Reviews for Peanut Butter and Marshmallow Chocolate Eggs
"I found this recipe a couple of years ago on Taste of Home. I make them every easter. My son wants me to make them year round. My family and I love them! Thanks for sharing."
"Don't eat too many! These are super rich. Instead of chocolate baking pieces, I used 1 1/2 cups of milk chocolate chips. They turned out just fine."
"This is a great recipe and a lot of fun for kids too!"
"We loved these. They were easy to make and delicious. I made them with my young grandchildren."
"Made them for Easter, they were awesome. Only complaint is I wish there was a better explanation on how to dip eggs without making total mess and wasting a ton of chocolate. Mine were not pretty, but boy were they yummy!!!"
"My family loved these. I also used this recipe to fill my Easter egg moulds"
