Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

Peanut Butter Easter Eggs


1/2 cup butter, softened

2-1/3 cups confectioners' sugar

1 cup graham cracker crumbs

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1-1/2 cups dark chocolate chips

2 tablespoons shortening

Pastel sprinkles


In a large bowl, cream butter; gradually add the confectioners' sugar, cracker crumbs, peanut butter and vanilla. Shape into 16 eggs; place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm.

In a microwave, melt chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip eggs in chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Decorate with sprinkles; return eggs to waxed paper. Chill until set. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Yield: 16 eggs.

These are great Easter Ideas from Family Fun Magazine, Food Network, and Taste of Home.
