Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons shortening

Instructions

  • Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper and set aside.
  • Add powdered sugar and peanut butter to a large bowl and using a high-speed mixer, beat together until combined. Add melted butter and beat until smooth.
  • Add milk, vanilla and salt, continue to beat until a soft and smooth dough forms. The dough may be a little crumbly, which is ok.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll dough in a disk about ½ inch thick. Using an egg cookie cutter, measuring cups that resemble an egg or a knife, cut the dough into egg-like shapes. Place on the prepared cookie sheet. Freeze for an hour.
  • Add chocolate chips and shortening to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 30 seconds increments, stirring after each one until fully melted. Careful to not burn it.
  • Using two forks, dip each peanut butter egg into the melted chocolate to coat. Place them onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • Chill for 20 minutes, or until chocolate hardens. Keet in the fridge.
  • Serve and enjoy!
