Vegan Raspberry Truffle Eggs
It is fun to make your own Easter candy at home, and that way you know exactly what goes into it! One of my favorites growing up was raspberry cream truffle eggs, so I like to make my own healthier version now! These are always a big hit at Easter, and they happen to be vegan and gluten free!

- Combine all of the filling ingredients but jam and water over a double boiler, and whisk until smooth.
- Whisk in the jam and water until smooth. Place in the freezer for about 15-20 minutes until it is firm enough to scoop. Scoop into 12 balls, rolling them with your hands and shaping them into eggs. Place on a parchment lined tray, and place back into the freezer until firm, about 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, melt the dark chocolate in a double boiler, and whisk until smooth.
- Once the filling has firmed up, dip each chocolate into the dark chocolate, being sure to let the excess drain off, and place back onto the tray (I like to set mine on a fork to allow it to drain better). Once they are all dipped, set them in the freezer until hardened.
Store any leftover truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
