Salted Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Eggs

Yield 2 dozen

These Homemade Peanut Butter Eggs are sure to be a hit this Easter!!! Made with just a handful of basic ingredients, these salted chocolate covered peanut butter eggs are super easy to whip up! 

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl or the body of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, mix together powdered sugar, peanut butter, vanilla, and softened butter.
  2. Add milk, one tablespoon at a time until it becomes a nice workable dough. It will be a little sticky, but totally scoop-able and easy to work with.
  3. Scoop 2 tablespoon sized rounds onto a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Form each round into egg shapes. I did this by simple squeezing the bottom of one side down and out a little.
  4. Place eggs in freezer to firm up for 1 hour.
  5. When ready to dip in chocolate, place chocolate chips in and coconut oil in a heatproof glass measuring cup. Microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until melted.
  6. Carefully dip each egg in the melted chocolate. I did this by placing each egg of a fork, then quickly dipping it in the chocolate and pulling it pack out, letting the excess chocolate drip back into the bowl.
  7. Once dipped in chocolate, place eggs back on the waxed paper lined baking sheet, sprinkle with salt and sprinkles, and leave to set. About 1 hour. You can speed this up by placing the eggs in the refrigerator.
