Peanut Butter Chocolate Easter Egg Recipes

6th Apr, 2020
Create deliciously filled chocolate eggs using a few ingredients! With raspberry, peanut butter, or caramel in the center. YUM!

INGREDIENTS

  • 3/4 c. peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 c. sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 T. milk
  • 1 1/2 c. melting chocolate

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Mix all ingredients together (except for chocolate) using an electric mixer until it forms a soft dough.
  2. Roll your filling into small balls.
  3. Coat fingers with cornstarch if necessary, to keep from being sticky. Press into egg mould and freeze for 10 minutes. Note: You can also form them into egg shapes without the mould and place on a baking sheet to freeze.
  4. Once fillings have been chilled, remove from mould by tapping against a hard surface. Place eggs on a baking sheet and keep in refrigerator until ready to dip.
  5. Melt chocolate in the microwave at 30-second intervals (stirring after
    each interval) until smooth. This will take about a minute. DO NOT overheat or chocolate will not be usable.
  6. Dip in chocolate, tapping fork against the side of the bowl to allow excess to drip off. Set on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Add sprinkles immediately before chocolate hardens. Dip a few eggs at a time in chocolate (keeping the rest in the refrigerator to prevent them from softening).
