Chocolate Peanut Butter Easter Eggs Recipe @pinch

Ok, we see why Genny's grandchildren love these Chocolate Peanut Butter Easter Eggs. They are addicting and taste like a homemade peanut butter cup. Once chilled, the peanut butter eggs are rich and creamy with a hard chocolate shell. Adding coconut to the peanut butter filling adds a nice texture to the center. Easy to make, these will make a lovely addition to dessert on Easter. I've been making these yummy tasting Chocolate Peanut Butter Easter Eggs for several years now. I don't remember where I got the recipe, but my grandchildren beg me to make them so they can have some in their Easter baskets. Of course, I always oblige. Anything to see the smiles on their faces when they bite into them.
