Chocolate deviled eggs

At first I thought, "How ridiculous!" but then lots of chocolate desserts contain eggs. Chocolate just follows me around. When I got home from Meijer's on Tuesday, I found in my grocery bags Devil's Food donuts, chocolate peanut butter Cheerios, and chocolate peanut butter flapjack single serving cups. Watch out for other shoppers throwing things in the cart when you're not looking.

6 hard boiled eggs
3 Tablespoons cream cheese
3 teaspoons unsweetened, dark cocoa powder
1 ½ Tablespoons confectioner’s sugar
1 ½ Tablespoons heavy cream
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt


Peel and halve eggs. Remove yolks and mash in a bowl.
Add the cream cheese, cream and vanilla to the yolks and thoroughly mix. Add the cocoa, sugar and salt and continue to mix until well incorporated and smooth. A food processor will simplify this process.
Fill the whites with the mixture.
Garnish with shaved chocolate and a bit of sea salt.
Cocoa and sugar amounts may need to be adjusted slightly depending on personal taste and the percentage cocoa used. Accordingly, the amount of heavy cream may also need to be adjusted.
