Are butterfinger bites healthy?

Butterfinger easter eggs are made with just four wholesome ingredients! When it comes to making a healthier dessert option, quality of ingredients is what is most important! Let’s take a look:

  • Peanut butter: I like to use organic peanut butter that is simply made of peanuts and sea salt. Some peanut butters can contain hydrogenated oils and added sugar.
  • Chocolate: I love using Hu Kitchen as their chocolate is made with high quality ingredients and contain no refined sugars. They make both grass-fed milk chocolate and dairy-free dark chocolate! (You can use my code “danishealthyeats” to save on any order!)
  • Maple syrup or honey: These are lightly sweetened with either maple syrup or honey, both of which contain antioxidant properties and make a great option compared to refined sugar.
  • Corn flake cereal: This is the tough one – it’s hard to find an organic corn flake cereal that isn’t loaded with sugar. I like the brand Nature’s Path Organic corn flakes as it’s made with organic corn and sweetened with pear juice!

How to make butterfinger chocolate easter eggs

Equipment

Steps

  • First, start by melting the chocolate. Then add a small amount of chocolate to the bottom of your mold, making sure to spread it out so it covers the bottom completely and pull it up the sides of each crevice a bit. Pop in the freezer for a few minutes to allow it to harden.
  • Next, make the filling. In a bowl, combine all of the filling ingredients, stirring in the cereal last. Next, add some of the filling to each one.
  • Add the remaining chocolate on top of each one, spreading it out to cover the fillings. Finally, place the mold back in the freezer for an hour or so before removing them from the molds and placing in an air-tight container.

Can you make these without an easter egg mold?

Yes! You can make these in a muffin tin and they will come out in the shape of a Reese’s! I recommend using cupcake liners if you don’t own a silicone muffin tin!

If you do want a good easter egg mold, this is the one I used. I love having it on hand for fun festive recipes!

Ingredients
  

Butterfinger filling

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 3-4 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup crushed corn flake cereal
  • good pinch of sea salt

Chocolate coating

  • 1 1/3 cups chocolate chips

Instructions
 

  • Melt the chocolate: You start by adding a small amount of chocolate to the bottom of your mold, making sure to spread it out so it covers the bottom completely and pull it up the sides of each crevice a bit. Pop in the freezer for a few minutes to allow it to harden.
  • While the mold is in the freezer, make the filling. In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients besides the cereal, until smooth. Then mix in the cereal. Taste the mixture. If you want it a little sweeter, you can add an extra tablespoon of sweetener.
  • Once the chocolate layer has hardened in the molds, remove it from the freezer. Add some of the filling to each one.
  • Next, use the remaining chocolate to pour over top of each egg, spreading it out to cover the filling. Place the mold back in the freezer for an hour or so until completely firm (You want to give it time so the filling firms up as well). Then remove the eggs from the mold and place them in an air-tight container.
  • Store in the freezer!
