I had so much fun making these with my nieces. We wanted to do some ahead of Easter, so the girls could see if they would be something they wanted to make for their parents Easter Baskets. They are delicious! They were much like Almond Joys, so if you like them, you will love these! Make sure you measure the ingredients right, and they come out perfect. Don't eyeball it, or they may be sticky. One of my nieces wasn't watching and measured wrong the first time around and hers were sticky. We added the right amount of cream cheese and confectionary sugar and they came out perfect. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe and your other egg recipes with us Linda. They are all excellent! We will be using them for our baskets for years to come.
My son loves Almond Joys, so I made up a batch of these for his Easter Basket. I made the eggs and dipped them in chocolate, then rolled them in crushed almonds. He was thrilled! I managed to keep a few for myself, and hid them so I can have them when I get a craving for chocolate. They are awesome!
Amazing! The best Almond Joys ever. This made a huge amount. I froze half of the coconut mixture as I ran out of chocolate. Just as great the 2nd time. Thanks for the fantastic treat.
I made these to go with some other things I made for my parents Easter Baskets. These were delicious! I ate so many of them I had to make another batch to have enough! I topped them with Easter Sprinkles for a little added color. So cute!
I thought these eggs were really good but next time I will use coconut flavoring instead of vanilla....mine weren't very coconut-ee. I added kitchen wax as well for ease in dipping.
I made up a tray of these for our Easter dessert table. I decorated the tops with pastel Easter sprinkles. The kids loved them and so did us old timers!
I made up a batch of these to bring into work to share with my co-workers after a grueling audit. Everyone must have had a sweet tooth because these disappeared in no time flat! I will be making these every year for Easter, but will also be making them into balls and added to my trays at Christmas time. These are so delicious! Even better than an Almond Joy. I also made Linda's Buttercream Eggs and Linda's Peanut Butter Easter Eggs to go with these for variety. All were amazing!
I made these up and froze them so I can make Easter baskets for my family next month. I love the fact that these freeze so well! These remind me so much of Almond Joys, only better! I can't wait to see everyone's faces when they bite into these eggs!
I just got done making these delicious eggs and they are awesome! They came out so good. I can't wait to pass these out for Easter! Thanks Linda
My daughter and I made these today for Easter Baskets. We also tried Linda's other egg recipes and they all came out great, but this one if my personal favorite! My daughter was covered with powdered sugar, but she didn't care. She was eating as much as she was making. Fun to make if you want an afternoon of togetherness with your loved ones!
