Chocolate Coconut Eggs

Hi everyone! I just love Easter time and all things Easter-food related – give me a hot cross bun and a cup of tea any day! With chocolate being a main feature in most Easter treats, it’s been my challenge this year to try and come up with some recipes that still feel like treats, but are a little bit healthier. And in comes the Chocolate Coconut Egg. This recipe uses flavours from some of my favourite Bounce balls, like caramel and almond butter, to create the most delicious and rich, but still healthy, Easter treat. I hope you love!
