Best Peanut Butter Eggs Recipe

Copycat peanut butter eggs taste better than store-bought Reese's!  

INGREDIENTS

3 cups powdered sugar 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter 1/4 cup butter melted 3 cups chocolate chips semi sweet, milk chocolate or white chocolate 1 tablespoon shortening cooking spray

INSTRUCTIONS

STEP-1

Combine powdered sugar, peanut butter, butter, and 2 tablespoons water in a mixing bowl.   

STEP-2

Low-speed beating creates dough. If dough is too crumbly, add 1 teaspoon of water at a time until desired consistency is obtained. Line an 8" or 9" square pan with foil. Cover foil with cooking spray.  

STEP-3

Chill the pan for 30 minutes after pressing the peanut butter mixture evenly.  

STEP-4

Use the foil edges to lift the peanut butter mixture from the pan and cut out egg shapes with a cookie cutter.  

STEP-5

Freeze eggs for 30 minutes on a parchment-lined sheet pan. Put chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt chocolate in 30-second intervals in microwave. Stir smooth.  

STEP-6

Remove frozen eggs and dip in chocolate. Tap the bowl to remove excess chocolate. Return the dipped eggs to the parchment. Repeat to coat all eggs. Use a small spoon or piping bag to drizzle remaining chocolate over eggs.  

STEP-7

Serve chocolate when it firms up. Eggs can last 5 days in an airtight container.
