Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

Wonderful family recipe that has been handed down for years as a special treat for Easter. Enjoy the mouth watering taste of peanut butter with the scrumptious addition of chocolate for a treat to your palate at Easter.



  • 1/4 lb. butter, softened
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 2 lb. confectioners' sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 12 oz. milk chocolate chips


Mix the butter and cream cheese together. Add the confectioners' sugar and mix well. Add the peanut butter, vanilla, and salt and mix until well-blended. Place the mixture in the refrigerator to chill for at least one hour. Form the peanut butter mixture into egg shapes, then refrigerate again for at least one hour.

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Using a large toothpick, dip each peanut butter egg in the melted chocolate. Arrange the chocolate coated eggs on a waxed paper lined tray and allow the chocolate to harden. Decorate your eggs with a personalized name and some pretty spring flower candies found in your baking department.
