    I am looking for a tried and true Maple Cream Easter Egg recipe without nuts in it.  The local church used to make easter eggs and no longer do now. Thanks Nancy

    Maple Cream Eggs



    1 cup butter (no substitutes), softened
    3 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
    3 tablespoons maple flavoring
    2 cups chopped walnuts
    2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
    1 cup butterscotch chips



    In a mixing bowl, cream the butter, sugar and maple flavoring until smooth. Stir in walnuts. Shape into “eggs:; place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Freeze until firm.
    In a microwave or heavy saucepan, melt the chips; dip balls and place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate until hardened. Store in the refrigerator

    Hi: Below is my Easter Egg Recipe.   I would just amend it.

    Leave out the yellow food colouring

    Add a Tsp. or 2,  (according to taste)

    But beside that just follow the recipe.

    For your info, parafin is NOT an edible product.

  • Re: Maple Cream Easter Egg Recipe

    Just as a correction and for your information:   while i do not put parafin in anything this is part of the food safety information:

    • Food-grade paraffin wax:
      • Shiny coating used in candy-making; although edible, it is nondigestible, passing right through the body without being broken down
      • Coating for many kinds of hard cheese, like Edam cheese
      • Sealant for jars, cans, and bottles
      • Chewing gum additive

    So, it IS edible,,,just wont digest at all, giving no food value.
