Ingredients
  • CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DOUGH FILLING:
  • ½ cup dairy-free butter, room temperature, like Earth Balance
  • ¼ cup dairy-free, soy-free shortening, like Spectrum
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 and ⅓ cups gluten-free flour
  • ¼-1/3 cup allergy-friendly chocolate chips
  • CHOCOLATE COATING:
  • 1 cup allergy-friendly chocolate chips, like Enjoy Life
  • 1 Tablespoon soy-free, dairy-free shortening
Instructions
  1. In a stand mixer, mix together the dairy-free butter and shortening. (You want both of them room temp, but not melted). Then, add the sugars and cream. Afterwards add the salt and vanilla. Finally, add the gluten-free flour and blend until incorporated.
  2. The dough will be a lot like playdoh. Put it on some wax paper and roll it out, like you would with sugar cookies. Flour a rolling pin, and flatten it to your desired thickness. Using a cookie cutter, or eye balling it, shape the dough into eggs.
  3. Once all of the dough is shaped, place them in the freezer until they are frozen--about an hour or so.
  4. Once they are frozen, in a small bowl, put the allergy-friendly chocolate and shortening in the microwave. Microwave it on medium heat for 20 seconds at a time, and stir after each time until your chocolate is completely melted.
  5. Dip the frozen eggs into the chocolate and place on wax paper until they have hardened. If desired, drizzle with chocolate on top for patterns, or use sprinkles to make them more fancy.
  6. Keep chilled until you eat, so the chocolate does not melt.
