Theo is officially 100% mobile. He is crawling. And Fast! This kid can move. And he definitely has an agenda. Most of the time its to crawl to the dog bowl. And splash in the water. I’m starting to miss the good old days where you could just plop him down anywhere and not get worried he is going to roll off the bed. It’s all fun though. Soon he will be walking around and old enough to hunt for eater eggs!

The best part of Easter? Reese’s peanut butter eggs! Seriously. They have perfected the peanut butter to chocolate ratio in the egg shape. Waiting all year is totally worth it for a bag of them. 
 
But, you know what’s even better than buying peanut butter eggs? Making them at home! They are so so easy! 
And since Theo isn’t old enough to decorate eggs with, I’m spending my time perfecting these homemade chocolate peanut butter eggs. What I love about the homemade version is #1 you can impress people with your candy making skills, #2 they are healthier than the processed version, and #3 they don’t have that gritty sugary texture. 
 
 
The ingredient list is small and simple. Just creamy peanut butter, butter, honey, almond flour, salt, chocolate, and coconut oil. The process is even simpler. Just shape the peanut butter mixture into eggs, freeze, then dip in chocolate and let them set. No baking or technical skill required. You can even use the microwave to melt the chocolate if you want.

Ingredients
  1. 1 cup unsalted peanut butter, room temperature
  2. 2 tablespoon butter, room temperature
  3. 2 tablespoon honey
  4. 2/3 cup almond flour
  5. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  6. 1 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  7. 1 tablespoon coconut oil
Instructions
  1. In a medium sized bowl, mix together the melted peanut butter, butter, and honey.
  2. Stir in the almond flour and salt until it forms a sticky dough.
  3. Let peanut butter mixture chill in the freezer or fridge for about an hour or until dough is firm enough to scoop and shape into eggs.
  4. Line a plate or tray with parchment.
  5. Scoop out a tablespoon at a time and roll into a ball. Flatten the ball slightly and pinch one end a bit to shape into an egg. Freeze the peanut butter eggs for 20;minutes.
  6. While the eggs are freezing, melt the chocolate. Place chocolate and coconut oil in a microwaveable bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Remove and stir. Microwave for another 30 seconds. Remove and stir. Repeat until chocolate is completely melted.
  7. Remove peanut butter eggs from freezer and drop one egg into the melted chocolate. Use a fork to flip it over and then gently scoop it out with the fork. Tap the fork on the side of the bowl to allow excess chocolate to drip off of the peanut butter egg. Lay the chocolate covered peanut butter egg back onto the parchment lined tray. Repeat with remaining eggs.
  8. Place the tray of eggs back into the freezer for 10 minutes until chocolate is set.
  9. Best served straight from the freezer.
