Procedure for preparing Easter Chocolate Eggs Recipe
Mix peanut butter, butter and icing sugar together and prepare a soft dough. Now make balls of the dough and shape them in the shape of an egg.
Arrange these egg shaped pieces on a greased foil/plate and refrigerate them for 1-2 hours so that it becomes firm and its easier to dip them in chocolate.
Meanwhile melt chocolate and gelatine in a pan by indirectly heating it i.e. place the pan on top of a bowl with boiling water but make sure that the bottom of the pan of chocolate doesn’t touch the surface of the water in the bowl.
Now take the refrigerated egg shaped pieces and dip them in the chocolate with the help of a fork and let the excess chocolate drip away, then put them on a greased foil/surface and decorate it with candies of your choice and then put them away in the refrigerator to set for at least 10 hours.
Your Easter chocolate eggs are ready to be eaten.
