Rice Bubble Easter Eggs and Other Ideas

Easter is fast approaching (it’s too early this year) and it feels like Easter eggs have been in the shops since Boxing Day.  Easter is hard on the elimination diet and there aren’t a lot of non-chocolate options around.  These cute little rice bubble eggs are super easy to make.  Nestle White Melts aren’t chocolate so they are suitable for the Elimination and  FAILSAFE diets.

Hot Cross Buns are also a problem, but I have some recipes for these, as well as some other buns you might like to make.  These recipes can all be found on my Easter page.

If you are looking for more ideas, including non-food ones check out the Cooking for Oscar and the At the Failsafe Table Easter Pinterest pages.

Low Chemical / FAILSAFE, High Salicylates

Hoppers naturally coloured 100s and 1000s and Sprinkles contain high levels of salicylates.


  1. Add raw cocoa or carob to the butter and marshmallow mixture for chocolate eggs.
  2. Use chocolate or carob buttons/chips instead of the White Melts.
