Cherry Cream Easter Egg

Note: Here is another type of cream Easter egg. It is a cherry version. Easy to make... yummy to eat!

Cherry Cream Easter Egg

1/2 cup milk
1/2 stick butter or margarine
2 pkg. (3 oz. each) vanilla pudding and (not instant)
1 (9 oz.) jar maraschino cherries
1 cup pecans or walnuts, finely chopped
1 to 2 lb. confectioners' sugar
1 lb. chocolate, melted


Cut cherries in half; drain well on paper towels. Cook milk, butter and pudding in a medium saucepan on low heat until well blended and thick. Remove from stove and add cherries, nuts and enough sugar to make a thick consistency. Form the mixture into 8 to 10 egg shapes with hands coated in butter.

Place on wax paper covered cookie sheet. Chill several hours until firm. Melt chocolate being careful not to scorch it. Frost egg with melted chocolate.

My blood sugar levels just went up reading this. LOL. Just the kind of stuff I love to eat. I wonder how hard it would be to make a 1/4 of the recipe......
