Do you have one thing that you remember getting in your Easter basket every year?  Every year my grandparents would get us these big peanut butter Easter eggs with our names on them.  I looked forward to those eggs! They were amazing!

The other thing I remember is the 2 foot solid chocolate Easter bunny that we would get.  If you are laughing because there is no such thing, go right ahead.  My husband chuckles every time I talk about it.  He says my bunny gets bigger every time I tell it.  But seriously, the thing was huge…at least 2 foot tall!  I swear we were still gnawing on it in July :-)

A few years ago I started making my kids a giant homemade peanut butter Easter egg with their names on them.  I like to think it’s their favorite thing I put in their baskets.  It is a fun tradition that I am looking forward to continuing until they are out of college.  And then one day, I’ll make them for the grandkids.

Oh, my!  Did I seriously just type that?  Nothing like making yourself feel old.

I have been experimenting with different homemade egg flavors each year too.   This year I pulled out the Nutella.  I had a feeling it was going to be absolutely delicious dipped in white chocolate.  Turns out I was right!  You will want to make a batch of these eggs for this Easter season.

One word of warning though.  Since they taste delicious, do not make them too early.  Otherwise they will not last long enough to make it into the baskets.

Nutella Cream Eggs

Yield: 12 eggs

Nutella Cream Eggs

Nutella and marshmallow is a fun combination for a cute homemade Easter egg candy.

Ingredients

6 Tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cup Nutella
1/4 cup marshmallow cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups powdered sugar
10 ounces white melting chocolate
colored sprinkles or nonparils
pink sanding sugar

Instructions

  1. Beat the butter and Nutella until creamy. Add the marshmallow cream and extract and beat again. Slowly add the powdered sugar until a soft dough forms.
  2. Divide into 12 even balls. Shape the balls into an eggs shape. Place on a wax paper lined baking sheet. Freeze for 20-30 minutes.
  3. Melt the chocolate according to the package directions. Use a fork to hold each frozen egg in the chocolate. Spoon the chocolate over the egg. Tap the fork gently on the side of the bowl. Slide onto the wax paper lined tray. Let set.
  4. Dip the ends of each egg in the remaining chocolate. Sprinkle with the sanding sugar over another bowl.
  5. Spoon the rest of the chocolate into a plastic baggie. Heat it up first, if needed. Cut one tip off. Drizzle two lines in the center of the eggs. Top with sprinkles after each egg. Let set. Store in a sealed container on the counter. Makes 12 eggs.

Notes

*If your melting chocolate is too thick to dip, you can also add a little bit of shortening to thin it out.

    I seriously can’t believe you just wrote about grandkids! I’m hoping that is far far in the future. And those chocolate bunnies were about 2 feet tall. I will attest to it. :-)

    I saw a 2-foot-tall giant chocolate Easter bunny at Walmart last year and took a picture — they DO exist! I was really, really tempted to buy it until I realized it was milk chocolate. I much prefer dark! Although I love Nutella almost as much as dark chocolate, so I’d be super excited to find one of your eggs in my Easter basket. They look so cute and festive!
