HOW TO MAKE THIS COCONUT CREAM CHOCOLATE EASTER EGGS RECIPE

STEP ONE: Use a medium-sized mixing bowl and either a standup or hand mixer to mix together cream cheese, butter, and coconut extract until it’s smooth and creamy.

STEP TWO: Beat in 2 cups of powdered sugar. Beat in the remaining 2 cups of powdered sugar, stirring with a sturdy wooden spoon when a mixture becomes too thick to use a hand beater (a standing mixer will beat everything just fine).

STEP THREE: Stir or beat in the flaked coconut.

STEP FOUR: Cover the mixing bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

STEP FIVE: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

STEP SIX: Use a cookie scoop or a tablespoon to scoop the cream cheese/coconut mixture into balls.

STEP SEVEN: Mold the ball into an egg shape and place it on a baking sheet.

PRO TIP: Dust your hands with powdered sugar or drop a ball into a bit of powdered sugar to make it easier to work with.

STEP EIGHT: Continue molding your eggs until the mixture has all been used. 

STEP NINE: Place the baking sheet into the freezer and chill the eggs for at least 1 hour.

STEP TEN: In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave the milk chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon of shortening in 30-second increments, stirring in between, until the chocolate is melted and smooth. 

PRO TIP: Stop heating when there are still some solid pieces of chocolate just stir those until they are melted and smooth.

STEP ELEVEN: Remove the eggs from the freezer. Using a fork, dip one egg into the melted chocolate at a time and flip them to fully coat. Lift the egg from out of the chocolate with a fork and gently tap on the side of a bowl to allow the excess chocolate to drip off.

STEP TWELVE: Place each dipped egg onto a clean sheet of parchment paper or a cooling rack.

STEP THIRTEEN: Place the dipped eggs into the refrigerator and set them aside for about 15 minutes.

PRO TIP: If you’re going to add sprinkles or candy on top of your eggs, make sure to do it before the chocolate hardens!

STEP FOURTEEN: Microwave the semi-sweet chocolate chips and the remaining tablespoon of shortening in 30-second increments until they are melted and smooth.

STEP FIFTEEN: Scoop melted chocolate into a plastic baggy or piping bag. Snip a tiny corner off of the bag and drizzle in a zig-zag motion over the chocolate-covered eggs. Allow the chocolate to set for about 5 minutes.

STEP SIXTEEN: Serve the eggs immediately or keep them in an airtight container until they are ready to serve.

STORAGE

IN THE REFRIGERATOR: You can keep your eggs in the fridge for about 1 to 2 months in an air-safe container. Note that the freezer might cause some discoloration of the chocolate. Before you serve your eggs, thaw them in the fridge. 

IN THE FREEZER: You can freeze your eggs in an airtight freezer-safe container for up to 3 months. Note that the chocolate may have discoloration. Thaw them in the fridge before you try to eat them!
