One of my favorite combos is peanut butter and chocolate - I classify these two as “food groups”! You don’t have to restrict yourself to Easter; you can make Reese’s eggs year round. Everyone loves these peanut butter eggs and your kids will go crazy over them. They are so good!
Note:An alternative to this recipe is to substitute the 2 tablespoons of butter for the coating for 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
In a medium-sized bowl combine peanut butter and butter together with a mixer.
Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Shape the eggs by using 1 tablespoon of the peanut butter mixture and hand shape into an egg shape. Place eggs on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper. Refrigerate eggs for about 30 minutes before coating with chocolate.
Melt chocolate in a double boiler, or in a microwave in 30-second increments. Add 2 tablespoons of butter to the chocolate and stir to combine. When the chocolate/butter has fully melted, set aside.
Remove peanut butter eggs from the refrigerator and gently dip each one into the chocolate. Place the dipped eggs onto the waxed paper. Allow the chocolate to set. Once the chocolate has set, the eggs are ready to be enjoyed.
