Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs

Easter is just around the corner.  These Peanut Butter Eggs will be a great addition to your Easter Basket.  You can wrap them in candy bags found in the candy making section at your local grocery store and tie with pastel ribbon.  These tasty treats can also be made in different shapes for different holidays.  Enjoy!!

PEANUT BUTTER EGGS

INGREDIENTS

4 cups powdered sugar

1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter

1/4 cup butter melted

3 tablespoons milk

12 ounce package milk chocolate chips

1 tablespoon Shortening

Sprinkles, optional

DIRECTIONS

Mix powdered sugar, peanut butter and butter, mix well

Add milk and mix to incorporate

Form dough in egg shape, (or balls or any other shape you can think of that would work.)

Place in fridge or freezer to set up, (about 15 minutes worked well for me)

In a microwave safe bowl add chocolate chips and shortening, microwave 30 seconds mix, repeat until the chocolate is melted, do not melt to long or you will ruin the chocolate.

Dip egg (or whatever shape you chose) in the melted chocolate and place on waxed paper until hardened. (If using sprinkles, place on eggs before they harden so the sprinkles stick)
