Easter Peanut Butter Chocolate Eggs

The following recipe and photography were provided by local blogger Abby Thome of The Thome Home.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Eggs are the perfect sweet treat to make with the little ones in your life over Easter weekend.

Peanut butter-filled chocolate eggs are an extremely popular candy on the grocery store shelves each spring, and for good reason! A creamy peanut butter center coated in milky chocolate is a combination that always pleases.

The only downside is that these candies are loaded with unwanted sugar and preservatives. So, it got me thinking, why not make them a bit healthier at home?

Heinen’s honey roasted nut butter, chocolate chips and organic coconut oil are three key ingredients to making this irresistible Easter treat. The best part? These eggs can be made days, even weeks in advance and kept in the freezer until you are ready to enjoy!

By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
