I have three ideas for you if you want to make your own peanut butter Easter Eggs. This way you control the ingredients and you have the fun of making these alone or with any available kids.
The first is to use the recipe for Buckeyes, but dip them completely: http://www.nanaclareskitchen.com/2011/12/23/buckeyes/
And you can use dark chocolate! It’s so hard to find Easter Eggs in dark chocolate. Except the coconut, which I love, but that will wait for another day, another post.
Awhile back I tried out two varieties and posted that as Dueling Peanut Butter Balls. Both can be dipped in chocolate – or coconut or crushed nuts or butter brickle pieces. YUM!
Both are listed here: http://www.nanaclareskitchen.com/2011/12/05/dueling-peanut-butter-balls
The peanut butter/pretzel variety is very easy, and has more texture, if you like the crunch.
Or you can dip the old fashioned peanut butter balls that are made without sugar! The honey in these makes them so moist.
Before you can run to the store, rifle through all the bags and bags of candy, stand in line to check out, and drive home you can whip these up in minutes. And I’ll bet yours will be a lot prettier. Happy Easter everyone.
