Make Your Own Easter Eggs                                                                                           

Hmmm Chocolate.   Need I say anything more? Easter. It’s all about the chocolate ha! ha!

Making your own Easter eggs and chocolate treats is much easier than you’d imagine. It’s also a great activity for the kids to get involved in during the Easter hols. 
 
You don’t need any fancy equipment just a few ingredients, a pan, bowl and water, 20 mins or so,  a few hours in the freezer chilling and boom chocolate heaven! 
 
Naturally refined sugar, dairy and gluten free. 
 
To make these eggs I used my chocolate recipe here.  As with my chocolate recipe you can pimp these up any additional fruit or ingredient you like.  I used these egg moulds but there are a wide range and variety out there and this recipe will work with most.  Happy Easter and enjoy your chocolate making and eating! 

 MAKE YOUR OWN EASTER EGGS

 A luxurious, rich pure chocolate Easter Egg naturally gluten, grain and dairy free.  

INGREDIENTS

This will make approx. 24 egg halves or 12 full chocolate eggs.  

  • 220g x raw cacao butter 
  • 1 x tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 150g x cacao powder 
  • 175g x 100% maple Syrup 
  • 2 x tablespoons of raw honey
  • 2 x generous pinches of Maldon/good quality sea or himalayan salt

TO MAKE 

  1. Gently melt the cacao butter and coconut oil in a bowl, placed in a pan of simmering water, making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water.
  2. When melted gently stir in the cacao powder, honey and maple syrup using a spatular until you have an even thick chocolate consistency and add the salt.
  3. Pour into your egg moulds baking paper and place in the freezer for 3 hours. 
  4. Take out of the freezer and pop the chocolate out of the moulds and enjoy.

Notes:  This chocolate will last for up to 3 days and is best kept covered or wrapped in foil or baking paper, for best results over long periods of time store in a fridge. It will also freeze covered for up to one month.
