A few weeks have passed since I've had a What's Cookin' Wednesday, but spring break started this afternoon (a whompin' 3 days off from school, but I'll take what I can get) and I was itchin' to get in the kitchen with my kiddos.
Peanut Butter Eggs
If you all have followed me for a while, you know that my weakness is chocolate and peanut butter--Reese's Cups more specifically (well, Reese's Eggs, Reese miniatures, Reese minis--I'm not picky, but surely you see the pattern here) I LOVE Reese anything. ;)
BUT, let me tell you friends, as much as I love Reese's, I think I love this more!
I love them so much that 5 minutes after I was home, I was doing this!
That's right---mixing up a batch! I was craving something sweet, and since starting that silly diet I deserved a little sweet! ;) (*Side note, those GNC Shakes really work--and I get full real easy!)
All you need is a few simple ingredients (the ones pictured + marshmallow cream, butter, and sprinkles to make it look pretty!)
Basically you throw it all in your stand mixer. Mold it into little egg shapes.
I like to line cookie sheets with wax paper, and them put them on it.
Stick them in the fridge to firm up a bit. It makes dipping easier!
Dip them in yummy chocolate.
Let your kids help you every step! :)
Add sprinkles---add drizzle (it makes them look pretty!)
|My future employee right? Look at the drizzling :)|
Maybe not your husband---his is the big glob! :)
Let them harden. Store in fridge--after you eat a few! :)
So my pictures may not be the best quality---but we did do this as a family (which is QUALITY time!)
We've made them for a few years now (posted the recipe on FB last year). It's definitely a hit with me, and most importantly, my family--not just because it tastes AWESOME, but because nothing beats time spent with family, right? :)

**And, I'm just one step closer. Look what I made! ;)
(Except I have the phone number on the cupcake on the business card) ;)
Someday friends, I will get that store front--until then! ;)
