Coconut cream eggs are a star during Easter or even on a regular day! My kids love this yummy treat and are always insisting to help whenever I’m making this. It takes only a few ingredients to make and no baking required. Feel free to experiment, you can put almonds, or replace the coconut with peanut butter, there are no rules! I personally love coconut and my kids too so coconut it is!
Today, my youngest has some friends coming over. He never stops bragging about this coconut cream eggs to his friends, so he asked me to make it for them. How can I say no? I’m sure his friends will enjoy it as much as we do. And I made extra just in case.
8 oz softened cream cheese
1 tablespoon butter, softened
4 cups of powdered sugar
1 cup of coconut, shredded
1 (12 oz.) bag melting chocolate chips
