Ingredients

All of the ingredients needed to make sugar free easter eggs.

Powdered Monk Fruit / Erythritol Sweetener – There are so many different low carb sweeteners on the market these days, it can be overwhelming to choose one. Well, coming from someone who has tried A LOT of types and brands, I can honestly say my favourite is the erythritol monk fruit blend. ‘So Nourished’ has a powdered erythritol monk fruit blend that is excellent, or you can try ‘Lakanto’s’ erythritol monk fruit blend.

Lakanto’s doesn’t come in powdered form but only takes a minute to blend it into powdered form. I use an old, clean coffee grinder and it works like a charm! I often blend a whole bunch and store it in an air tight bag for later use.

How to make Sugar Free Easter Eggs

Inner Layer

You’ll need to start with room temperature cream cheese and butter so that they are easier to work with.

Begin by whipping the heaving whipping cream into firm peaks using a stand mixer with whisk attachment, or a an electric beater. Scrape the whipped cream and set aside.

Bowl of whipped cream.

Change out the whisk attachment for the paddle and whip the butter until it becomes very white. This could take five minutes if your butter begins with a strong yellow colour. Mix in the cream cheese and beat well, until fully combined. Beat in the powdered sweetener then stir in vanilla. Fold in the whipped cream.

Two egg shaped cheesecake balls.

You should get about 18-20 eggs. Freeze for 30 minutes.

Chocolate Layer

Bring a medium pot of water to boil and chop the chocolate into a fine crumble. Place a medium heat safe bowl on top of the pot and reduce the heat so that the water is simmering.

Chopped chocolate.

Melt the coconut oil in the bowl and then toss in the chocolate.

Whisk the chocolate around constantly until it has completely melted, then remove from the heat. Stir in sea salt and powdered sweetener.

Dip ’em

Remove the baking sheet from the freezer and place beside the bowl of melted chocolate. Place an egg onto a fork and dip it into the melted chocolate. I find using a spoon to spoon extra chocolate over the egg works great, or you can just flip the egg around in the chocolate.

Remove the egg from the chocolate with a fork and hover over the bowl for a few moments to ensure all the extra chocolate drips off. Place onto a baking sheet lined with fresh wax paper.

Four eggs with chocolate coating.

Repeat for all of the eggs, then double dip them until all of the chocolate has been used up.

Optional Decorating

Using a beater and a small bowl, whip butter until smooth then mix in a little bit of powdered sweetener. Beat in heavy whipping cream, vanilla and then the remaining powdered sweetener.

Stir in your food colouring of choice until you are happy with the colour, then scrape into a piping bag. Decorate as you like!

      This recipe sounds so nice. I find it hard to let go of real sugar as I really can’t find an alternative that suits my taste. Well, apart from honey. I love honey and could put it everywhere but I understand it does not work everywhere. Still, I think it’s so great that there are more and more sweetener choices on the market, as to many people cutting off sugar is not just an option but a necessity.

      • I totally agree. I love how many substitutes are now available for people who can’t have sugar. This honey sub is very exciting!
