These chocolate covered Reese’s Cream Eggs are a fun treat to make for Easter baskets. They are easy to decorate using candies and sprinkles.
Now that our kids are older, our Easter weekend looks a little different. When the kids were little we would plan a big egg hunt on Saturday, and each of them would get a basket of fun candies and little toys. Now that they are older, we do not hide eggs and candy in our yard.
I do still put together a little Easter basket for them. It’s the one thing that I haven’t given up doing. My guess is that I will send them little Easter treats at college too.
At least I know the boys love their peanut butter balls, so making those into a large egg with their name is an absolute must every year. I have been doing that since they were little, so I can’t stop now.
Each year I try to make a new Easter egg version too. These nutella cream eggs from a few years ago were so fun to make…and they tasted awesome too.
I had a container of the Reese’s spread in the pantry that was just begging to be used. This fun spread is sold in the stores by the peanut butter if you are wondering.
Just a word of warning…do not eat this by the spoonfuls! One taste and all of a sudden the jar might be empty! Not that I would know about this kind of thing…
I made these eggs just like I make my peanut butter balls, but I used the Reese’s spread in place of peanut butter. Mix all the ingredients until it is creamy and can be rolled into a ball.
For these eggs I rolled them into 12 even balls, then flattened each one and shaped it into an egg shape. After I was all done doing this, I realized that pictures probably would have been helpful. Maybe next time?
Decorating these eggs is so fun. You can use any candy or sprinkle to decorate the tops of the chocolate.
Because the Reese’s Cream Eggs are frozen when you dip them, the chocolate will set up too fast to actually put the decorations on at first.
Just reheat the chocolate and drizzle it on top, or you can use a toothpick to make dots of chocolate where you want the candies. You can dip the ends in the chocolate and add any color of sprinkles that you like too. I went with chocolate jimmies today, but orange sanding sugar would have been fun on these!
I have a feeling these pretty little cream eggs are not going to make it until Easter. I guess that means more egg decorating is in our future.
