Where can I find canned coconut cream?

Canned coconut cream is available at many grocery stores! However, if it is not available at a grocery store near you, you can use canned coconut milk to get the cream. Simply purchase a can of full fat canned coconut milk and place it in the refrigerator overnight. The cream will separate from the milk when chilled. The next day, simply spoon the cream out of the can (it will be sitting on top) and use it in the recipe!

Coconut Cream Chocolate Eggs

Prep Time 30 minutes
Fridge Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 30 minutes

Equipment

  • 1 silicone 8-count egg mold

Ingredients

  • 6 oz semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips (I use dairy free)
  • 3 oz white chocolate chips (I use dairy free)
  • 2/3 cup canned coconut cream (just the cream, not the milk)
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

Instructions

  • Add the regular chocolate chips to a microwave safe glass dish and heat until melted, stirring every 30 seconds to avoid burning (or melt on the stovetop using the double boiler method)
  • Coat the bottom of the egg molds completely with the melted chocolate. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.
  • While the chocolate shells hardens, make the coconut cream filling: melt the white chocolate chips using the same method as before. Once melted, remove from the heat and stir in the coconut cream and unsweetened coconut shreds. Mix until well combined.
  • Remove the chocolate eggs from the fridge once the chocolate is hardened. Fill each mold with the coconut cream filling then place the chocolate eggs back in the fridge for 15 minutes to allow the white chocolate filling to set.
  • After 15 minutes, remove the chocolate eggs from the fridge and top with the remaining melted chocolate (you will likely need to re melt the regular chocolate again, if it has hardened).
  • Pllace the eggs back in the fridge for 30 minutes, or until completely hardened. Once hardened, remove from the fridge and enjoy! If slicing the eggs, let them sit for a little while at room temperature before slicing. I recommend running hot water over your knife blade before slicing. Store leftovers in the fridge!

Notes

Since silicone molds are quite flexible, I recommend keeping the egg mold on a small tray while making the eggs.

    1. Hi! Oz stands for ounces! One ounce (oz) is the same as 28.3495 grams! Hope that helps!
