My all time favorite Easter candy are Chocolate Marshmallow Eggs! With this chocolate marshmallow egg recipe, your nut allergic child can now enjoy a piece of Easter without the worry.
My son has a peanut allergy and can’t eat most candy that is sold around the holidays. When companies make candies in bulk for the holidays, most of it gets manufactured in the same plant and the candies are all exposed to peanuts and tree nuts.
While I was at the store this week we came across these AWESOME marshmallows!
They look like Jumbo Eggs..
On the bag of these fabulous marshmallows there was a recipe for chocolate peanut butter eggs, while they sounded super yummy we can’t make them with peanut butter due to the nut allergies in my son.
So here is what you will need to make this peanut and tree nut free Chocolate Marshmallow Eggs Recipe:
*Dislcosure | Ingredients may vary in each product and may not always be nut free. Please check the ingredients each time to ensure that they are in fact “nut free”.
1 Bag of Jumbo Egg marshmallows ( We found them by the Easter Candy in the grocery store)
Bakers Dipping Chocolate
Skewers or a fork
I purchased a cup of Bakers Dipping Chocolate, the bars would work just as easily, and melted it according to directions in the microwave.
Poke the marshmallow with a skewer, dip it in the chocolate and place the chocolate egg on a piece of wax paper.
Decorate with sprinkles or whatever you would like!
To harden the chocolate just place the tray into the fridge for 15-20 minutes and they will turn out just like this
They turned out SOO good and my son was happy to have a chocolate egg that was safe for him
