Quite frankly, there are simply not enough holidays for celebrating and appreciating the beauty of chocolate. We can only think of four, which is a disgrace. Now you can celebrate all year round with our popular caramel lava egg. These are a hot commodity among healthified chocoholics, and sell out within hours of their Easter release. They even spearheaded the beginning of our favourite new holiday, Faux Easter – like Christmas in July, just with way more chocolate!


Quantity Ingredient
11 medjool dates, pitted
85ml filtered water
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons coconut sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons coconut butter
1 tablespoon tahini
2 pinches himalayan pink salt
2-3 x 45g bars of pana chocolate raw cacao


Quantity Ingredient
high-speed blender
fine sieve
7 cm chocolate egg moulds


  1. Line the chocolate egg moulds.
  2. To create a date paste, blend the medjool dates, filtered water and 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice in a high-speed blender until smooth. Pass through a fine sieve, if desired. Set aside.
  3. Combine the coconut sugar and the remaining ½ tablespoon of lemon juice in a bowl. Mix until the sugar dissolves.
  4. Fold together the coconut butter, tahini, salt and 80 g of the date paste.
  5. Transfer the mixture into a piping bag and pipe into each lined chocolate mould.
  6. Close the moulds with chocolate and set in the fridge for 2 hours. Once set, knock the chocolates out of the moulds.


  • You could also make approximately 28 small individual chocolates with the caramel filling - follow the instructions on making individual chocolates in the Techniques section.

    The date paste recipe will make more than is required for your caramel lava eggs. The excess can be used as a sweetener in raw cakes, smoothies or nut milk, or you can spread it on toast or banana bread.
