I am picky when it comes to my Peanut butter, I personally like to use Peanut Butter and Co. Peanut butter or Justin’s Peanut Butter. You can use your favorite peanut butter if you want to when making these Chocolate Peanut Butter eggs if you are not up to trying a new peanut butter. The important thing with the peanut butter is that you use smooth peanut butter and not chunky.
When it comes to dipping chocolate, I LOVE a good chocolate! To be honest when you are making chocolate peanut butter eggs, it is a must to use a good chocolate. I am slightly picky on my chocolate because I LOVE Chocolate, so when you are making your Peanut butter eggs you want a good chocolate! My favorite to use is the Ghirardelli dipping chocolate, it is sooo good!
You are going to need to melt chocolate, the best way to do so is with a double boiler. If you have never melted chocolate with a double boiler, check out How to Melt Chocolate in a Double Boiler.
Any brand will do, just make sure that you are using confectioners sugar and not granulated sugar.

- In a large bowl mix the peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and salt with a wooden spoon until well combined.

- Use your hands to roll the peanut butter into egg-like oval shapes that are 1/4 inch thick.
- Chill the peanut butter eggs on a plate in the fridge for about 1 hour.
- Using a double boiler melt the chocolate, if the chocolate is to thick you can add a little bit of shorting to help thin it out.
- Remove the peanut butter eggs from the fridge.
- Using a fork dip each one into the melted chocolate until they are completely coated. Tap the fork on the edge of the bowl to remove the extra chocolate.
- Place them on a cooling rack to cool and harden before eating.
