Ingredients needed for this recipe for peanut butter eggs: 

Here is a list of everything you will need to make your own batch of chocolate peanut butter eggs. There’s nothing surprising on this list, it’s all pretty straightforward. You can pick up all of these simple ingredients at the grocery store, you might even have them on hand right now! 

  • 1 ½  cups creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ cup butter, melted 
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package Chocolate Almond Bark 
  • Colored sprinkles, optional

The first step to make these tasty eggs is to blend the wet ingredients together.

Now that the wet ingredients are smooth and creamy we're ready to start adding in dry ingredients.

Can I substitute something for the chocolate almond bark? 

If you don’t want to use the almond bark for coating your peanut butter eggs you can swap that out for some other kind of coating chocolate. You can even use white or pink chocolate like in my Salted Caramel Easter Popcorn. It’s up to you, whatever works and whatever you have on hand will be fine. 

We're slowly adding in the sugar so the batter will thicken up and the middles of our chocolate peanut butter eggs comes together.I will say that the chocolate almond bark does add a little something extra that I really enjoy. The flavor adds a nice touch that makes this a unique chocolate peanut butter egg recipe! 

Here’s how to make these chocolate peanut butter eggs: 

To make your chocolate peanut butter eggs you will need to combine the peanut butter, butter, powdered sugar and salt in a bowl until they are smooth. 

You don’t want the mixture to be too crumbly that it won’t stick together…but also not too smooth so it melts into blobs! Add the butter in slowly if you are worried about it being too smooth or add a bit more powdered sugar to firm up the batter! 

It's going to be difficult to avoid eating this delicious batter for our eggs before they're finished!Next, you will want to line an 8×8 square pan with parchment paper. Leave a bit extra hanging over the edges so it’s easy to get the peanut butter batter out after it cools! 

Now the batter is pressed into a pan and can be put into the freezer until firm!Press your peanut butter mixture into the pan, make sure it is even all around the pan so you don’t have some pieces that are a lot thicker than others. 

You can use whatever shape cookie cutter you want, these are peanut butter eggs for Easter!Put the pan into the freezer and allow it to cool for about 30 minutes. This will make the batter stiff enough to stand up to being cut into shapes! 

The peanut butter eggs are ready to be coated in chocolate and enjoyed!Remove the pan with the peanut butter mixture from the freezer. Pull it out of the pan using the extra parchment paper that is hanging over the edges.

While the peanut butter eggs are freezing we can break the almond bark into squares and add it to a microwave-safe bowl, heat it up for 1 minute, stopping to stir after about 30 seconds. Only heat the mixture until it is mostly melted. Stir to finish the job so you don’t burn the chocolate!
