Little Peter Cotton Tail, hoppin’ around the bunny trail…hippity, hoppity, Easter’s on it’s way!
How’s my singing voice?
On point, I’m sure.
Happy Good Friday y’all.
I was out and about yesterday and a friend asked what I was doing for Easter.
I was suddenly transported back to Easter as a child.
My parent’s, sister, and I would all pile in the suburban, head to church, then rush back to the house where we would have a pool party/Easter egg hunt with my entire extended family.
I looooooved those days.
Now I’m pretty much like, church, brunch, nap, maybe a movie?
There’s one thing I can always count on around Easter.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs.
I swear, the bigger the egg, the more peanut butter.
We are making a paleo friendly version today.
Nuts have been giving me allergies lately, so I am trying to steer clear for a bit and see how my body adjusts.
Thankfully I have my beloved coconut butter, which makes up the filling in these suckers
Then we do a little magic chocolate covered shell dance and
See what I did there? 😉
- For the filling:
- 10 large Medjool dates, pitted and soaked overnight in water
- ½ c. coconut butter, slightly melted
- 2 T. coconut flour
- For the chocolate coating:
- 3 T. unsweetened cocoa powder
- 4 T. pure maple syrup
- 3 T. melted coconut oil
- For the drizzle:
- coconut butter, melted
- For the filling, place the soaked dates along with their soaking water in a large food processor and process on high until smooth.
- Place 4 tablespoons of the date puree into a small mixing bowl and mix with the coconut butter and coconut flour until combined.
- Form the filling into egg shapes and place on a sheet of parchment paper.
- Place in the freezer for 45 minutes or until frozen.
- In a small mixing bowl, mix all of the ingredients for the chocolate coating together until smooth.
- Dip each frozen egg into the coating mixture until completely coated.
- Place the eggs back in the freezer until the chocolate is frozen.
- Take the eggs out of the freezer, drizzle each with melted coconut butter and let dry.
