Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

Note: Even adults like to get a little "happy" on Easter morning. Why buy candy when you can make these delicious eggs that are delicious and say, "I love you!"

Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

1/4 lb. butter, softened
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 lb. confectioners' sugar
1-1/2 cups peanut butter
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
12 oz. milk chocolate candy melts, milk chocolate coating chocolate, or milk chocolate chips

Mix the butter and cream cheese together. Add the confectioners' sugar and mix well. Add the peanut butter, vanilla, and salt and mix until well-blended. Place the mixture in the refrigerator to chill for at least one hour. Form the peanut butter mixture into egg shapes, then refrigerate again for at least one hour. Melt the chocolate in a microwave oven or in a double boiler. Using a large toothpick, dip each peanut butter egg in the melted chocolate. Arrange the chocolate coated eggs on a waxed paper lined tray and allow the chocolate to harden. Place each peanut butter egg in a paper candy cup.
