Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Jane from Ohio

Received this in a flyer through the mail. They said you could decorate them with royal icing or top the eggs with colored sprinkles. They sounded good.

I made these today. Everything went fine until I went to melt the chocolate chips for dipping them. When I added the shortening, the chocolate seized up so I couldn't dip the eggs but had to sort of mold the frosting around the eggs. Then I put the rainbow sprinkles in my left hand and pressed the egg with frosting into the sprinkles. They look AWESOME and really cute but not smooth and shiney like those in the photo. My son is a big peanut butter/chocolate guy so we'll see what he thinks when he tries one. I also used a cookie dough scoop to get all the eggs the same size. Super easy too.
