My Grandmother has made these as long as I can remember. Was given the recipe when I got married. They are very good.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Bring sugar, water, and Karo syrup to a boil.
  2. While that is heating, beat egg white until it is stiff and peaks.
  3. Once syrup reaches a rolling boil, remove one cup and continue boiling the remaining syrup to 'Hard Crack' stage.
  4. Beat the one cup into egg white slowly and steadily until it thickens.
  5. Add Peanut Butter, mix thoroughly.
  6. Once the remaining syrup reaches 'Hard Crack', remove from heat and beat slowly and steadily into the eggwhite/syrup/peanut butter mixture.
  7. Cool until it is easily handled.
  8. Form into the shape of an egg (kneading is necessary as it will get a crumbly texture as it cools). knead it until it is smooth and form in the shape of an egg.
  9. Once cooled completely, cover with melted chocolate. Can be decorated with icing if desired.
  10. Makes about 15 palm sized eggs. Great gifts for Teachers, bus drivers, co-workers, etc --.
