Fill your Easter basket with these delicious, no-bake, allergy-friendly Chocolate-covered, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough eggs.
It’s hard to resist these vegan Cookie Dough Easter Eggs, which is why they are a perfect choice for Easter dessert ….. Cookie dough + chocolate = the best combination!
This Cookie Dough Easter Egg is no stranger here at Allergylicious, it’s just taken on a new shape…the Easter Egg. And since Easter is only a few days away, I decided to turn my allergy-friendly & vegan Cookie Dough Cup into a treat that would make the Easter bunny jealous. That’s right, no one will care about what’s he’s got in his basket when you have Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough eggs to hand out.
No-Bake Cookie Dough Easter Eggs
These bite-sized, chocolate-covered treats are easy to make, yet incredibly decadent! Although I wouldn’t call them healthy, they are vegan, gluten-free & nut-free which makes them the perfect dessert for anyone with food allergies, sensitivities or for those who follow a vegan lifestyle. Why shouldn’t we be able to splurge every once in a while too, right? Especially during the holidays with everyone else.
Chocolate candy lollipop candy molds aren’t that expensive and are fun to bring out and use during the holidays. It’s just nice to have some fun molds on hand, even if it’s just to make shapes out of melted chocolate. But for these Easter treats, we’ll be adding an extra step….a layer of edible cookie dough in the center! YUM!
3 Step Cookie Dough Eggs
Remember when I said that these were easy to make? Well, they only require 3 simple steps.
- Simply melt vegan chocolate (we love Enjoy Life Foods), coat the bottom of the mold then freeze.
- Make cookie dough (or if PB is your thing, make our SunButter or Oreo Truffle filling instead) & press a small amount on top of the hardened chocolate.
- Cover with melted chocolate and freeze 5-10 minutes.
Sooooo, what are you waiting for? You have some Chocolate Cookie Dough Easter Eggs to make.
- 1/2 cup vegan butter, softened (Earth Balance, soy free)
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar (or 1/2 cup cane sugar + 1/4 cup coconut sugar)
- 3/4 cup gluten-free flour of choice
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 bag vegan chocolate chips
- 4-6 tablespoons water
- candy mold + lollipop sticks
- Melt 1/4 cup of chocolate chips in a small bowl and stir to make smooth. Pour up to 1 tablespoon of melted chocolate into each mold and push up the sides to coat the entire mold. (Amount of chocolate will vary based on the size of the mold.) Place in freezer.
- In a medium bowl, cream together butter and sugar(s). Stir in flours, salt, vanilla and 1 cup of chocolate chips. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, stirring in between until the dough reaches desired consistency.
- Remove hardened chocolate from freezer and add a small scoop of dough on top, pressing into the sides (but leave room on the top for more chocolate). Add your lollipop stick now, if using.
- Melt another 1/4 cup of chocolate chips then pour onto the cookie dough layer to create the base of your candy.
- Freeze up to 10 minutes, then pop out of molds and refrigerate until ready to share.
