How to make your own Easter eggs
First of all, you're going to need a silicone Easter egg mould like this one. If time isn't on your side, then a mini muffin tray or mini cupcake holders should work just fine too (although, they won't be egg shaped of course).
Making your own Easter eggs couldn't be any easier. You'll simply layer your mould with chocolate, fill it with your chosen centre and then fill with more chocolate on top. Each layer will be hardened before moving onto the next layer by placing the moulds in the freezer for 10 minutes at a time.
What chocolate should you use to make low carb Easter eggs?
If you want to make these Easter eggs low carb & Primal friendly, then you'll need to use a dark chocolate (at least 90% dark) with no added sugar. If you're new to dark chocolate and find it too bitter, start with an 85% dark chocolate - it'll be slightly less intense than 90%. Or, try adding 1 tsp stevia to your melted chocolate.
Chocolate is made from ground cocoa beans, which grow on cocoa trees in Central and South America. Most supermarkets have a variety of brands and strengths, but ideally, the closer we can get to 100%, the more beneficial the chocolate will be.
So whether you're a nut butter fan, Ferrero Rocher lover or simply adore a simple filled chocolate Easter egg, pick your favourite from below and have a delicious sugar-free Easter this year! Just make sure you opt for a natural peanut & hazelnut butter - it's always best to check the ingredients.
