Peanut Butter Eggs
Skip the store-bought candy and make homemade Peanut Butter Eggs this year for Easter! A super easy recipe that you can make with your kids.
- 1 cup natural chunky peanut butter
- 1/4 cup butter melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 4 oz. semi sweet chocolate melted
- sprinkles for garnish
In a large bowl, melt peanut butter and butter together for 1 minute. Stir to incorporate together. Stir in vanilla and powdered sugar. The mixture will seem dry but should hold together when you form it into shapes. Using a 3-tablespoon cookie scoop, measure out 10 even mounds. Form each mound into an egg shape. Refrigerate 10 minutes.
While peanut butter eggs are chilling, melt chocolate in a microwave on low heat, stirring every 30 seconds or so.
Dip each egg into chocolate to cover completely. Remove the egg with a fork, and tap along the edge of the bowl allowing excess chocolate to drip back into the bowl through the prongs.
Place onto a silicone baking mat or parchment paper and sprinkle with any desired toppings. Repeat until all eggs are covered in chocolate. Refrigerate 5 minutes until chocolate has hardened. Wrap up to give away as gifts or serve.
