Ingredients

  • 3 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1/8 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 5 cups powdered sugar
  • 20 oz. chocolate chips, semi-sweet

Instructions

  1. Cream peanut butter and brown sugar.

  2. Stir in melted butter.

  3. Mix in powdered sugar.

  4. Line a 9 x 13 baking pan with wax paper or parchment paper and press peanut butter mixture into the pan until even and flat. Place in the freezer for 1-2 hours.

  5. Remove pan from freezer and lift the peanut butter mixture out of the pan.

  6. Use a small egg-shaped cookie cutter to cut out peanut butter egg shapes. Make the cuts as close together as possible. Re-shape remaining peanut butter filling and cut out additional peanut butter eggs.

  7. Place peanut butter eggs shapes in freezer to harden for another 1-2 hours.

  8. Melt chocolate chips in microwave in a glass bowl by melting for 1 minute, stirring, and then heating in 30 second increments and stirring in between each 30 seconds until the chocolate is melted and smooth.

  9. Dip each peanut butter egg into the chocolate with a fork, tapping excess chocolate off of the egg on the side of the bowl.

  10. Let chocolate harden on the eggs in refrigerator and then layer in a container to store.
