Mmmm…. Yummy stuff… Tonight after work I went over to Amelia and Tony’s house to make some delicious desert.
You see, before my mother passed away she sent us some peanut butter and chocolate eggs all the way from Pennsylvania. Everyone in the office loved them so much we asked for the recipe. I gave a copy to Steve, one to Ray or Denise and kept one. Needless to say, I misplaced mine, as did Steve. Denise had tucked it away in her recipe box though and found it the other day. So, now that I have a copy again I whipped some up. They’re easy to make and deliciously evil. The recipe is as follows…
2 bags of Nestle chocolate chips (11.5oz bags)
1lb 10X (powdered) sugar
2 tablespoons milk
½ stick margarine or butter (she used margarine)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
2 ½ cups Peter Pan peanut butter
In a double boiler melt 2 bags chocolate chips.
Put all other ingredients in another bowl and knead 10 to 15 minutes.
Shape into eggs (she used to roll them by hand).
Dip eggs in chocolate using a very small slotted spoon.
Decorate with colored icing after they dry.
Makes about 26 eggs.
