Well that was fun… — March 19, 2008

Well that was fun…

Peanut butter and chocolate is a wonderful flavour combination. Its funny because peanut butter alone isn’t one of my faves. But if is in a sauce on some Asian food or paired with chocolate; well lets just say that there are some foods that can make me…very compliant. This is one of them.

I pulled this off of Recipezaar because it was so easy and quick. Good thing as my body is complaining rather loudly this week. And I got to play with chocolate!…and get it everywhere! Yum.

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Eggs

 

1/4 cup Butter

1/4 cup firmly packed Brown Sugar

3/4 cup Powdered Sugar

1/2 cup smooth Peanut Butter

1 tsp Vanilla

1 (12 ounce) package Semi- or Bitter- sweet Chocolate Chips (your choice)

2 tbsp Shortening

 

In a 1 quart microwavable bowl, microwave the butter and brown sugar together on 100% (high) for 1 to 1-1/2 mins, stirring every 30 seconds or until brown sugar is melted. Stir in powdered sugar, peanut butter and vanilla extract.

 

Shape by teaspoonful into egg shapes; chill. (I used a 2 tbsp food scoop)

 

In double boiler or heavy saucepan, over low heat, melt chocolate chips together with the 2 tbsp of shortening.*

 

With a wooden skewer, dip each egg into chocolate chip mixture, coating completely. (I used a couple of forks)

 

Place on a baking sheet that has been covered with waxed paper. Chill several hours.

 

Keep stored in the fridge.

* I did this in the microwave. See this site for info on tempering chocolate
