Peanut Butter Easter Eggs
Total TimePrep: 35 min. + chilling Cook: 5 min.
These eggs are great! I followed the advice of some of the reviews to add less graham crackers and more peanut butter, which I did. I also cut the recipe in half and made the eggs smaller...a personal preference for the two of us. The eggs were delicious and something I'll definitely make again!
I made these for Easter. They turned out tasty. My egg mold only made 12. So I poured the remainder batter into an 8 by 8 pan to make into bars and then pour leftover chocolate over the peanut butter batter. I sprinkled it with chopped up candy coated Cadbury chocolate eggs. Friendly tip( make sure to dip the peanut butter egg fast into the warm chocolate or they melt). I placed mine mold in the freezer.
These were pretty good. The only thing I suggest is to add less graham cracker crumbs. Other than that they were a hit!
I found these easy to shape and form into eggs. I added about 1/4 cup extra peanut butter.
Made these up for Easter treats and found them easy to make apart from dipping them in the chocolate. I found them a little too rich for eating that much at one time. I think I'll make them into balls next time.
I really liked the flavor, but they were hard to make. My peanut butter mixture was way crumbly and made clumps in chocolate. So definitely not as smooth and pretty as picture. I want to try again.
I also omitted the graham crackers - hubby is GF so no wheat. I used crunchy natural peanut butter and more vanilla. Gave as gifts for Easter.
Didn't like the graham crackers but added 1 oz cream cheese - Oh my. Yummy
if YOU ARE NOT INTO EASTER EGGS, TRY BUCKEYES. JUST ROLL YOUR PEANUT BUTTER MIX INTO ONE INCH ROUND BALLS. PUT A TOOTHPICK IN THE TOP. REFRIDGERATE FOR A COUPLE HOURS AND THEN DIP THE BALLS ALMOST ALL THE WAY INTO THE CHOCOLATE MIX. PUT IN PLASTIC CONTAINER, SEAL, AND KEEP IN FRIDGE TILL READY TO SERVE.
These are great. For those who are questioning the graham crackers, the graham crackers help give them the Reese's texture. If there is anything I would do differently next time it would be to add a little more peanut butter. Great recipe though
