Cherry Coconut Easter Eggs (Gluten-Free)
35 mins (prep 5, cooking 30)
6 ingredients
36 servings
Recipe from Nestle Australia website and also shown in March 2010 Australian Coeliac Magazine- featured as the cover recipe. I'm personally not a fan of wont be using it in my eggs. The photo on the site looks delicious - check it out on the link given below Use gluten-free ingredients if any variations are made to suit gf diet. Cooking time does not include refrigeration . This recipe uses Australian Metric measuring cups. 1 cup =250 if you are using US cups then I would measure in an extra 1/2 to 3/4 cup of coconut. Recipe makes 36 larger or up to 50 smaller eggs. We make the smaller size as the eggs are very rich for little tummies. You can see my eldest daughter Nadene making the eggs in the Kids Cooking Forum- original recipe here -
