Method:
  • In a medium bowl, combine nut butter, coconut sugar and salt. Stir until combined – the mixture should be crumbly.
  • If the mixture is too wet, add one or two tbsp. of almond meal and mix in well until you achieve the desired crumbliness.
  • Separate mixture into 8 parts, and roll into egg-shaped balls. Place in freezer for 30 minutes or until firm.
  • Separately in a small saucepan, combine coconut oil and cocoa powder over a low heat. Stir until well combined. Add 80g Loving Earth chocolate. Continue to stir over low heat until completely melted.
  • Remove from heat and place safely near your workspace. Allow to cool slightly for 15 minutes.
  • Place eggs in liquid chocolate, one egg at a time. You can use a spoon to cover eggs more thoroughly with chocolate mixture.
  • Place on a tray lined with baking paper. Freeze for 30 minutes.
