Chocolate Eggs

Instructions

  • 3/4 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 1-1/2 to 2 cups confectioners' sugar, divided
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons shortening

Directions

In a mixing bowl, cream peanut butter or butter until well mixed. Fold in coconut, nuts and 1 cup sugar; mix well. Sprinkle some of the remaining sugar on a board. Turn peanut butter mixture onto board; knead in enough of the remaining sugar until mixture holds its shape when formed. Shape into small egg-shaped pieces. Cover and chill for 1 hour. In a double boiler over hot water, melt chocolate chips and shortening, stirring until smooth. Dip eggs; place on waxed paper to harden. Chill. Yield: 2 dozen.
