If you love Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs that come out every Easter time, then I guarantee you will love my copycat version. These Copycat Peanut Butter Eggs are incredible, and dare I say even better than the classic Reese’s eggs. And, they are made with real, ingredients, with nothing artificial, meaning, they are a more nutritious treat!
Since the classic Reese’s peanut butter eggs are filled with peanut butter, I’m sticking with that. However, if you are peanut-free, you can definitely make these with you favorite almond butter, cashew butter, or even sunflower seed butter, for a nut-free option.
To make these eggs, you need just 6 simple ingredients, which I am pretty sure you already have in your pantry!
To make these, it is super easy!
First, whisk together peanut butter, coconut flour, vanilla extract, and maple syrup. The dough should be thick. If it’s not, add a teaspoon of coconut flour.
Next, form 12 balls, and line them up on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Then, use your hands to form each one into an egg shape, and freeze for 20 minutes.
The next step is to make the chocolate dipping sauce, which you do by adding the chocolate chips and coconut oil to a microwave-safe dish, and melting in 30-second increments. Mine is usually perfect after two rounds in the microwave. Stir until the chocolate has nice and smooth.
If you are using cacao nibs, add them to the chocolate mixture.
Next, remove the eggs from the freezer, and one by one, gently dip each egg into the chocolate mixture, letting excess chocolate drip off, and then returning them to the baking sheet.
Return the tray to the feeder for another 30 minutes or so, to firm up. That’s it! Can you believe it?
You can store these in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to one week; or you can freeze them and pop them out when ever the sweet tooth hits! You can freeze them for up to 3 months.
