Peanut Butter Eggs

If I had to pick a favorite Easter treat, it would Reese's peanut butter eggs.  They're pretty much awesome!  And the entire family loves them.  Not sure if that's a good thing, or a bad thing.  Probably a good thing.  It saves me from eating all of them by myself.

These Peanut Butter Eggs are amazing!  They practically disappeared right before my eyes.  I turned my back on them to find my camera to take a picture and they disappeared.  All that was left was a darling little 2 year old with chocolate covered hands and brown drool.  I guess that means they disappeared right behind my back!

1 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons butter, softened
2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 pound milk chocolate chips

Combine peanut butter and butter in a large bowl and mix until smooth.  Add graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar and powdered sugar, and mix until well mixed.  Shape dough into egg shapes and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Freeze for 30 to 60 minutes.  Place chocolate in a small microwave safe bowl and melt in 30 second increments in the microwave, stirring well after each 30 seconds.  Dip eggs, one at a time, in melted chocolate.  Tap on the edge of the bowl to remove excess chocolate.  Place dipped eggs on parchment paper to set.

If you prefer a thinner chocolate, add 2 tablespoons shortening to the chocolate before melting.
To dip my eggs and use a plastic fork and break off the 2 inner tines, leaving just the outside 2 tines.
