One of my all-time favorite Easter treats are chocolate peanut butter Easter eggs. My mom has always put giant peanut butter Easter eggs in our baskets since I can remember (I think this is just a Southern/East Coast thing – I don’t see these for sale anywhere in the mid-South!). Several years back, when I was pregnant with Blakely after we just moved to Memphis, I was craving peanut butter Easter eggs some kind of bad, but again, not being able to find them around here, I decided to make my own!

One thing that was non-negotiable was that I must use dark chocolate. We are huge fans of dark chocolate over here and always have Ghiradelli chocolate chips on hand. I ended up combining several recipes to create my own version of these yummy chocolate-covered peanut butter Easter eggs and I wanted to share it with y’all in case you need an easy, last-minute Easter treat! I also found the super-cute Easter sprinkles at Target! These are perfect for Easter baskets OR to take with you to an Easter gathering with family and friends.
