Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter (“Reese’s”) Easter Eggs

Apri 1, 2010 002 

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!


Enjoy! 🙂

  1. So glad you shared these on Slightly Indulgent Tuesday over at Amy’s … these look fabulous, Ari! I’ll definitely be making them soon. 🙂


    • Aww thanks Shirley! You’ll have to let me know how they go! -Ari

  2. I saw these on Amy’s site and had to come and check it out for myself! Wow, they look great and I think I will try them. I have a few peanut butter and chocolate lovers in my house! I agree with you too about the original ones not tasting very good anymore. Funny how our tastes change! For the better…

    • Maggie! Thanks for commenting! Let me know how you like them! And yes, I definitely agree…..I love how our tastes change for the better! -Ari

  3. I haven’t had Reese’s Eggs but I love the peanut butter cups! This sounds really decadent and is a must-try. Almost anything with chocolate, I’m all over it. Thanks for sharing!

    • No problem!!! I love peanut butter cups too! You could also try my peanut butter cups here too……:)
