DIY-Reese Peanut Butter Egg

Oh yeah its here……

reesesegg-sm

Have you ever had one of these?  Oh man I love them.  I know what you are thinking.  It is just a Reese’s Peanut butter cup in the shape of an egg can it really be all that different?  But I am telling you it is not just a new shape.  They taste better too.  I love them, almost as much as……

These! Now those Reese peanut butter cup eggs really are great.  But like most things homemade is even better.  These are over the top delicious, the texture is perfect and the darker chocolate really knock these out of the park. These are really simple to make.

The Whimsical Princess’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs

Ingredients

  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups Creamy Peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon Shortening

Directions:

Mix together the powdered sugar, peanut butter, and butter. Add the milk one tablespoon at a time until it becomes a nice workable dough.  It will be just like play dough, it will be really easy to work with.  Form the dough into egg shapes, and place in the freezer for about an hour.

Place the chocolate chips and shortening in a glass measuring cup.  Microwave 1 minute at a time stirring in between until completely melted.  (You can also use a double boiler if you prefer, but I am lazy)

Dip each egg in the melted chocolate and place on waxed paper until set. (I use a skewer and then slide the dipped egg of and cover the hole)

Once they are set you can trim any excess chocolate off that may pool at the base with a pairing knife to make them look pretty.  You could also decorate them with royal icing and make a really special Easter treat.

Update*****

I made these again for Easter and paid better attention to how I do it so I thought I would update this post with a few more tips!!

Your filling should look like this it is crumbly but will hold its shape when you apply a little pressure.

DSC_0335 copy

When you are ready to form your eggs grab a small amount and give it a good squeeze.

It’s ok, squeeze it like you mean it!

There see nice and pretty and ready for a lovely chocolate coat.

I got about 28, 2 inch eggs.

When I am ready to dip them I put a toothpick in the bottom, and dip it in the chocolate. Gently shake off the excess chocolate.  If you want to skip the whole trimming the bottom of excess chocolate just hold it for a minute or two before you set it down.  The egg is frozen and the chocolate will set up quickly and not puddle. I did wind up having to make an extra cup of chocolate when I did this, I don’t know if it was the technique or the number of eggs I made.

If your egg is wiggly on the toothpick it means they are no longer frozen enough so pop them back in the freezer for a little while more.  I can do about 8 each time I take them out.  You could also just keep them in the freezer until you are ready to dip each one.

I store mine in the fridge, they have a shelf life of at least two days could be longer. Ours never last longer than two days so I have no idea outside of that.

  2. Oh be still my chocolate peanut butter loving heart! We love the Reeses eggs, and hearts, and Christmas trees ( I don't think they make any other shapes but if they do, we've had them) but I don't love the price of the 6 pack at the rate my husband and son eat them so DEFINITELY trying this recipe. And definitely following the person who posted it!

  4. The eggs are definitely better then the cups. I think because it has more peanut butter. I can't wait to try this recipe!

  5. New to your blog {and a new follower}. These look fabulous! And I agree, the egg shaped peanut butter cups (or any of the holiday shaped ones) are way better than the regular :-)

  9. Hi there,
    Thanks for the recipe! I love Reese's, so can't wait to make these, but one question.... what is shortening? Is this a US thing? Or am I just totally ignorant and it's around in the UK too?
    Many thanks! xx Veronika

    2. being from Pa, I've made these for many years, along with coconut creme eggs...to make the shape is easy...I use a small serving spoon ...scoop out the amount I want and place the filling in my hand...almost egg shaped at that time...pinch any extra shaping if needed....usually not needed.. I place them on wax paper then freeze for about 10 minutes before dipping in chocolate. Hope this helps everyone...it is a little work but so worth it. Patsy

  10. Hi Veronika:

    I think you have it in the UK too. Do you have something called cookeen? This is what I found for shortening in the UK:

    Shortening is fat, like lard, margarine or butter. Specifically it's hydrogenated vegetable oil that is solid at room temperature. Try Cookeen (should be next to the butter etc in your supermarket).

    Doesn't that sound delicious? You can leave it out if you need to but your chocolate will be a little harder to work with and not as shiny.

    Good luck!

  11. OMG, I made these last week and they taste EXACTLY like the real thing. Everybody.....and i mean everybody (including the neighbors)are begging me to make more. I think I got 24 out my batch but i made them pretty big, next round i will make them smaller, more bite size. Thanks for the great recipe.

  20. Are you able to store these at room temp, or does the coating get messy?

  21. I kept mine at room temp and our coating was fine. You just may have them melt in your fingers a little faster...but is that really a bad thing?? ;)

  23. can I use butter instead of shortening?

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think it would be fine the shortening make the chocolate thin a bit and glossy. The butter may make it not set up quite as hard so it will melt faster in your hands so you have to gobble it up!

    #1 it depends on how big you make them and and honestly I can't remember but I think I got 10-15!

    #2 Sure you can use white chocolate. I think white chocolate is yucky so I have never tried.

    A big thank you to your husband and your family for the sacrifice you are all making for our country! I am guessing these would not travel well.

  43. I would love to make these, and I was just wondering if anyone has made these with Almond butter for those with Peanut sensitivities? And also, I am wondering if you could substitute coconut oil for the shortening since it starts out like a solid like shortening. Might give it that same texture when it hardens back up. Healthy isn't always as tasty,but might be worth a try!

  45. I just made these for my sister to give her for Valentine's Day. They taste even better than the Reese's brand imo. The peanut butter is a lot smoother than the slightly grainy stuff that comes in the packaged kind. Thanks!

  56. I just wanted to throw another idea out there for melting your chocolate. Use a small crock pot and melt almond bark on low. We did this a couple years ago at Christmas and went crazy dipping things (fruit, pretzels, marshmallows, etc) in chocolate.

  60. I made these, but cheated and made bars instead since we have a bit to go until Easter. I did add a touch of salt because the peanut butter mixture was to sweet (using salted butter as well) to even think about adding chocolate. I also added a touch of salt to the chocolate to enhance the flavor.

    ReplyDelete
  72. do you have to use shortening with chocolate?

    ReplyDelete
  73. My recipe for the peanut butter center is similar to yours, but I don't use milk. After I mix it all together and refrigerate, it hardens. When I'm ready to fill the peanut butter cups (I make dark, milk and white chocolate cups), I let it sit out a bit till it's soft enough to work with. I use the chocolate discs instead of chocolate chips (bought either from The Bulk Food Store or candy or cake store/s) so I don't add any shortening. If my chocolate is lumpy I use a whisk to get the lumps out instead of shortening. I agree with you that it's better than the Reese's.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I can't wait to try these!

    Has anyone tried cutting back on the sugar? Seems like these could be good with less, but don't know if that would mess up the texture needed to make the shapes.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Just went to the store to get the chocolate chips that I normally have on hand, but for some reason...(not naming names here)were missing from the shelf. I "happened" to browse by the "real deal" and I just have to say thanks a million - I'm positive I would be broke beyond belief if there weren't homemade alternatives. :)

  79. Can natural peanut butter be used for these (ex. Smucker's Natural), or would something like Jiff or Peter Pan be best? I saw that two people have already asked this, but I found no reply in the comments. Thanks! Making these for Easter :)

  80. The recipe calls for melted butter but farther down the post, you say NOT to melt the butter. Now, I'm confused! I just made mine and the peanut butter mixture came out crumbly. any suggestions?

    ReplyDelete
  81. Man you are right! I will have to make them again to confirm. If they are crumbly just add a tiny touch of milk to make it workable but don't go crazy or they won't form.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Just made these with natural peanut butter. Don't do it. Even after adding extra milk they were never as soft as play dough. Froze over an hour but they were very difficult to dip. Super crumbly. Won't make again or would use regular peanut butter.

Going to just give them out to kids on Easter since they won't mind the odd taste. The second batch I made I used 2 cups pb instead of 1 1/2, and still not very peanut buttery :( first time I ever made these alone.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I made these a few days ago! They are quite yummy, and taste just like the real Reeses, with a much higher ratio of peanut butter to chocolate! My filling was fine, I melted the butter and everything. The dipping was kind of a pain to do all of them, but it helped to keep the undipped frozen. I stuck a toothpick in the side, dipped, and shook the extra chocolate off, and quickly rotated the stick until it hardened. The really frozen ones hardened smoothly and quickly.

  100. Just made these tonight.. We 1st tried melting Chocolate in microwave.. it kinda burnt I guess because it got gritty.. We then used the double boiler. Its a pain to dip. We never did get them smooth like in the pics. They are deeeeeeeeeeelicious regardless but frustrated about the globs of chocolate on each one.

  101. These sound like Buckeyes that we make here in Ohio for the holidays.

  102. thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  103. What I find that helps end the "pooling" is to chill or freeze the cookie sheet. When you place the chocolate dipped egg on it, the chocolate instantly sets up. The frozen "egg" is a great idea though. I'm sure that helps too. I will give it a try next time! Thanks for this idea.

  113. My one concern when I saw the recipe was that I would taste more powdered sugar then peanut butter. I have made peanut butter balls before, same idea you just shape them differently, and that is what happened. After reading all the positive reviews I thought "what the heck I will give it a try." Not to be a Debbie Downer but my worst fear came true, I tasted more powdered sugar then anything. I even added more peanut butter. I am sorry to say that I was disappointed.

    ReplyDelete
  114. These are delicious! I made a batch last week & plan to make another tomorrow! The only thing I'll do different is add a little more peanut butter. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe!

  115. I was concerned about using so much powered sugar in this recipe (I can't take too sweet of treats and my grandson is diabetic)Coundn't sesist because I love anything chocolate and PB. I did a search of alternatives for powered sugar so i could cut it back to half the amount and still get the same PB filling texture. I ended up using 2/3 powered milk and 1/4 corn starch ratio, for the other 2 cups of powered sugar. The mix was still the same texture, but way less sweet, and also tasted more like peanut butter than powered sugar as Phillis had mentioned. I will continue to use this version instead. I may also continue to look for alternatives for the powered sugar just to try different variations. HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY, now that I got my choc./ PB fix!!!

  117. Yummy. Someone on Pinterest posted banana bites, freezing chunks of banana for about 40 min then dipping it in some chocolate mixed with peanut butter. Then freezing again. I have done this about 4 times. Its heavenly. But I use dark chocolate and sprinkling nuts or coconut on it. Either way, it is a bite of dessert and all you need.

  118. Oh wow I have to try these! I have been searching for a homemade peanut butter cup recipe for a while *Bookmarked! The Reese peanut butter cups just aren't the same anymore (are now GMO product). The chocolate has been diluted until its just not chocolate anymore and you can't fool me I'm a choco expert! :p Anyway this is great for my chocolate monster that comes out (often).
