Peanut Butter Eggs

READY IN: 3hrs
Recipe by Marguerite214

This is a recipe I got from my sister a few years back. We always make them around Easter and they are a big hit. Cooking time is freezing/refrigerating time.

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.
