Make your own Reese’s peanut butter eggs!

This chocolate peanut butter Easter eggs recipe is super easy and delicious! My husband is a big fan of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, so these homemade Reese’s eggs are one of his favorite Easter treats.

It only takes a few minutes to whip up the ingredients. Then it is just a matter of filling the mold and letting the eggs set in the refrigerator or freezer. So easy and quick!

Only five ingredients are needed – creamy peanut butter, butter, powdered sugar, brown sugar, and chocolate chips. My favorite milk chocolate chips are Guittard brand, but I suppose you could use any brand you prefer. 😉

These Easter egg treats are especially easy when you have a silicone mold to use. This Wilton Silicone Petite Easter Egg Mold works great for me!

I use a spoon to scoop some of the chocolate into each egg cavity, then spread it up the sides a bit and make sure the entire bottom area is covered. Shape some of the peanut butter mixture into elongated discs that will fit right in the middle of each egg. Then use the spoon again to gently spread more chocolate over the top.

With this Easter egg mold, I end up with just enough chocolate, but a bit of the peanut butter mixture leftover. Your results may vary depending on the mold you use.

Carefully place the mold on a flat surface in the refrigerator to let the chocolate set and harden. Or put it in the freezer to speed things up!

This is the chocolate peanut butter hearts recipe, just with a different mold.
