Main Ingredients Needed for Homemade Coconut Cream Filled Eggs
- marshmallow cream
- shortening (such as Crisco)
- chocolate melting candy (such as Wilton's)
Recipe Tips & Notes
- I bought this silicone egg mold (it's Prime) just for fun, but you really don't need it. You can easily form the coconut filling into an egg shape by hand and then dip it in the chocolate.
- My husband strongly felt that these needed almonds. So I'll leave that up to you ☺️.

- 14 ounces sweetened shredded coconut
- 6 tablespoons shortening (like Crisco, not butter flavored)
- 1/2 cup marshmallow cream
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 10 ounces chocolate melting candy
- Use an electric mixer to whisk together the shortening, marshmallow cream, and powdered sugar.
- Mix in the shredded coconut.
- Shape two tablespoons of the coconut cream into an egg shape and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat with remaining coconut cream filling.
- Place the filling in the freezer for 5 minutes.
- Melt the chocolate according to the directions on the package. Use a fork to dip each egg in the chocolate, and allow the excess to drip back into the bowl.
- Place each egg back on the parchment paper and let the chocolate cool to harden.
