What’s Up, Hungry People

Unless you are Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons, you probably haven’t handled too many dragon eggs.

But fortunately for us peasants, no fire is required to harness the power of these dragon eggs – they’re made mostly from peanut butter, cocoa, and oats. I’d like to think my dragon eggs would have reunited the seven kingdoms under the power of deliciousness.

With a soft and chewy no-bake cookie for the base, sliced almonds give the appearance of scales on the outside of the egg.

If the Khaleesi turns out to be the one true Queen of Westeros, I’m sure similar dragon-themed delicacies would quickly gain popularity to honor the new queen. But for now, winter is coming…

Here’s What You Need

  • Butter: Adds richness and flavor, and helps bind the ingredients together.
  • Milk: Moistens and combines with cocoa for a smooth mixture.
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder: Provides the chocolate flavor foundational to the eggs.
  • Chunky Peanut Butter: Offers texture and a nutty taste; acts as a primary binding agent.
  • Oats: Gives structure and chewiness to the eggs.
  • Vanilla Extract: Enhances overall flavor complexity.
  • Powdered Sugar: Sweetens and helps firm up the mixture for shaping.
  • Sliced Almonds: Creates the appearance of dragon scales and adds a crunchy texture.

Let’s Cook

Grab your saucepan and let’s get to work. Over medium heat, whisk together butter, milk, and that rich unsweetened cocoa powder. Picture this as the dark and mysterious lands of Westeros, but in your kitchen. Bring this concoction to a rapid boil for just one minute, then take it off the heat. This quick heat blast is like a dragon’s breath, quick and powerful, setting the stage for what’s to come.

Adding the Magic

Now, stir in the chunky peanut butter and oats. Watch as the peanut butter melts smoothly into the mix, much like alliances forming in the quest for the Iron Throne. Once you’ve got that blended well, it’s time to sweeten the deal. Pour in half of your powdered sugar, stirring as you go. Keep adding it gradually until you’ve got a thick dough. If it’s sticking more than Littlefinger’s plots, sprinkle in a bit more powdered sugar until you’ve got the right consistency.

Shaping Destiny

With your dough ready, it’s time to shape the future—well, the dragon eggs. Scoop out 1-2 tablespoon-sized pieces. Now, gently roll and form these into egg shapes with your hands. Think of crafting little artifacts of power, each with the potential to hatch a dragon (figuratively, of course). Arrange these eggs on a plate or a cookie sheet, ensuring there’s space in your fridge for them.

The Final Touch: Scales

Here’s where the sliced almonds come into play. Starting at the bottom, layer them upwards like scales. It’s a bit like armoring your dragons, preparing them for the challenges of the Seven Kingdoms. Press the almonds gently but firmly into the dough. They might seem loose at first, but they’ll set in place as the eggs cool, much like plans coming to fruition.

Chill Before the Storm

Now, into the fridge they go. Let them chill for at least an hour, solidifying your efforts and setting everything in place. It’s a peaceful moment, a calm before the storm of flavors you’re about to unleash.

Daenerys’ Dragon Eggs Tips

  • Choosing the right peanut butter: Using chunky peanut butter is crucial for adding texture, but ensure it’s not too oily to prevent the dough from becoming too loose.
  • Getting the perfect texture: If the dough feels too sticky, gradually add more powdered sugar until you achieve a malleable but firm consistency. This ensures the eggs hold their shape without spreading.
  • Forming the eggs: To achieve a realistic egg shape, roll the mixture in your hands gently. If the dough becomes too soft or warm from handling, let it cool in the fridge for a few minutes before continuing.
  • Applying the almond scales: Start from the bottom, slightly overlapping each almond slice as you move up to mimic dragon scales. Press them in gently but firmly to ensure they stick.
  • Chilling is key: The eggs must be chilled until firm to set properly. This step is crucial for the almonds to adhere to the surface and for the eggs to maintain their shape.
  • Serving suggestion: For the full Westeros experience, serve these dragon eggs at your next Game of Thrones viewing party or themed event. They’re a hit with fans and add a fun element to your spread.

Once ready, these dragon eggs are not just a treat; they’re a tribute to the enduring legacy of Daenerys Targaryen and her quest to reclaim Westeros. Serve them up at your next Game of Thrones watch party and watch as your guests pledge their fealty, one bite at a time.

Instructions
 

  • In a saucepan over medium heat, whisk together the butter, milk, and cocoa powder. Bring to a rapid boil for one minute, then remove from the heat.
  • Stir the peanut butter, oats, and vanilla extract into the pot until the peanut butter has completely melted. Pour in half of the powdered sugar and stir. Gradually add the remaining powdered sugar until a thick dough forms. If the dough is too sticky, add more powdered sugar as needed.
  • Tear off 1-2 tablespoon-sized pieces of dough and use your hands to form them into an egg shape. Arrange the eggs on a plate or cookie sheet (as long as it can fit in your fridge).
  • Place almond slices, going from the bottom to the top of the egg, so that they look like scales. Gently press the almonds into the cookie – they will feel loose until the cookie has cooled completely.
  • Chill until ready to serve, or at least for one hour. Enjoy while binge-watching Game of Thrones.
