easter peanut butter covered eggs

i love trying different verations of my favorite treats for easter to see what one i like and i also love eating them as well.


  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Prepare a rimmed baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium sized sauce pan combine peanut butter, butter, dark brown sugar, vanilla, and salt.
  3. Stirring constantly, heat until the mixture has fully melted.
  4. Remove from the heat.
  5. Stir in the powdered sugar 1/4 cup at a time. Make sure the powdered sugar has been fully incorporated before adding another 1/4 cup. Set aside until the mixture has come to room temperature.
  6. Using a large cookie scoop, scoop the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet.
  7. Use your fingers to shape the mixture into an egg shape. (Look at my photos for help)
  8. Freeze the eggs on the baking sheet until hardened, about 15-30 minutes.
  9. Once hard, prepare your chocolate coating.
  10. Microwave the oil and chocolate chips (do this in a measuring cup) in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate has completely melted.
  11. Dunk one egg at a time into the melted chocolate by placing an egg on a fork and lowering it into the chocolate. Use a spoon to spoon chocolate over the top.
  12. Once the egg has been fully covered, gently tap the handle of the fork on the side of your measuring cup to get any excess chocolate off.
  13. Place onto the prepared baking sheet and repeat with remaining eggs.
  14. Freeze until the chocolate has hardened and enjoy!
