Ingredients

Instructions

  • For the Peanut Butter Filling: Combine melted butter, crushed graham crackers, peanut butter, and confectioner’s sugar into a large mixing bowl. Using a hand mixer, combine ingedients over low to medium speed for approximately 1 minute. Cool mixture in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  • When the peanut butter filling has chilled, it will be easier to work with. Take a heaping tablespoon of the peanut butter filling and press between two Town House crackers. Set aside on a baking sheet until the next step.
  • When the peanut butter cracker “sandwiches” have been made, set a medium mixing bowl over a small pot of boiling water. Pour the semi-sweet chocolate chips, 3 tbsp butter, and ¼ cup milk into the medium mixing bowl. Using a whisk, stir all the ingredients together until they have completely melted and combined into a rich chocolate sauce.
  • When the chocolate sauce has melted, using a set of tongs, dip each peanut butter cracker “sandwich” into the chocolate mixture until it is completely coated. Place onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper until all sandwiches have been coated. Allow to chill in the freezer for at least 60 minutes.
  • Melt the Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips and ¼ cup milk in a small microwaveable dish. Using a piping bag with a fine tip, drizzle the melted peanut butter over the chilled chocolate eggs. Chill for another 20 minutes and serve.
