I don't know about y'all, but Easter just isn't Easter without the Peanut Butter Easter Eggs. If you need to know one thing about me, you should know that I am easily bribed with peanut butter cups .... peanut butter eggs ... peanut butter hearts ... peanut butter pumpkins ... peanut butter trees and Mexican food. Seriously, throw some tamales out or peanut butter cups and I salivate like Pavlov's dogs! Sorry for the visual. ;)

That goes without saying, my favorite Easter candy is the peanut butter eggs. I would be happy with a basket full of them! I also love recreating that candy at home - ya know, for those times when it's not Easter?!

My kiddos love to help make these Peanut Butter Easter Eggs too. I'm not sure if they like eating them or making them more?! Maybe both?!

I use a cheap dollar store egg tray for my mold - but if you don't have one, you can easily shape them with your hands. Your helpers won't mind the mess! :)

Peanut Butter Easter Eggs
Printable recipe
Yield: about 36 small eggs

1½-2 cups powdered sugar
½ cup creamy peanut butter
2 tbsp. butter, softened
Up to 2 tsp. milk, if needed
White and/or Chocolate CandiQuick
Sprinkles, if desired

In a mixing bowl, combine the powdered sugar (starting with the lesser amount), peanut butter and butter until well combined. Only add additional powdered sugar or milk if needed, to get the desired texture and consistency. Shape desired amount (depending on how large you would like the eggs) of the peanut butter mixture into an egg shape and place on a lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining peanut butter mixture. Freeze eggs for about an hour.

Melt CandiQuick according to package directions. Dip each egg into the CadiQuick with a fork. Allow excess coating to drip off. Place the eggs back onto the lined baking sheet to set. Once the coating has set, decorate with additional CandiQuick drizzles and sprinkles, if desired. Allow coating to set before serving!


***Use this set of instructions if you have an egg mold***
Melt the CandiQuick according to package directions. Paint the inside of an egg mold with chocolate. Refrigerate 10-15 minutes or until the chocolate is set. Repaint the inside of the egg mold again, if needed allowing the chocolate to set in the refrigerator. Spoon some of the peanut butter mixture into each mold cavity, ensuring it fits completely within and is below the top of the mold, leaving enough room for the chocolate to cover the top. Remelt CandiQuick if necessary. Spoon additional chocolate over the top, leveling it with the top of the mold. Repeat with remaining cavities. Refrigerate until the chocolate is set. Remove eggs from the mold, decorate with additional CandiQuick drizzles and sprinkles if desired. Allow coating to set before serving!

  2. Oh Lordy, I love peanut butter eggs. One of my former student's mom makes them every year and delivers them to my classroom. I hide them from my family :) haha, they're that good. I guess I need to make some of my own.
