Around these parts of Pennsylvania peanut butter "eggs" are very popular at Easter time. For that matter all sorts of flavors like coconut, cherry, orange, even maple. Everyone has a recipe that's been handed down or created on their own. This is one I have come up with after some research.

They are time consuming to make but worth it!

I have also made this in bon-bon shapes for my nephew's communion party and EVERYONE was impressed. I am honored to share it with JAP!

Enjoy!
