Chocolate Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

Genny Miller Recipe

By Genny Miller gendee

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.
