Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter (“Reese’s”) Easter Eggs
Happy Easter Everyone! I wanted to post this earlier, but with finals and such fast approaching, I haven’t had a spare moment until now.
I love peanut butter and chocolate. I used to love Reese’s before I changed my diet. Now, they don’t really even taste good to me. (And since they’re not good for me, I’m glad!) Probably my favorite Easter candy growing up was “Reese’s Eggs”. I decided to try and make my own this year.
I made these chocolate peanut butter Easter Eggs based of my homemade “Reese’s” cups but with a few changes.
Treat your family or yourself with these instead of Reese’s. They are much, much better for you and actually taste better too! Include them in your last minute Easter baskets too!
Homemade “Reese’s Eggs”
- 1 c. creamy peanut butter (natural)/ or other nut butter or sunbutter
- 2 T. honey
- 1 t. vanilla
- 1/4 c. c. melted butter (or earth balance, or coconut oil )
- 4 T. cocoa powder
Mix melted butter or oil with peanut butter, honey, and vanilla. Stir in cocoa powder. Spoon onto parchment/wax paper and place in the fridge/freeze until set. Serve.
(Keep them in the fridge/freezer) until ready to serve if made with butter especially!
