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.
In a mixing bowl, cream peanut butter, and butter until well mixed. Fold in coconut, nuts and 1 cup sugar; mix well.
Sprinkle some of the remaining sugar on a board. Turn peanut butter mixture onto board; knead in enough of the remaining sugar until mixture holds its shape when formed. Shape into small egg-shaped pieces. Cover and chill for 1 hour.
In a double boiler over hot water, melt chocolate chips and shortening, stirring until smooth. Dip eggs; place on waxed paper to harden. Chill.
