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.

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!!!
