Chocolate Peanut Butter Egg 2

 

I just love Easter Eggs as they make great gifts for the entire family and the best part is that they are handmade from the heart! This recipe is super easy to create with the kids, so you better wrap them fast or they won’t last for long!

Ingredients

1 cup peanut butter

1⁄4 cup butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1⁄2 cup powdered sugar

10 oz. dark cocoa melting chips

Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs1 (Small)

Directions

1. Melt peanut butter and butter for 1 minute in microwave. Stir until blended.

2. Add vanilla and powdered sugar, mix well.

3. Divide mixture into 10 portions and form each into an egg shape. Place eggs on a parchment lined baking sheet and place in freezer for 15 minutes.

4. Melt chocolate in microwave by heating for 30 seconds. Stir and repeat the process until chocolate is melted and smooth.

5. Using a fork, dip peanut butter eggs into chocolate and flip to cover completely. Lift with fork and gently tap on edge of the bowl – allowing excess chocolate to drip off.

    Does it matter whether you use regular or unsweetened/natural peanut butter?

    Where do you find the dark cocoa melting chips? Do they have a cacao %? My daughter’s diabetic and the dark chocolate has fewer carbs. Want to make some Easter chocolates for her. Thanks!

    • Lyne Proulx says:

      You can find them at most grocery stores. I don’t think I got them in the organic isle of the supermarkets or at heath food stores. If you can’t find them, you can use a dark cocoa chocolate bar and melt it. Thanks for commenting.
