Genny's notes for this recipe:
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.
