The classic candy we all know and love gets a Paleo makeover for a decadent, chocolate-covered treat with a creamy turmeric filling!
Coconut butter is the main ingredient in this recipe that keeps the mixture pliable. This creamy ingredient is great in keto and Paleo desserts to achieve a rich, chewy texture – especially when mixed with almond butter, like in this Cadbury egg recipe.

For the “yolk”, you’ll be using anti-inflammatory turmeric and pepper. Black pepper increases the absorption of turmeric, helping your body get the most out of its antioxidant properties. Don’t worry – the black pepper is hidden in the melted chocolate, so it’s not even recognizable to the eye or palate.
To start, combine the coconut butter, almond butter, and raw honey in a small bowl. Scoop 2 tablespoons of the mixture out into a separate bowl and stir in the turmeric. Place both bowls in the freezer for five minutes to let the mixture set (this makes it easier to roll).
Next, scoop a tablespoon of the larger tan mixture into your hand and roll into a small ball. Gently flatten, then add ½ teaspoon of the turmeric mixture into the center. Wrap the tan mixture around the center and roll into a ball. Add an extra dab of the light mixture to completely cover the turmeric inside. Repeat with the remaining mixture. Work quickly, as the heat from your hands will cause the candy to soften!
Place the rolled eggs on a plate lined with parchment paper, and return to the freezer. While you wait, add dark chocolate chips and coconut oil over a double boiler, then remove from the heat and stir in the black pepper. Spoon the melted chocolate over each egg to completely cover, then return back to the freezer for five minutes to set.
