Yes, it's true that cooked eggs (apart from hard-cooked) are very digestible & are frequently recommended as a part of diets for invalids & convalescents with certain conditions, but that's not what we're talking about here Daizymae.

Digestibility & cholesterol/saturated fat intake are completely different things.

As a baker, I often have literaly dozens of egg yolks left over after some of my wedding cake recipes.

If I am catering the wedding I will usually make lemon and or custard tarts to go along with it, but I also make many of the things listed above. Thanks for the tips for the dogs - didn't know that one. We give our leftover scrambled eggs to them, but yeah, I could definitely share my yolk wealth.

If you are going to store them in the fridge longer than about four hours (and no more than 48), add just enough water to cover them by about 1/4" and seal tightly.

I don't know what t is called and not sure if Americans would be willing to eat raw eggs, but this is what I do. Take the same amount of egg yolks and sugar, mix it really well, using mixer sure helps, until sugar completely dissolves, then add some cocoa powder, or if you want to be really fancy shave some chocolate into the mixture, as much as you like or to make as dark as you like, I kind of go by looks, never really measured. Mix well, cool in the fridge. You can spread that on a cookie or eat it simply with a glass of cold milk. I love it. Do it probably twice a year, when I have yolks left. Otherwise it is too rich and too unhealthy, mostly because I can eat the whole bowl of it.

Thanks Charlie for the alternative perspective. We have a lady friend from Lithuania who keeps us well supplied with fresh eggs; almost more than the two of us can eat ( and she only has 3 hens- Rhode Island Reds). Chickens are truly a wonderful thing.

While it does sound delicious Charlie - whether the eggs are supermarket-purchased or farm-purchased, I'd still refrain from serving this to the very young, the very old, &/or anyone who's experiencing an immune-deficiency problem.

Same here, I never seem to have leftover yolks. I must shy away from recipes that only use whites.

In all my born days I have never heard of such a concoction but since I consider eggs to be more healthful when raw than when cooked, I am always on the lookout for raw-egg recipes. They say a raw eggwhite is no good for you (contains a vitamin antagonist) so I am going to try your egg+bit of sugar+cocoa recipe.

As far as concaction it self goes just ask any Russian wht the Gogol Mogol is? This is just a "chocolate" version of it. And as far as making it enjoy, just be careful do not forget that it is raw in the end.
