These Vanilla Ice Easter Eggs are one of my favourite Easter treats to make with the kids. I love how they look just like real eggs and kids always get excited when they see them!
They are quick, easy and no-bake, which is always good when you have younger ones or groups. This is a fun one to make in the classroom as well and you can package them up nicely for gifts.
- A pack of hollow chocolate eggs
- 1 3/4 cup desiccated coconut
- Yellow food colouring
- 1 cup icing sugar
- 1/2 can of condensed milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- Pinch of cream of tartar
- To start with, you need to unwrap the chocolate eggs and separate them into two halves. You can do this using a sharp pairing knife- dip it in boiling water if you need extra help. (This is a job for the adults though so if you are cooking with a class come with the eggs already divided.)
- In a mixing bowl, combine your coconut, icing sugar, condensed milk, vanilla, and cream of tartar with a spoon (or your hands!) until they are fully mixed.
- Then, remove 1/5 of the mixture and place it in another bowl, adding a few drops of yellow food colouring. Mix this until it’s a lovely, bright yellow.
- Take a tablespoon of the white mixture and roll it into an egg shape. Then, GENTLY push it down into the chocolate shell. Take a pinch of the yellow, roll it into a small ball, press it flat and place it in the middle, like the yolk.
Pop these in the fridge for two hours to set the mixture and they are ready to eat!
