Ingredients

  • 1 cup peanut butter smooth
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp water as needed (optional)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil

Instructions

  • Cream the peanut butter and butter together with the vanilla extract.
  • Add powdered sugar and mix on low until combined. Scrape down bowl and mix again.
  • You can drizzle in some water a tablespoon at a time If the mixture is a bit dry. Some peanut butters have a lower moisture content.
  • Pinch off healing tablespoon-sized pieces and roll into balls. About 25g if you're weighing.
  • After rolling the balls flatten a bit in your palms then transfer balls to a baking sheet and shape into eggs.
  • Place in refrigerator to chill until firm, at least 20 minutes.
  • Add chocolate and coconut oil to a medium bowl and melt in the microwave at 50% power in 30 second intervals, stirring in between. Stir to combine and set aside to cool to room temperature.
  • Place a chilled egg on a fork and dip into the chocolate, or spoon it over. Smooth out the chocolate and tap the egg against the bowl to remove excess chocolate then use a knife or offset spatula to remove excess from the bottom.
  • Transfer back to the baking sheet and repeat for the remaining eggs. If you're adding sprinkles then do so before the chocolate sets. You can add more chocolate (or a different chocolate for contrast) to a piping bag, snip the tip off and pipe stripes onto the eggs. Chill to allow the chocolate to firm up and enjoy.

Notes

  • These will keep in the fridge for up to two weeks, just make sure they're covered.
  • So important to scrape that bowl down after adding the powdered sugar. I forgot to once and to top was super firm but the bottom of the bowl was VERY soft.
  • Coconut oil helps thin the chocolate so it's easier to dip things but you can use shortening if that's what you have on hand.
