Wow, for one flat peanut butter "egg". Hmm but they are so good....
After looking at a few different recipes I settled on this one. I think these are BETTER then the store bought ones and I didn't have to go out and buy anything I didn't already have.
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pinch kosher salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1. In a large bowl mix the peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and salt with a wooden spoon until well combined. Then add the confectioners’ sugar and stir it well until is completely incorporated with the peanut butter mixture.
2. Use your hands to roll the peanut butter into egg-like oval shapes that are 1/4 inch thick and chill them on a plate in the fridge for about 1 hour.
3. In the microwave melt the chocolate chips until they are completely smooth. Remove the peanut butter balls from the fridge and dip each one into the melted chocolate until they are completely coated. Line a plate with wax paper and allow the chocolate to cool and harden before eating.
I only had salted butter on hand so I opted not to add the pinch of salt. I probably wouldn't have anyways since for the most part I'm an anti-salter. I also added about 1 teaspoon of shortening to the chocolate chips while melting them to make it and keep it smoother for dipping. Next time I will flatten them out a little bit more too.
