They are also my kiddos favorite. Peanut Butter and Chocolate oh my my my! Easter would not be Easter without Reese’s East eggs.
Homemade Reese’s Eggs
Last week I purchased a few Reese’s eggs while checking out at the grocery. It was honestly a battle in the house as EVERYONE wanted more. I decide it was time to have our own homemade Reese’s eggs. So, I hopped in the kitchen and this creation was perfect! The texture and flavors were spot on. With just a few ingredients and a bit of time (and messy hand, ha ha) we can have unlimited Reese’s Peanut butter Eggs at home. You can use any Peanut butter with this recipe. I used Reese’s so I could convince the kiddos that they were made with Reese’s PB , ha ha! I found it at Remke.
1 cup Peanut Butter
1/4 cup Butter
1 tsp Vanilla
1 1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
8 oz Dark Cocoa Melting Chips
Melt peanut butter and butter for 1 minute in microwave.
Stir until blended.
Add vanilla and powdered sugar and mix well.
Divide mixture into 10 portions and shape into a egg shape.
Place on parchment paper lined sheet and place in freezer for 15 minutes.
Melt chocolate in microwave by heating for 30 seconds then stirring and repeating process until it is melted and smooth.
Using a fork, dip egg into chocolate and flip to cover completely. Lift with fork and gently tap on edge of the bowl allowing excess chocolate to drip off.
Place back on parchment paper.
Refrigerate 10 minutes until chocolate has set.
I am so excited for Easter this year. I know spring weather is almost here and all the spring colors are arriving in the stores. Many of the stores are putting out all of the Easter items. This year I plan to make up quite a few of these Homemade Peanut Butter Eggs and other candy and chocolates to make special Easter Baskets. I figure I can make up some yummy treats and wrap them in treat bags with pretty ribbons.
Stay tuned for many GREAT Easter treats and DIY. I have so many planned and I am eager to share them all with you. Do you have a favorite Easter candy? I would love to hear about yours!
