Which came first, the pudding or the egg?
Well, of course it's the egg. I used to love getting candy eggs in my Easter basket, although I was once a little freaked out by the Cadbury Creme ones. I thought for sure there was a real yolk inside. Yuck!
But, when I found out the "yolk" was really just more candy (I think it's caramel), they became one of my favorites. They just do a good job of mimicking the real deal, kind of like my raw recipes.
So, now that I don't eat these processed treats, I've made a pudding of sorts to relive the experience. The bowls are lined with leftover chocolate fondue, filled with a vanilla cream made from young thai coconut meat and topped with a raw caramel.
When everyone else is devouring their traditional candies today, I'll be enjoying this fun tribute to one of my childhood faves. Happy Easter!.
