Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs!
1 stick unsalted butter
3 cups creamy peanut butter
8 oz. package cream cheese
2 lbs powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Almond bark, dipping chocolate
Allow your butter and cream cheese to come to room temperature then blend together until well combined. Add peanut butter, vanilla, and salt and continue mixing. Slowly add sugar and mix well after each addition. The mixture will become very thick and have the consistency of a dough. Once sugar is completely combined form into the shape of an egg and place on a tray lined with parchment paper. Place eggs in the freezer for 30 minutes, this makes dipping them in chocolate much easier. Melt the dipping chocolate in a double boiler. Once chocolate is completely melted dip each egg until covered and then place back on tray with parchment paper. To decorate, I melt some white chocolate and color it with food coloring. Place melted white chocolate in a ziplock bag and snip the corner off. Pipe a zigzag design on top of each egg. Some people make flowers to place on top of egg or write names using icing or chocolate.
