I am so excited for Easter and the start of Spring. This is easily my favorite time of the year! A recent trip to Target inspired this recipe. I have a hard time saying “no” when I see a really cute serving dish, especially when I can justify it by saying that I will use it for this website. I came across the ceramic egg carton / pastel cracked eggs and snatched them up knowing that I would find a way to use them and when I glanced through the pantry to see the ingredients I had on hand this recipe quickly came together.
INGREDIENTS – Makes 10-12 “eggs”1 cup vegan marshmallows 1/2 cup light brown rice syrup 1/4 cup coconut butter 1/3 cup crushed freeze-dried berries (about ½ cup prior to crushing) 1 ½ cups crisp brown rice cereal
Melt the vegan marshmallows, brown rice syrup, and coconut butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat while stirring constantly. While the mixture is melting, crush the freeze dried berries (they should be small, finely chopped pieces). Once the mixture has melted completely add the crushed freeze dried berries and mix well. Remove from heat.
Add the brown rice cereal and mix making sure the mallow mixture completely coats each piece of cereal.
Allow the cereal / mallow mixture to cool slightly and form into egg shapes. If the mixture is sticking to your hands, coat your hands LIGHTLY with coconut oil.

So, so cute. I love the idea of reinventing Easter customs that are viable for non-egg eaters/vegans. Hurray for new ideas!
These are so sweet – where can you buy vegan marshmallows from?
Hi Emily! Sweet and Sara makes awesome vegan mallows http://store.sweetandsara.com/
I find that Dandies are the easiest for me to find in stores… my local Mother’s Market and Whole Foods carry them http://www.welovesoy.com/dandies_vegan_marshmallows/
The Dandies ones look amazing, I miss marshmallows so much 🙁
I might think about buying some online or something…
After my heart! Love these <3
