CopyCat See’s Easter Chocolate Butter Egg With Pecans

See’s Candies was one of my favorites growing up! I looked forward to their chocolate Easter eggs every Easter.

I recently wandered into a See’s and asked if they had any vegan options yet…. yeeaaa that was a hard no lol …so I decided I would attempt my own recipe at home!

The recipe I came up with is vegan and taste amazing! My decorating skills could use some work (it was my first time piping roses) I watched a YouTube tutorial while the kiddo was sleeping to learn the basics.

I wish I had more time to perfect my decorating skills but it doesn’t look like I will get the time before Easter. It still taste amazing! 😊
