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 ☺️.
