Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup coconut butter
  • 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

Instructions

  • 1. Combine coconut butter, shredded coconut, vanilla and maple syrup in a medium sized bowl (instructions for coconut butter in the notes section)
  • 2. Mix all ingredients well. I like to use my hands to really work it together. It may seem tough at first, but as the coconut butter warms up it will mix easier.
  • 3. Using a tablespoon take scoops of the coconut mixture, roll into a ball, then flatten in to an egg shape. Place on a plate lined with wax paper.
  • 4. Repeat this process with remaining coconut mixture.
  • 5. If your coconut mixture is warm from mixing place them in the freezer for ~5-10 minutes to firm up.
  • 6. In a separate small bowl combine chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave for 2 minutes, stopping every 30 seconds to stir and avoid burning.
  • 7. Take firmed coconut eggs and dip in the chocolate to cover. Repeat with remaining eggs. Sprinkle with coconut or sprinkles if desired.
  • 8. Allow chocolate to cool fully, I like to place them in the fridge for ~10 minutes.
  • 9. Bit into them and enjoy! Store in the fridge for ~1 week, otherwise freeze them for later!

Notes

To make coconut butter simple place ~2 cups of unsweetened coconut flakes or shredded coconut into a food processor and process for 5-10 minutes. This can take a while, but at the end the mixture will essentially be a liquid. It will get there! Allow it to firm up in a container to become more buttery consistency. This will make ~2/3 cup coconut butter.
Feel free to use whatever chocolate you like! Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or white chocolate!
