An easy Easter treat that is super easy to make and will satisfy your chocolate craving! These Caramel Filled Chocolate Eggs are filled with a vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, easy homemade caramel and then decorated with spring colored sprinkles!
Today’s debate: do I make peanut butter filled eggs or do I make caramel filled eggs? Decisions, decisions. Obviously caramel won and boy am I glad I went with caramel instead of peanut butter for these delicious chocolate Easter candies! They are uh-mazing. If you like peanut butter filled eggs, be sure to check out my White Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs . BUT for all you chocolate peanut butter egg lovers, the vegan caramel sauce includes peanut butter so actually the caramel has an underlying peanut butter taste to make these eggs the best of both candy egg worlds! 😉
The dairy-free, vegan caramel is so dang delicious- try not to eat it all before you stuff your chocolate eggs with it. It’s definitely an eat-by-the-spoonful sauce. And despite how intricate it sounds to make your own caramel, I promise this recipe could not be any easier. No candy thermometer needed and in fact it only takes about 5 minutes!
You can see how gooey the caramel is- I mean, I cannot stress enough how delicious this dairy-free caramel is. I adapted the caramel from the 5-Minute Magic Caramel Sauce from Pinch of Yum. I love their version, but I just wanted to make my own- so I’ve been testing my own dairy-free caramel recipes and this is the one! The chocolate eggs are made with just 2 ingredients, dark chocolate chips and coconut oil. I used this silicone egg mold that I got on Amazon and they are only $11 so definitely worth it if you want the egg shape. Otherwise you could probably make these into cups.
