Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs

Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs

I was at the grocery store a couple weeks ago and strolled past the Easter section and then promptly rolled myself back on up because I saw my kryptonite. The Reese's Peanut Butter Egg. (also my kryptonite is gummy peachies. Or anything gummy really) No idea why this egg shape gets me, but the Reese's people have me duped because I feel like there is something a little more special about the egg as opposed to the regular cup. 

So I bought myself a king size pb egg package and headed home. And no, I did not share with Dave. Not even guilty. Once they were gone, I kept craving peanut butter and chocolate so I decided to search for a copycat recipe. Found one, tweaked it by adding more peanut butter, less powdered sugar and I used a combo of milk chocolate and semi sweet chocolate and made myself some giant peanut butter egg treats. 

These were way easier than I thought they would be and with way fewer ingredients than I thought. I had everything I needed in my pantry already. I could have been making these for years and I didn't even know. Such a shame. 

Give these a try and let me know if you think they stand up to the original. These would also be a fun dessert to make with your kiddos for a fun break from dying eggs and stained fingertips.
