Lucy’s Peanut Butter Candy Eggs

Dish Description
My daughter and I make these together all the time. We LOVE them so much!
  • 1 cup peanut butter creamy
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 12 – 16 ounces milk chocolate chips

  • Line an 8 X 8 inch dish with Parchment paper letting the paper hang over the sides of the dish so you can easily lift out later.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the peanut butter, melted butter, brown sugar, and pinch of salt, until well combined.
  • Add the powdered sugar a little at a time, mixing well between additions.
  • Press the peanut butter mixture into the Parchment lined dish and smooth evenly with the back of a spoon.
  • Freeze until it’s firm enough to cut. Then, using an egg-shaped cookie cutter, cut out the peanut butter eggs and place them on the parchment-lined cookie sheet. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for about an hour.
  • Melt the chocolate in the microwave.  When the chocolate is melted, dip the eggs into the chocolate on both sides using a large spoon to gently hold the egg.
  • Lay the eggs on a lined cookie sheet and drizzle a little more chocolate from the end of the spoon, making a pretty design on the top of the eggs.
  • Place the eggs in the refrigerator until the chocolate is set, about an hour to 2 hours.
