Nutty Chocolate Easter Eggs

These are an extra yummy bliss ball with a chocolate coating and a nut in the middle for extra decadence and crunch. These are a great healthy and delicious Easter egg alternative for any celebration. You can substitute with any nut butter of your choice and coat in cacao nibs and crushed almonds and use a hazelnut in the middle if you wish to try something a little different. I hope you enjoy this homemade nutty chocolate eggs as much as I do!
