Homemade PB Easter Eggs

Today I came across a great recipe to make at home with your children...Homemade Peanut Butter Eggs! This is a kid-friendly recipe that the whole family will love from start to finish!

Below is the recipe, recently posted on Confessions of a Cookbook Queen's blog. Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • 2 packages (18 sheets) graham crackers, crushed very finely
  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 sticks (12 Tablespoons) butter, softened
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • Chocolate candy melts or almond bark
Directions
In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine graham cracker crumbs, peanut butter, butter and powdered sugar. Mix on medium low until fully combined. You may have to use your hands to make sure it's completely blended.

Shape the mixture into eggs. I rolled it into golf ball sized balls, then formed the egg shape from there. Place on a wax paper lined baking sheet and place in the freezer for one hour.

Once the eggs are frozen firm, melt your chocolate according to package directions. Place the eggs in the chocolate one at a time, and slide a fork under each egg to remove. Place back on wax paper lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with sprinkles and refrigerate eggs until chocolate is set.

This will make about 24 Reese's egg-sized eggs. Be sure to refrigerate.
