common Easter candy. They are sold almost anywhere Easter candy is sold as well as online. You can use milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or even white chocolate depending on what you like and what you can find.

Opting for gourmet Venchi chocolate Easter eggs can take your creation to a whole new level. Available in decadent flavors and filled with luxurious ingredients like hazelnuts, pistachios, and other delicacies, gourmet eggs can offer a rich taste experience that pairs beautifully with the creamy cheesecake filling.

How To Halve a Hollow Chocolate Easter Egg

The easiest way I have found to cut a hollow chocolate egg in half is to warm a sharp knife under hot water, carefully and quickly dry it off, and then while applying light pressure, trace around the egg where the seam is. Keep slowly and gently working around the egg, re-warming the knife as needed, until the two halves separate.

You will probably need to dip the knife back into the hot water a few times. Just remember to dry it off first and to take your time. You will have the eggs halved in no time!

How to Make Cheesecake Filled Easter Eggs

Whipping up these Cheesecake Filled Easter Eggs is a cinch, taking hardly any time and requiring just a handful of ingredients. It’s a sweet way to create a bit of Easter magic in the kitchen without the fuss or mess!

While the no-bake cheesecake filling is quick to make, it does take about an hour or so to fully set, so be sure to factor that into your planning. It also means you can make this Easter dessert ahead of time so you can spend time with guests instead of working away in the kitchen.

Step-by-Step Instructions

These Cheesecake Filled Easter Eggs are a breeze to make, and here’s how:

Step One: Separate the Egg Halves

Begin by carefully separating the hollow chocolate Easter eggs along the seam. Do not press too hard or it will break. Take your time and know that it gets easier as you go. See my tips above on how to halve a hollow chocolate Easter egg.

Ingredients for cheesecake crust in separate bowls: melted butter, crushed graham crackers, and brown sugar, ready for mixing.

Step Two: Prepare the Crust

Next, using a blender or a snack bag and a rolling pin, thoroughly crush the graham crackers into fine crumbs. Be sure to break up any larger pieces. Then, stir in the brown sugar and melted butter until the mixture resembles damp sand. Use a fork to break up any large lumps.

Step Three: Add the Crust to the Eggs

Now divide the crust mixture among the egg halves. Using a spoon or your fingertips, carefully and gently press the mixture into the halves of the chocolate eggs until it is compact and even. Be gentle! Once finished, place the eggs in the fridge to chill while you make the filling.

Step Four: Make the Filling

Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat the cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla extract together on medium speed until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Remember to scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed. Continue beating until the mixture is creamy and smooth with no lumps.

Step Five: Fill the Eggs

Remove the eggs from the fridge and fill each chocolate egg half with the cheesecake mixture. Using a spoon or piping bag is easiest. Once the eggs are filled, place them back in the fridge for at least an hour to let the cheesecake set.

Pro Tip

Have fun decorating but keep in mind that the more you add the stickier it will be, and the heavier (more weight on the fragile chocolate shell) so keep it simple.

And there you have it! Aren’t they adorable? My favorite is the scene with the grass, bunny, and butterfly. I sort of wish I had done all of them this way, but I didn’t think of it until the last two eggs. There’s always next year!

Cheesecake Filled Easter Eggs can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days.


  • Take your time when halving the chocolate eggs.
  • Full-fat cream cheese instead of low-fat will help the cheesecake filling set better.
  • Use room-temperature cream cheese for an extra creamy mixture.
  • Drain off any excess liquid in the cream cheese to prevent runniness.

Creative Decorating Ideas for Your Cheesecake Filled Easter Eggs

Once you’ve mastered creating these delicious Cheesecake Filled Easter Eggs, the real fun begins with decorating! I used caramel sauce, a variety of sprinkles, candy miniature bunnies, and eggs, but you can use whatever you want to take your Easter eggs from delightful to spectacular!

Here are some other decorating ideas to ensure your creations are the talk of the Easter table.

  • Creme Eggs: slice these iconic Easter treats in half and then place them on top of your cheesecake eggs for an extra dose of chocolatey goodness.
  • PEEPS Marshmallow Chicks or Bunnies: These adorable chicks and bunnies make a cute and thematic decoration.
  • Chocolate Sauce: Drizzle rich chocolate sauce over the cheesecake for a luxuriously sweet finish that pairs perfectly with the creamy filling.
  • Crushed Oreo: Sprinkle over the top to add a crunchy texture and additional chocolatey contrast to the smooth cheesecake.
  • Nutella: A drizzle of melted Nutella will add an incredibly indulgent flavor that’s hard to resist!
  • Berries: Top your eggs with fresh berries like raspberries, strawberries, or blueberries to add a burst of color and a refreshing contrast to the sweet cheesecake. Or try folding some into the filling.
  • Whipped Cream: Add a dollop of whipped cream for a light, airy texture and a classic finish!
  • Small candies: Sprinkle the cheesecake filled Easter eggs with colorful candy-coated chocolates or other small candy favorites.
  • Edible flowers: pastel-colored edible flowers add a beautiful touch!
