Homemade Cadbury Eggs – Happy Easter!!

Here is a GREAT homemade Easter treat!!

Homemade Cadbury Eggs

Makes 6-8 eggs


½ cup all natural dark chocolate chips or chocolate pieces

1 ½ tsp coconut oil


1 egg white

¼ cup pure honey

2 tsp pure vanilla extract

pinch of sea salt

Egg mold (you can get these at craft stores, party stores, kitchen stores, online, etc.)


Put your honey in a small pot over medium low heat. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 2-3 minutes, stirring often. Add in the vanilla extract and the pinch of sea salt. Stir until combined.

Whip your egg white with a hand or stand mixer until peaks form. Once peaks form, slowly drizzle the honey mixture in the egg whites while the mixer is still whipping. Keep whipping until all the honey is blended and the mixture is very creamy. Set aside.

In a double boiler, melt the chocolate and coconut oil until chocolate is melted and smooth. If you don’t have a double boiler, use a large skillet filled with water. Place a smaller pot in the water and melt your chocolate/coconut oil in the smaller pot.

Using a small spoon, spoon your chocolate in the egg mold.  Using the spoon, “paint” up the sides of the mold. Once all the eggs are covered in chocolate, stick the mold in the freezer for 5 minutes. Take it back out and “paint” the mold again with the chocolate. Stick in the freezer for another 5 minutes.

Take it back out and fill the chocolates with the egg white/honey mixture. If you have leftover chocolate, drizzle some around all the edges of the chocolate eggs so they will mold together easier. Fold the molds together and place in the freezer for at least an hour. Undo the molds and enjoy your homemade eggs!

Store these in the freezer or fridge. Even if you store them in the freezer, the insides will stay soft and creamy!

Thanks to Primally Inspired for this great recipe!
