Coconut Easter Eggs and Peanut Butter Easter Eggs


Why not try making your own Chocolate Easter Eggs this year!  I made these last Easter and wanted to share the recipe with you all.

They are incredibly easy to make. Just be sure to get a couple of Silicone Easter Egg Molds ahead of time to make them. I purchased my molds at Home Sense and Winners but you can check out Amazon too.


2 c Organic Icing Sugar

1/2 c Butter

1 c Finely Shredded Coconut 

1 tsp Vanilla Extract


1.  Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix to form a large bowl.

2. Roll into individual oval shapes according to the size of your mold.

Chocolate Coating:


Milk Chocolate Melts or a bag of Hershey's Chocolate Chips or a few of your favorite dark chocolate bars and 1 tblps of coconut oil to melt together in a double boiler. 


Chocolate Shells:

1.  Place the melts or chocolate chips or broken up chocolate bar pieces into the top of the double boiler and add coconut oil. Heat until mixture is melted and stir gently. Then coat each silicone mold with chocolate making sure to evenly coat. 

2.  Place in freezer to harden and then add the filling mixture and press gently into the mold. Add another layer of chocolate on top and place in freezer again to harden. 



To Make Peanut Butter Filling: just cream together 1/2 c organic peanut butter mixed with 1/2 c of organic icing sugar and form into a ball and fill chocolate shells. Again, place in freezer to harden and top with melted chocolate and let cool again in the freezer.

Another option:  Fill the chocolate coated eggs with ready made chocolate eggs and let the kids smash them to release all the eggs. (I do recommend doing this in a bowl and just using a spoon to smash them.) They will probably make a big mess otherwise. 


Even though they look messy, they turned out great! This is how they came out of the freezer, next time I am going to take a flat metal spatula and swipe over the top of the chocolate before placing them in the freezer to harden.

I wanted to show you how they will look if you don't do that. This was my first time making them and since they all got eaten quickly, they were definitely a win/win.

These are so good! They are loaded with calories so eat these in moderation if you can.
