1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (or extract of choice)
Natural food coloring
4 ounces sugar-free dark chocolate, chopped (Hershey’s makes Miniatures that work great!)
3/4 ounce cocoa butter OR 1 1/2 Tablespoon coconut oil (solid at room temperature)
Beat butter and cream cheese until smooth.
Add sweetener and beat until well combined. The mixture will be very thick.
Add the cream and beat until smooth.
Add extract of choice and a little food coloring, if desired.
Refrigerate at least 1 hour.
Line a baking sheet with waxed paper and scoop about 2 Tablespoons of the mixture onto the sheet and shape with your hands into an egg shape about 2 inches long. If it’s too sticky, dust with a little Swerve Confectioners. Do all of the mixture like this.
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler with the cocoa butter or coconut oil and dip the eggs one at a time. Lift out and tap gently to remove excess chocolate. Place on waxed paper.
Drizzle with remaining chocolate and let set until firm.
As Spring unfolds, berries of all kinds are coming into season in the U.S. This quick bread is ideal for a weekend brunch. Topped with a little cream cheese and maybe some Swerve Confectioner’s, it’s an absolute delight!
