Healthy Vegan Easter Eggs
Making your own healthier vegan Easter eggs is as simple as can be! You only need a few natural ingredients to create the basic recipe which you can customise to your heart's desire by playing with different shapes and fillings.
“Making your own, or another family member’s, chocolate egg is much simpler than it sounds. I make them every year with my daughter, it’s such fun. You don’t even need to buy a fancy mould as you might have something egg-shaped around the house.
"We use an old plastic Kinder eggshell in our house! My recipe is for a vegan egg but you can use regular dairy chocolate too. You can always play around with surprise filling as well, such as peanut butter, popping candy or a rich chocolate ganache.” - Bettina
