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.
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.

Peanut Butter Easter Eggs
In a mixing bowl, combine confectioners' sugar, peanut butter, butter and milk (if needed for moisture) until blended. Shape mixture into two 1/2 pound eggs or make a bunch of smaller eggs. Freeze eggs for 1 hour.
While the eggs are freezing, cut semi-sweet chocolate into small pieces and place in top of double boiler with shortening. Melt over medium heat, stirring frequently until smooth. Stick a long-tined fork in top of each peanut butter egg, dip it in melted chocolate to cover then drain on waxed paper. When the eggs are cooled and set, decorate the eggs to suit your fancy.
