Easter treats

                    Happy Easter! 

I hope the Easter Bunny found some yummy safe treats to bring your little allergic kiddos!  I decided to make Chocolate SunButter Eggs with my boys today and we had a hard time not eating all the dough before dipping it in the chocolate!

Chocolate SunButter Eggs
4 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups SunButter (or soybutter)
1/4 cup dairy-free margarine, melted
3 Tbsp rice milk (or soy milk)
1 pkg. dairy-free chocolate chips
1 Tbsp shortening

Mix together the powdered sugar, SunButter, and melted margarine.  Add the rice milk and mix until it becomes a workable dough.  Form the dough into egg shapes and place in the freezer for 1 hour.  Place the chocolate chips and shortening in a bowl and microwave until completely melted.  Dip each egg in the melted chocolate and place on waxed paper until set.  I used 2 forks, one to lift the egg out of the chocolate and the other to help slide the egg onto the waxed paper.   If you want to decorate the eggs, quickly add sprinkles before the chocolate sets.  Place the eggs back in the fridge until completely set.  Enjoy!!
