Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

peanut butter easter eggs

These Peanut Butter Easter Eggs are easy to make, melt in your mouth and are only 4 ingredients! You can choose to temper the chocolate for dipping or use my chocolate coating recipe below.

Can I freeze the peanut butter eggs?

There’s no need to freeze these bad boys, they have an excellent shelf life at room temperature of several weeks.

What if I can’t have peanut butter?

No, worries. You can replace the peanut butter with any other nut butter.

Can I dip them without tempering the chocolate?

If you don’t want to temper the chocolate, or don’t know how, it’s no problem. You can use the chocolate coating recipe below – no tempering required.

When using the coating recipe, the chocolate will need to be stored in the fridge or it will soften / melt at room temperature. The benefit is that you won’t need to temper it.

When you temper chocolate, it’s stable at room temperature and doesn’t require being set or stored in the fridge. I temper my chocolate using cocoa butter silk – the easiest way to temper chocolate.

Alternatively, click here to buy silk in my shop.

What if I don’t have a silicone egg mould?

You can use any silicone mould to form these pralines. If you want an egg shape, but don’t have the mould for it, you can add a little more maple syrup and the mixture will seize up a little so that you can roll it out. The bottoms might flatten a little, if so, roll them again and, as the praline sets, it will become firmer and hold the shape.

Toppings:

Here are some ideas for toppings on your Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

  1. Sea Salt Flakes
  2. Chopped Nuts
  3. Sprinkles*
  4. Shaved Chocolate
  5. Cocoa Nibs
  6. Gold Flake or Powder

*I get mine from Amazon made by Honeyberry.
