DIRECTIONS

  • In a large saucepan, combine brown sugar, corn syrup and crunchy peanut butter.
  • Cook and stir over medium heat until smooth. Remove from heat, stir in the cereals.
  • Drop by a tablespoon onto a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil that has been lightly sprayed with PAM or other non-stick spray. When cool enough to handle, spray your hands with PAM and shape each dropful into egg shape.
  • Refrigerate until firm.
  • Melt the chocolate chips and shortening in the microwave or in a double boiler, whichever you prefer. Stir until smooth and completely melted.
  • Dip eggs in chocolate, turning to coat, and allowing excess to drip off.
  • Place on cookie sheet and decorate with candy sprinkles. Let stand until set.
  • Place in a decorative arrangement onto tinted coconut on a tray.
