Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Easter Eggs from www.laurenslatest.com So, Easter is in March this year?! What the what? Who decides when holidays are and more importantly, who do I have to kill to get that job?

Just kidding. I don’t want that job.

But seriously. Anyone know the answer to that question? I’m curious….

So, before I forget to post anything Easter related and then blink and it’s suddenly Christmas, I’m sharing some awfully tasty chocolate and peanut butter treats that take about 30 minutes to make….and you don’t need to turn on the oven :) Super simple peanut butter eggs covered in chocolate and topped with some sprinkles! So fun for kids to make and turn into cute little gifts! I loved these cute eggs and so did my peanut butter and chocolate loving husband!

Here’s how you make these guys: IMG_0081 Start by measuring and melting some peanut butter and butter together in the microwave.

IMG_0085 Things should be pretty liquidy at this point.

IMG_0093 Pour in a little vanilla and powdered sugar

IMG_0095 and stir! Don’t be alarmed if it looks dry because it should hold together.

IMG_0097 Like this!

IMG_0102 Divide into 10 large mounds and form into egg shapes.

IMG_0108 OR…..lumps that look like egg shapes?! SURE. Throw these into the fridge while you melt some chocolate.

IMG_0113 Aaaaand grab some random sprinkles you {finally} found in a box. And for the love of everything good and holy, wipe off the table woman!

IMG_0124 So, now, just dip your eggs into the melted chocolate and top with sprinkles! My fingers were a little too chocolatey to get a camera involved. Pretend there are photos of that here.

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Easter Eggs from www.laurenslatest.com You can let them harden at room temp, or put them back in the fridge to make the process go a little faster. And voila! Just like that, you’ve got some peanut butter Easter eggs :) Yippee!

¬†Easy peasy, right? I thought so. Here’s the printable! Make these with your kids this weekend.

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

A fast no-bake Easter treat!

Yield: 10 large eggs

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 0 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

1 cup all natural chunky peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
4 oz. semi sweet chocolate, melted
sprinkles, for garnish

Directions:

In a large bowl, melt peanut butter and butter together for 1 minute. Stir to incorporate together. Stir in vanilla and powdered sugar. Mixture will seem dry but should hold together when you form it into shapes. Using a 3-tablespoon cookie scoop, measure out 10 even mounds. Form each mound into an egg shape. Refrigerate 10 minutes.

While peanut butter eggs are chilling, melt chocolate in microwave on low heat, stirring every 30 seconds or so.

Dip each egg into chocolate to cover completely. Remove egg with fork, and tap along the edge of the bowl allowing excess chocolate to drip back into the bowl through the prongs. Place onto a silicone baking mat or parchment paper and sprinkle with any desired toppings. Repeat until all eggs are covered in chocolate. Refrigerate 5 minutes until chocolate has hardened. Wrap up to give away as gifts or serve.

    YUM! Looks delicious!

    I googled how to figure out when Easter is held, and oh goodness…it involved math, something about a moon, and a bunch of other information that I didn’t bother with…Easter is on Sunday, and that’s all I can tell you for sure.

    Easter is always on the Sunday after the first full moon after the vernal equinox. So it has a range of about 5 weeks in which it can be. And since the carnival holidays and whitsun are a fixed distance from Easter, those are on different dates every year too. Easter in March isn’t exactly a rare occurrence, but it is especially early this year, I think.

    Easter is the first Sunday after the first full moon following the Spring Equinox (that day when the sun shines directly on equator). It also depends on whether one follows the Julian or the Gregorian calendar.

    Easter is the first Sunday in Spring AFTER there’s been a full moon. March 22 is the earliest it can occur and April 25 is the latest. Next year it is on April 20th.

    I have to make these, but I’m going to make them smaller, as I have several to make them for.

    I made these yesterday and got so caught up in dipping the eggs in the chocolate, that I have several eggs without any decorations…ha ha. Dipping the eggs in the chocolate was the hardest part of this recipe. Thank you Lauren. Great idea.

    It is really complicated like everyone says. The person in charge is the Catholic Church however….. so idk if you would want to kill them.
