- 2 tbsp. cocoa powder
- 80g Loving Earth Chocolate: Creamy
- 2 tsp. desiccated coconut
- 1 tsp. almond meal

- 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.
You can give the eggs a second coat of chocolate if you want a thicker outer layer, and freeze for another 30 minutes. This is optional.
Store in refrigerator.
