Peanut Butter Eggs

 If you have ever noticed I have a thing for peanut butter and chocolate!! I just can't get enough!  This recipe is so easy and they are just as good or better then the store bought version!!!
2 packages (18 sheets) graham crackers, crushed very finely
2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 sticks (12 Tablespoons) butter, softened
3 cups powdered sugar
Chocolate candy melts or almond bark, i also used dark and semi sweet chips - dark is my favorite!

In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine graham cracker crumbs, peanut butter, butter and powdered sugar. Mix on medium low until fully combined. You may have to use your hands to make sure it's completely blended.

Shape the mixture into eggs. I rolled it into golf ball sized balls, then formed the egg shape from there. I also made some smaller. I liked the two bite size ones!!  Place on a wax paper lined baking sheet and place in the freezer for one hour.

Once the eggs are frozen firm, melt your chocolate according to package directions. Place the eggs in the chocolate one at a time, and slide a fork under each egg to remove. Place back on wax paper lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with sprinkles and refrigerate eggs until chocolate is set.

I got this recipe from confessions of a cookbook queen.
