INGREDIENTS:
1/2 cup Almond Butter
1 cup Almond Flour
1/8 tsp Sea Salt
3 1/2 ozs Dark Chocolate (at least 70% cacao)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a bowl, combine the almond butter and sea salt. Add half of the almond flour and mix well. Continue to add remaining almond flour 1 tbsp at a time until you reach a thick, cookie-dough like consistency. The consistency should be thick enough to mold with your hands. The amount of almond flour required will vary depending on original consistency and oiliness of your almond butter.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Use a tablespoon to measure out even amounts of dough and drop them onto the baking sheet. Then form each dollop into an egg shape using your hands. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for at least 20 minutes to harden while you prepare the chocolate.
  3. Fill one large pot with water and place a smaller pot inside. Bring to a boil then reduce to lowest heat. Ensure no water is able to escape into the smaller pot! Add the dark chocolate to the smaller pot and stir continuously until melted. Remove from stovetop.
  4. Line another baking sheet with wax or parchment paper. Take one egg on the top of the prongs of a fork (do not pierce it) and run it through the melted chocolate. Tip the pot to one side to create a deeper pool of chocolate for dipping and have a spoon handy to spoon chocolate over the egg in hard to reach places. Lift the egg out of the chocolate and let the excess chocolate drip off.
  5. Once the chocolate has stopped dripping, transfer to the baking sheet by tipping the fork vertically until the egg slides off onto the sheet. Use a spatula to help guide it off if it sticks. Repeat with all eggs and then place the baking sheet back into the freezer to harden.
  6. If you have chocolate left over, feel free to do a second coat after 20 minutes in the freezer. Enjoy!

Notes:

No Almond Butter – Use peanut butter or sunflower seed butter.
Leftovers – Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to seven days. Freeze for up to three months.
