White Chocolate Easter Eggs Recipe

From Niceville, Florida, Diane Hixon writes, "My kids loved these homemade candies when they were growing up. The eggs are pretty and taste so sweet!"
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling YIELD:48 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups finely chopped pecans
  • 1 pound white candy coating, melted
  • Gel food coloring, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan, melt butter. Stir in the confectioners' sugar, milk and vanilla until smooth. Stir in pecans. Transfer to a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until easy to handle. Drop by level tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Form into egg shapes. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • 2. Dip eggs into candy coating. Place on waxed paper until set. If a speckled look is desired, dip a small crumpled ball of waxed paper into food coloring. First gently press waxed paper onto a paper plate to remove excess food coloring, then gently press color onto eggs. Repeat if needed. Blot eggs with a paper towel. Yield: about 4 dozen.
