Did everything right for a delicious result except didn't let chocolate dry on wax paper. Kept it on cookie rack and placed in refrigerator; consequently, they stuck! But overall very, very good. Will make again!
My Grandmother gave me peanut butter eggs every Easter when I was growing up. I have been searching for a recipe so I can make them for my kids and carry on the tradition. To make it extra special, I looked online and found a company, Box and Wrap that has the cutest Easter candy boxes and candy bags. I chose the bunny shaped candy box.
These are really good, but not exactly the ones my grandmother made that I was hoping to duplicate.
So EASY to make! I may add more pb for a stronger taste tho.
easy to make and delicious. they were a hit :)
