These homemade treats filled with creamy peanut butter and coated in dark chocolate will rival anything in your Easter basket. And best of all, they’re easy enough for kids to make. Look for dark chocolate melting wafers (such as Ghirardelli) in the baking aisle of the supermarket. They melt easily and don’t require tempering, which saves you a step in the kitchen. Use a fork to dip the eggs into the melted chocolate so that the excess can drip off back into the bowl. And don’t worry about small irregular spots on the eggs before dipping—the chocolate will hide them. Decorate the eggs by piping them on royal icing flowers, or for an easier finishing touch, sprinkle with nonpareils in pastel colors. Chocolate-Peanut Butter Eggs can even serve as Easter place cards when piped with each guest’s name. Place them in cupcake liners, and set one on every plate.
