White Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs Recipe
Because it’s springtime and Easter time, we chose to use Easter egg molds and pastel sprinkles to make this fun dessert perfect for the season, but the recipe can be followed for any holiday or occasion using different molds and decorative add ins. Celebrating Valentine’s Day? Put a little red food coloring in the chocolate mixture and use heart-shaped molds. Christmas rolling around? Use green food coloring and Christmas tree molds. If they aren’t for any special occasion, just form them into little poppable truffle balls and serve them after dinner to make the family feel special. No matter how you look at it, this is one of the simplest, quickest, and most delightful dessert options for any time of the year!
These are so simple to make, you can even solicits the kids’ help in the kitchen. With very few ingredients, and just a short time to prepare and pour in the molds, the hardest thing about this recipe is waiting for them to harden up in the freezer!
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter (you can use crunchy if you prefer)
- 2 cups confectioner's sugar
- ¼ cup no salt butter, melted
- 2 tbsp chocolate milk
- 1-10 oz bag white chocolate melting wafers (We used Ghirardelli®)
- 1 tbsp coconut oil, softened
- Pastel sprinkles, optional
- Silicone egg mold - we used a large mold with 6 "eggs"
- Combine peanut butter, butter, and milk, then mix in the confectioner's sugar until you have a batter consistency. Set aside.
- Sprinkle your sprinkles in the silicone molds, spreading them out a bit so they are not all at the bottom.
- Melt chocolate wafers in a microwave-safe bowl on defrost or 1/2 power setting for 30 seconds. Remove, stir, and if not completely melted, continue in microwave for 15-second intervals until completely melted.
- Pour half of the mixture evenly into the molds, and with a spoon, "paint" some of the chocolate up the sides.
- Place about a tablespoon of the peanut butter in the center of each of the eggs, then cover with the remaining melted chocolate. You may need to remelt the chocolate in the microwave for 15 seconds depending on how long this step takes you.
- Place the mold in the freezer to allow the chocolate to harden, about an hour.
- Store in freezer until ready to eat. These can last in the freezer for about a week.
Home Chef Tip: If you prefer milk or dark chocolate, you can easily swap either one of those out for the white chocolate. Alternatively, if you have someone with nut allergies in the family, use sunflower seed butter instead of peanut butter.
