If you have been following Fork & Beans for a while, you will note my love for holidays and foods that are shaped in celebration for it. Shoot, I have a section in my Recipes that is labeled “Holidays“ so it’s needless to say that I love getting creative with my food when there is a holiday approaching. Aside from Halloween (you should know that I am obsessed with Halloween!) Easter is my second favorite holiday to make food for. Why? I have no clue but I am assuming it has something to do with creating desserts that look like eggs maybe? I just plain ol’ love me an egg-shaped dessert.
When I feverishly created my Vegan White Chocolate Mousse recipe, I knew immediately how I was going to use it. In fact, I created it *just* for these Vegan Cadbury Egg Bowls. I’m not even exaggerating when I say how excited I was to assemble them. Every phase to making these made me giggle like a little school girl…
How to create the Edible Non-Dairy Chocolate Bowls:
Melt your chocolate (if you need tips of chocolate-making, this post is just for you) in a heat-safe bowl.
Lightly blow up a balloon and tie it to secure. I prefer cleaning and drying off the balloon at this point (no need for the taste of latex). Also, think about the radius of your blown-up balloon–you will be filling the bowl with 1/3 c. mousse so you don’t want it too big (I just blew in one small breath of air). OR use water balloons–they will be a good size once filled with air.
Gently dip the balloon into the bowl of melted chocolate, ensuring that the sides are coated as well.
Place on a wax paper-lined baking sheet and freeze for 20 minutes. Make sure that the chocolate is fully set otherwise when you pop the balloon the bowl will cave in.
Once the chocolate has set, pop each balloon and carefully remove it from what is now the edible bowl. If you are having difficulties removing the balloon, just be patient and gentle with it, moving it back and forth until completely removed.
Place back into the freezer until you are ready to serve.
Prepare your vegan white chocolate mousse and have the canned apricot or peach ready (I used a 1 1/2″ round cutter for the perfect size for the yolk) so you can immediately fill the edible chocolate bowls because you are not going to want to wait any longer to eat up these super festive Vegan Cadbury Egg Bowls. Eeeeeeeeee….aster!Print

Wow, that looks really great. And the pictures are also very good. Have to try this one day to see how it tastes like. But I think I already know 🙂
This looks so amazing 🙂 and your blog is full of great recipes. I just bought my self a blander so I can make more vegan meals. Will definitely try some of yours recipes.
You are so welcome, Nika! Have fun going blender-crazy! 🙂
Brilliant!!!!! You are a freakin’ genius – using apricots for the yolks, say whaaaaat!
Katie @ Produce on Parade
You are so talented! This is just fabulous 🙂 I didn’t know there were such a thing as canned apricots! How peculiar! Boy they do look exactly like egg yolks 🙂
I love these! So cute! I never would have thought apricot for the yolk. I was sure you did some kitchen alchemy with potions and powders and such, and the yolk was going to be some encapsulated goo of some sort. I like the apricot idea even better!
Kitchen alchemy! haha. That should have been my blog name 🙂 xo!
My wife is alergic to eggs and I was making fun with her that she can eat that kind of eggs. This looks so delicius and the idea si so innovative!
Thanks for sharing.
Haha. Bostjan, I love how you poke fun at the wifey–I hope she enjoys the heck out of these eggs! xo
Jordan @ The Blonde Vegan
No effing way. This is the cutest & most delicious sounding Easter treat I have ever heard of!
Thank you for the love, Jordan! xo
Never would of guessed that the yolks were apricots, how clever!
I love this Cara and so excited to make these for my kids. Thank you!
Have fun making them with the kiddos, Melissa. Hope you like them!

You are so welcome Emma! xo
I agree that the apricots look amazing! Very creative.
Thank you Mila! 🙂
Veggie V! @ Veggie V's Vegan Adventure

Richa! Such a kind thing to say…thank you! xo
You are seriously the cutest. I would love to play in your kitchen. Your mind is so creative!
Don’t you tease me… Any chance of moving to LA soon?
So cute! You really think outside the box Cara, what a great idea to use apricots, I love this recipe!
Thank you for the super kind words, Vicky! So glad that you like them 😉
These are so adorable. YOU are adorable! Thet should be put up on the Instructables web site for fun food options. Chocolate bowls are so much fun. You should make a couple of double or triple strength ones, fill them with goodies and seal with more chocolate. Your nieces would go bananas. Heck, I’d go bananas. You do know Caitlin and I have wedding anniversaries next week right? Just sayin’ 🙂
Chocolate bowls ARE so much fun! It was my first time doing them and I was so excited that I figured out how to do them but then disappointed when I realized that I wasn’t the first person to think of it. Womp womp. ha! Sending you an anniversary bowl… xo
