Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Eggs

I am getting so excited for Easter when my kids and I will whip up some Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Eggs. They’re almost as good as a Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg (nothing can beat the real thing after all) but infinitely so much fun when you get the kids involved. And you won’t believe how incredibly easy it is to make… What are you waiting for? Hop to it!

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Eggs
Makes 20-25 eggs

2 ½ ups creamy peanut butter
1 ½ cups powdered sugar
Wilton Candy Melts in yellow, pink, green and white
Non-parils for sprinkling on top

Place peanut butter and sugar into a large bowl, mix until combined. Dough will be pretty firm. With a cookie scoop or spoon, scoop 3-4 tablespoons of dough into your hands and shape into eggs. Freeze for 30 minutes to an hour until hardened. Start with one color of candy melts at a time. Coat 4-5 peanut butter eggs with chocolate and place onto parchment or wax paper.

Sprinkle with non-parils quickly as chocolate hardens fast. It’s important to work in batches so your chocolate doesn’t harden on you. Continue coating all of your eggs until they’ve all been coated and sprinkled. Let chocolate harden and serve. Enjoy room temperature or chilled.
