Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Eggs
If you need a quick and easy Easter dessert idea, these Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Eggs are perfect for you! They're so cute, tasty and festive for Easter!
- 2 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
- 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- Wilton candy melts in yellow, green, pink & white
- Non-parils for sprinkling on top
Place peanut butter and sugar into a large bowl, mix until combined. I used my hands half way through mixing with a spoon. 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.
Makes 20-25 candies
I only froze mine for 15 minutes and I was able to continue, it's just easier if the dough is hardened.
