Peanut Butter Eggs

Ingredients

  • As seen on WKTV NEWSChannel 2
  • (White chips or white candy melts may be used in place of chocolate chips, if desired.)
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet or milk chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable shortening
  • Assorted candy sprinkles, melted chocolate (optional)
  • Green Tinted Coconut* (optional)

Instructions

  • Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. In a large bowl, combine confectioners’ sugar, peanut butter, and butter. Using a wooden spoon, stir until well combined. Shape mixture into 18 balls. Place on prepared baking sheet; form into egg shapes. Refrigerate until firm, 30 to 40 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, place chocolate chips and shortening in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Melt in the microwave according to package directions; stir until smooth. With a fork, dip bottoms of eggs into melted chocolate; use a spoon to help cover the tops and sides of eggs. Lift eggs from melted chocolate letting excess chocolate drip off. Place on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with candy sprinkles immediately after dipping, or let stand at room temperature until firm, about 20 minutes, or refrigerate until firm, 5 to 7 minutes, and then drizzle with melted chocolate, if desired. Place tinted coconut on a plate; arrange eggs decoratively in coconut. Makes 1 1/2 dozen peanut butter eggs.
  • *GREEN TINTED COCONUT: In a small bowl combine several drops of green food color with 1 1/ 2 teaspoons water; add to 2 cups coconut. Toss with a fork until evenly tinted.
