For Easter this year, I decided to make some homemade delicious peanut butter eggs.
First use 1/4 c. butter and 1/4 c. brown sugar. I doubled the recipe.
Melt in microwave for 30 seconds or 1 minute.
Once melted, add 3/4 c. of confectioner’s sugar, 1/2 c. peanut butter and 1/2 c. of finely chopped honey roasted peanuts.
Stir and cover with plastic wrap for 1 hour.
After 1 hour, I used two spoons and shaped the dough into eggs.
Chill for another hour.
In a small saucepan, melt 12 oz. of bittersweet chocolate and 2 oz. of butter flavored shortening. Stirring continuously until smooth.
Carefully place the egg in the chocolate and using two forks, cover completely.
Place on a wire rack to set. I think parchment paper would have been better.
I would decorate the eggs but they were so good… they were gone before I had a chance to decorate with colored chocolate or put on a pretty plate.
Try them, they are easy and delicious.
