The cuisine of The United States is a rich amalgamation of peoples, religions and cultures thanks to the immigrants from different parts of the world.  They brought with them their local ingredients as well as cooking styles with them.  Yet amidst all these varieties Chinese and Italian cuisines dominate.  
During the 18th and 19th centuries, the Americans developed a number of new foods.  What characterised the American cuisine is the adaptation of a fusion of multiple ethnic cooking styles. During this period food production and presentation became more industrialised.

Ingredients for Easter Egg Recipe

  • Dark Chocolate 1/2 kilogram

  • White Chocolate 50 grams

  • Gems 15-20

  • Toffee 8-10

  • White chocolate 100 grams

Method

Step 1

Melt chocolate in a double boiler. In case you do not have a double boiler, put some water in a bigger vessel and place a smaller bowl with the chocolate in it.

Step 2

Add cocoa butter, which helps the chocolate to set faster and also to de-mould.

Step 3

Keep stirring till all the chocolate has melted. Take it out of the double boiler and keep stirring till it cools sufficiently.

Step 4

To test whether the melted chocolate has reached the required temperature put a toffee in it.

Step 5

When the toffee stops melting it means the correct temperature has been reached.

Step 6

Line the mould with some cocoa butter. Pour a little of the melted chocolate in each half the mould and tilt so that it spreads evenly.

Step 7

Pour out the extra chocolate. Keep the moulds on a bed of ice to set the chocolate.

Step 8

When it is almost set, remove the extra chocolate at the edges so that when the two halves are joined together it looks neat.

Step 9

De-mould the two halves. Fill the halves with toffees, gems or any other filling of your choice.

Step 10

Melt some white chocolate in the same way. Take melted white chocolate in a piping bag and line the open edges of the two halves of chocolate case.

Step 11

Join them together. Make some design on the outside with the white chocolate.

Step 12

Leave it in the refrigerator till the chocolate has properly set.
