Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

I know it’s not just my children who love Easter. Like Halloween in the autumn, it’s the one holiday they are guaranteed to get a ton of candy to chow down on. Perhaps their very favorite of the mix is those Peanut Butter Easter Eggs that so many companies sell these days. But did you know that you can make your own really easily? This recipe is great for those who want to dip their toes into candy making, as it is really simple to make and so difficult to get wrong! The greatest part is that even if you do manage to mess it up, you’ll still be left with something delicious!

Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 C creamy peanut butter
2 C powdered sugar
2 TBSP butter
2 package melting chocolate OR 1 C chocolate chips
pastel candy melts
sprinkles

Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

To begin, combine your peanut butter, powdered sugar and butter in a bowl with an electric mixer until well blended.

Next, lay out a sheet of parchment paper and spray it with nonstick cooking spray. Using a large spoon, grab 2-3 tablespoons of peanut butter mixture, roll into balls and then shape into eggs. Lay them on your parchment paper.

Freeze your peanut butter eggs for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Just before removing them from the freezer, melt your chocolate.

Take your eggs from the freezer and dip them into your chocolate, one by one. Return to the parchment paper and allow them to harden.

Once they are fully set, melt your pastel candies and scoop the mixture into a plastic baggie. Snip the corner and drizzle the mixture over your eggs, topping with sprinkles.

Decorating these things is totally a matter of preference. While I love the vibrant look of the drizzle method, you can choose to simply use sprinkles by themselves or leave them plain, as many brands do.

Wrap each one in colored cellophane or package them in treat bags to give as gifts. They make a perfect Easter treat!

FOR THOSE HAVING TROUBLE "SHAPING" THESE INTO EGG SHAPES, SIMPLY USE THE PLASTIC FILLABLE EASTER EGGS. OPEN THEM UP, PRESS MIX DOWN INSIDE, PLACE THEM ON A COOKIE SHEET IN THE FREEZER FOR A FEW MINUTES. TURN THEM OVER, TAP ON THE COOKIE SHEET, AND THEY FALL RIGHT OUT BEAUTIFULLY SHAPED LIKE HALF AN EGG...!!!!
