Hi there! Happy Monday! I’m a bit behind because life has been absolutely crazy lately. Saturday weekend we drove down to Virginia to visit some friends. It was a really quick trip but so much fun!
I was planning on sharing this recipe on Friday, but here it is being shared today. It’s another slightly less healthy recipe- the kind that I like to share right before the weekend, but oh well!
This is such a simple recipe and so delicious- it’s also perfect for Easter! Reece’s Peanut Butter eggs are an all-time Easter favorite. I think everyone agrees that they taste better than regular peanut butter cups. I also think we can all agree that they’re not the best for you, and they have tons of sugar in them. I have seen quite a few recipes for Healthier Reeces Peanut Butter Eggs- but this is by far the easiest way to make them. You only need five ingredients!
Healthier Reece’s Peanut Butter Eggs
Equal parts natural peanut butter and powdered sugar, depends on how many you want to make!
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
Mix the peanut butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla together in a bowl. Form into egg shapes- roll into a small ball then flatten into an egg shape- you can make large, medium, or mini eggs! Form them on a piece of wax paper and place them in the freezer for about 15 minutes or so.
Next, pour the chocolate chips into a bowl. Melt them in the microwave or a double boiler. Add in the melted coconut oil to make mixing and pouring the chocolate chips a little easier. Pour the chocolate over the peanut butter eggs and place back in the freezer for a few minutes. And that’s it! They’re ready to eat!
I poured some striped eggs and some full chocolate eggs. The easiest way to make them look smooth and completely covered is to place the eggs on a drying rack with the parchment paper underneath and then drizzle the chocolate over top.
These are so quick and easy to make and they’re perfect for an Easter party or get together. I think they taste much better than the original peanut butter eggs, but with much better ingredients and much less sugar!
Have a great start to your week! What’s your favorite Easter candy!?
