Pistachio Easter egg

The Easter egg tradition has ancient origins.

The ancient Roman farmers were used to bury a red coloured egg in the fields, as a symbol of fertility, believing it to be favorable to the next harvest.

It is precisely with the meaning of life that  the egg became part of the Christian tradition, recalling Christ’s resurrection and eternal life.

As a second proposal for Easter, dedicated to adults and children, I thought of an egg with pistachio mousse filling.

Here’s the recipe …


  • 1 chocolate egg per person
  • pistachio mousse


400 ml. of cream
2 tablespoons of sugar
2 tablespoons of pistachio paste
1 sheet of gelatin (gelatin)


Put the gelatin sheet in cold water for at least 10 minutes, in the meantime take a cup of cream and  warm it up.

Mix together the remaining ingredients, then add the heated jelly cream and let it melt.

Stir the emulsion, filter it through a fine mesh sieve and fill  the whipped cream siphon.

Mountthe cream with the gas cartridge and refrigerate until use.


  • crushed pistachios


Make a hole on the top of the chocolate egg and fill it with whipped  pistachio mousse, finally  sprinkle with chopped pistachios.

More idea: You can also use pieces of chocolate eggs and create a puff pastry with chocolate mousse between the layers.

Happy Easter!
