Orange Spiced Easter Eggs.

I'm not really a big Easter egg fan, but I suppose you can say the raw cross bites I made earlier inspired me to create these delectable treats- orange cinnamon spiced chocolate eggs.

I know they don't look as festive as the wrapping of commercially sold ones, but hey, I only conceptualised these five minutes before I made 'em so I think they're pretty good. I figured, if I'm making raw cross bites, may as well infuse their flavours in another traditional Easter treat, right? Right. So, they've got some flavours present in hot cross buns- fruity and citrusy with a little bit of spice. They don't take a long time to make either, so that's a plus.

Oh yeah, they're filled with almond butter too for extra goodness. And now that I think about it, you could probably roll these on orange/lemon/lime zest to make 'em prettier and more festive. 

Orange Spiced Easter Eggs

Chocolate coating:
Around 1/3 block of dark chocolate, melted OR one recipe raw chocolate
2T honey
2t cinnamon
1t coconut oil
Juice of one orange
Zest of half an orange

12 Medjool dates
Almond butter

To make the chocolate coating, simply combine everything in a bowl. Adjust according to taste. 

To make the eggs, carefully remove the pit from the date ensuring that the date itself doesn't fall apart. Fill with a little bit of almond butter, roll into an egg like shape, and coat with chocolate. Freeze until ready to eat, and decorate as you please. Enjoy and have a great Easter :)
