Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a large bowl mix the peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and salt with a wooden spoon until well combined. 
  • Then add the sugar and stir it well until it is incorporated with the peanut butter mixture.
  • 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.
