Easter is coming soon; these delicious eggs are a fantastic, easy treat that can be made inexpensively and are great fun for children. Made in two phases, short attention-spans may have a break between mixing and forming the eggs, and dipping them into white or dark chocolate. Involve the family and have some fun!
1/2 lb Confectioners Sugar
1.5 C Creamy Peanut Butter
1/4 C Melted Butter
2 T milk – if needed
8oz Chocolate or Vanilla Bark
Pastel “sprinkles,” (optional)
In a mixing bowl, thoroughly mix together confectioners sugar, peanut butter and butter. Mixture should be dense, somewhat firm, but pliable. Add milk if necessary. Once blended, form into eggs – may be any size desired. Once eggs are formed, place in freezer for an hour – longer will not hurt them.
In a microwave safe bowl, place 8 oz of either chocolate or vanilla bark. Melt on medium power 1.5 minutes, stir and return to microwave if necessary.
Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Using a fork, dip each egg into melted bark and place on wax paper. Garnish with pastel sprinkles, if desired, before bark sets. Recipe may be doubled.
