Jennifer's Spring Easter Favorite Food - Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

What are some of your favorite food memories from Spring Holidays?

Holidays are the time for families and friends to gather to observe traditions, enjoy favorite recipes, share stories and decide who’s going to do the dishes.

Today, March 27 marks the start of Passover for Jews, followed by the observation of Easter on April 4 for Christians. A few weeks later, the Muslim holy month of Ramadan begins at sundown April 13.

Jennifer's Spring Easter Favorite Food - Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Easter Eggs
'B' Inspired by Blackstone's & KitchenWares

If you enjoy the food memories behind holidays, than I am certain like me, each of you has a favorite (or favorites) treat, dish, or meal that still lingers on your taste buds to this day.

One of my favorite childhood spring food memories was of these amazingly huge chocolate covered peanut butter eggs my mother included for years in our Easter baskets. Finally this year I found a similar recipe from the Amish. I have included this recipe along side a vegan friendly version so people like my sister and others with food restrictions or traditions, can also enjoy!

Here is one I found from the Amish that most reminds me of these decadent chocolate covered peanut butter eggs.

Healthy 4 Ingredient Reese’s Eggs

Recipe Source: Ambitious Kitchen, March 15, 2021

Easy healthy Reese's eggs made with only 4 simple ingredients! These homemade vegan Reese's eggs are low carb, gluten free, low sugar and have a glorious peanut butter middle for the perfect no bake treat that everyone loves.

  • 2/3 cup natural drippy peanut butter (just peanuts & salt)
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1-2 tablespoons of coconut flour
  • 3.5 ounces 72% dark chocolate bar, vegan if desired
  • Optional: Coarse sea salt, for sprinkling on top

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together peanut butter, maple syrup and 1 tablespoon of coconut flour. Add another tablespoon of coconut flour if the batter is runny. Depending on your peanut butter, you may need to use more coconut flour. Anywhere from 1-3 tablespoons is usually perfect. I normally never need more than 2 tablespoons for these eggs though. The peanut butter mixture should be sticky like a wet cookie dough. If your peanut butter dough looks too runny or soft, feel free to pop it in the fridge for 10-20 minutes before forming the eggs.

  2. Use a cookie scoop to drop peanut butter mixture by the tablespoonful onto a parchment lined small baking sheet. Slightly flatten the top of each with your fingertips and form into an egg shape if you'd like. Place baking sheet in the freezer for 20 minutes-1 hour. The longer the eggs sit in the freezer, the easier they will be to dip in chocolate.

  3. Once you are ready to coat the eggs, melt the chocolate bar in a small saucepan over very low heat, stirring frequently. Transfer melted chocolate to a small warm bowl. Room temperature or slightly warm melted chocolate is better than 'hot' melted chocolate; if the chocolate is too hot, it can melt the peanut butter.

  4. Quickly use a fork to dip each peanut butter egg into chocolate. Make sure to coat evenly. Transfer back to parchment-lined baking sheet and sprinkle with a little coarse sea salt if desired. Immediately place baking sheet back in freezer for 30 minutes to 1 hour or as long as you'd like. Makes 8 large peanut butter eggs. Keep in freezer until ready to eat.
