These are very simple to make! Once the chocolate is melted your kids can scoop them and decorate themselves :) You can use white chocolate in place of peanut butter chips for those with allergies. You will also need cupcake papers and Cadbury Mini Chocolate (or hershey's) eggs.. There are many ways to make this recipe your own, so have fun!

Ingredients Nutrition
