Ingredients

For the peanut butter filling

for the chocolate coating

  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate morsels
  • 1 cup each blue and yellow candy melts optional
  • seasonal sprinkles optional
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil optional -- for softer chocolate

Instructions

  • Mix the peanut butter and powdered sugar until combined
  • Stir in the crushed graham crackers
  • Place a tablespoon of peanut butter mixture into an egg-shaped mold, and continue until all cavities are filled
  • Refrigerate or freeze until firm
  • Melt the chocolate and candy melts according to package directions
  • Dip the peanut butter centers into the chocolate until fully coated, and place on wax paper to dry (you can pop these into the refrigerator if you want)
  • Use a fork to make stripes over the eggs with the candy coating, if desired

Notes

For a thinner coating, add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil or shortening to the melted chocolate.
You can also use melted candy coating instead of chocolate.
