Homemade Peanut Butter Eggs Recipe 

Mama made peanut butter Easter eggs for years. She covered them in icing with our names and bunnies and flowers. This chocolate-dipped delight brings back good times.


– 1 (16 ounce) package confectioners' sugar – 1 cup creamy peanut butter – ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened – 1 tablespoon milk – 8 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate, cut into 1/2-inch chunk – 1 tablespoon shortening
