      Wonderful! I rolled the eggs into slightly smaller pieces so needed more chocolate for dipping. Used natural peanut butter and a touch of olive oil instead of shortening. A friend gave me this olive oil tip years ago when melting chocolate for dipped strawberries. You can't taste the olive oil but it gives the finished product a nice glossy finish. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for PAC Spring 2009.

      These are the most decadent peanut butter eggs. They are delicious, velvety smooth and so addictive. The chocolate gets a little awkward thick towards the end and doesn't make such pretty eggs, but they're still good. Mailed them to daughter, they melted a little. She chilled them and they were fine and still very good.
