Servings 18 eggs


Peanut Butter Eggs

  • 1 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 6 tablespoons Butter Room Temperature
  • 2 1/2 cups Confectioners’ Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract Pure

Chocolate Coating

  • 12 ounces 3 4-ounce Semisweet Chocolate Coarsely Chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Vegetable Oil


Peanut Butter Eggs

  • Using a handheld or stand mixer, beat confectioners sugar, peanut butter, butter, and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl until well blended. The texture may be a little soft and crumbly.
  • Measure 1.5 tablespoons of the peanut butter mixture and roll it into a ball. Flatten the ball between your palms and use your fingers to narrow one end into an egg shape. Eggs should be roughly ¾ inch thick. Place eggs onto a wax paper-lined plate and freeze until firm, about 1 hour, up until one day.
  • When the eggs are ready, combine the chocolate and shortening in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Melt over medium heat, stirring frequently until smooth, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching, until chocolate is melted, about 5 minutes. Allow warm chocolate to sit for 6-8 minutes and cool slightly before dipping.
  • (You can also use a microwave. Combine chocolate and oil into a liquid measuring cup and melt in 20-second increments, stirring afterward until smooth.)

Chocolate Coating

  • Carefully stick a long-tined fork in the top of an egg; gently dip it in melted chocolate until covered, then return it to the waxed paper. Repeat to dip the remaining eggs. Decorate as desired.
  • Refrigerate chocolate-coated candies for 30 minutes until chocolate has completely set before serving.
  • Layer between sheets of parchment and wax paper in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
