Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs & Bunnies

Happy Easter!!  We are having an Easter breakfast this morning with all the family.  These will be for after breakfast if we are good.  This recipe is from  

1/2 cup butter softened
2-1/3 cups confectioners sugar
1 cup graham crackers crumbs
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp half and half or milk
12 oz. semi sweet chocolate chips
1 tbsp vegetable oil

In a large bowl cream butter.  Gradually add the confectioners sugar, graham cracker crumbs, peanut butter and vanilla.  Add half and half or milk if necessary to get mixture to right consistency.  Shape into small eggs.  Place on waved paper baking sheets.  I used molds I had but you can shape into egg shape with your hands.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm.


In a microwave melt the chocolate chips and oil slowly and on a low temperature and stir until smooth.  Dip eggs in chocolate.  Allow excess to drip off.  Decorate with sprinkles while still warm.  Return eggs to wax paper.  Chill until set. Store in refrigerator.

Enjoy!!  Susan
