Coconut Easter Eggs
Your Easter celebrations may look a bit different this year, due to the circumstances, but that doesn't mean you can't still enjoy special Easter treats with your family. Our Coconut Easter Eggs are an easy, no-bake treat.
- 1 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
- 2/3 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 Wedderspoon Manuka Honey
- 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 3 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 to 3 drops natural plant-based food coloring or superfood powders
- Egg-shaped silicon mold
- 5 oz of your favorite chocolate (we used dark and white)
- Add all ingredients, except the chocolate and food coloring, to a large mixing bowl or food processor.
- Combine with a spatula or blend on high speed until the mixture is consistent and in a crumble form.
- Divide the crumbly coconut batter into four small mixing bowls.
- Add two to three drops of natural food coloring to three bowls - let one bowl remain without food coloring.
- Stir with a spoon to combine the food coloring evenly in the three bowls. Make sure you are using a different spoon for each bowl to avoid transfer of color from bowl to bowl.
- Fill each egg in your egg-shaped silicon mold with the coconut batter. Press firmly with your fingers to compact the batter. Freeze for ten minutes.
- Meanwhile, melt the dark chocolate on the stove or in the microwave. If using the microwave, heat in 30-second spurts, pausing to mix in between, until fully melted.
- Remove the coconut eggs from the freezer, take them out of the silicon mold and place them onto a plate. Dip them one at a time into the chocolate, using 2 forks to hold the coconut egg into the mixture.
- When fully covered with melted dark chocolate, place on a tray covered with baking paper. Repeat for each coconut egg until all are fully covered in dark chocolate.
- Freeze for ten minutes until the chocolate is set. Drizzle extra chocolate on top if you'd like.
- Store in the fridge up to one week in an airtight container, or in the freezer up to three months.
