In a bowl, place peanut butter.

Cream the peanut butter and the brown sugar.

Add the vanilla.

 

Stir in the melted butter.

Mix until blended with a hand mixer.

Mix in the powdered sugar.

Mix with a hand mixer until blended on low speed.

The mixture will be thick.

Line a 9×13 baking pan with wax paper or parchment paper and press peanut butter mixture into the pan until even and flat.

Place parchment paper over the mixture and then press down with hands.

Place in the freezer for 1-2 hours.

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

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. Place the peanut butter egg shapes in the freezer to harden for another 1-2 hours.

Melt chocolate chips in the microwave in a glass bowl by melting for 1 minute, stirring, and then heating in 30-second increments and stirring in between every 30 seconds until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Carefully remove the bowl out of the microwave with a towel.

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

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

How to Store Best Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Eggs:

  • Chocolate peanut butter eggs freeze very well for longer storage. Freeze on the wax-lined or parchment-lined cookie sheet, then transfer to an airtight container or freezer bag to maintain flavor. 

Tips for Making The BEST Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs 

  • Try using two forks to dip the peanut butter eggs into the chocolate coating. Hold the eggs between the forks and allow the excess chocolate to drip off before moving the eggs to the parchment paper to set. This makes a smooth coating with less mess.
  • Try using milk chocolate, dark chocolate or vanilla coating to make these eggs. They are all tasty treats. 

 

Can these Best Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Eggs ahead of time?
