I made this recipe long before I started blogging and taking pictures of food. If you like peanut butter meltaways, these eggs are SO good! This recipe makes a lot of eggs but it can easily be cut in half.
Peanut Butter Meltaway Eggs
If you like peanut butter and chocolate you will want
to make a bunch of these meltaway eggs. They melt in your
mouth when you bite into them. For another taste treat,
try popping them into the freezer for a few minutes.
1 ½ lbs. white chocolate
2 oz. vegetable oil
1 lb. peanut butter
1 lb milk chocolate candy melts
plastic egg candy mold or
small, clean, plastic Easter eggs
drying rack or tin foil
fork or skewer for dipping eggs
Melt white chocolate in microwave, stopping every 30 seconds to stir. Stir in peanut butter until well mixed. Add oil and stir well for 2-3 minutes.
Pour peanut butter mixture into candy molds or fill each half of the plastic eggs. Set molds in freezer for 10 minutes or until mix is frozen solid.
Melt milk chocolate in the microwave. Using a fork or a skewer, dip the eggs into the chocolate then lay on a drying rack or tin foil to air dry. Sprinkle with candies while chocolate is still wet so that the candies will adhere to the egg.
Serve at room temperature for softer eggs. Can also be served frozen.
Optional: Peanut Butter Meltaway Bon Bons
To serve these delicious treats at times other than Easter, you can easily make them into bon bons.
Once you have mixed the peanut butter, chocolate and oil mixed together from the above recipe, pour the entire mixture into an 8x8 glass dish. Refrigerate until the mixture is solid—could take 2-3 hrs. Use a small ice cream scoop or melon ball scoop to scoop out the peanut butter mixture into ball shapes. Dip balls into melted milk chocolate and allow to dry on a baking rack. Sprinkle with candies if desired.
