Prep Time: 15-20 minutes
Servings: up to 16.
3 3/4 cups of powdered sugar (confectioners sugar)
1 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 Tablespoon milk
8 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate (8-1 ounce squares)
1 Tablespoon shortening
1. In a large bowl, mix together powdered sugar, peanut butter, butter and milk until blended. Mixture will not be smooth. Shape the mixture using a spoon for a guide into the desired egg shape. This recipe will make anywhere from 2 to 16 eggs. Place eggs in freezer for at least an hour.
2. While the eggs are in the freezer, break the chocolate squares into smaller pieces and place in the top of a double boiler with the shortening. Melt over medium heat, stirring frequently until smooth. Using a fork or your fingers, dip the peanut butter eggs in the chocolate until covered. Place covered eggs on a drying rack or waxed paper until cool. Once cooled, decorate the eggs as you please.
