Vegan Easter eggs


It's very nearly Easter and I think most of us are also on our 2 week break to celebrate. I've got a super simple recipe for some yummy vegan creme eggs. If you've ever tried to buy the free from versions of these you'll know you're looking at a pack of 3 for nearly £10 on most sites and almost £3 an egg if sold individually on others.



I'm not having that! I already had icing sugar and turmeric in my food cupboard so I only needed 2 bars of chocolate from my local superstore. That's less than £3 for 6 eggs on this occasion!

I hope you enjoy this recipe!

Start by melting the dairy free chocolate in a bowl over some boiling water in a saucepan. The best and oldest way of melting chocolate is my favourite way, I'm prone to burning my choc if I use the microwave! Please mind the steam!

Melted chocolate

Get your chosen moulds, I recommend silicon moulds as you will have far less trouble getting your eggs out with one of these. Will kindly let me use his for this recipe.


While your first layer is chilling in the freezer, you'll need to make your white and yellow fondant filling. 

Use icing sugar and water to make a thick paste, separate a small amount into another bowl and add some turmeric, (add as much as you need to make the wonderful yellow colour we all know love!) Turmeric doesn't really have much of a taste so don't be nervous about using this spice in these yummy eggs.


Cover the fondant in more melted chocolate and pop back into the freezer until they're nice and solid.

In the meantime, any left over chocolate can be used in other moulds you may have in the cupboard! Here's some more chocolates I couldn't resist making:


When you're happy that your chocolate eggs are solid, pop them out and sample your amazing work. They are delicious (if I may say so myself!) 


Please do let me know if you try out this easy recipe for Easter. Tag me on Twitter and Instagram if you have any pics to show off!
