Servings 16 eggs


  • 1 silicone egg-shaped mold


  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter - softened
  • 4 ¾ cups candy melts colors of your choice


  • In a small bowl mix the peanut butter with the butter until it is light and fluffy.
  • Add in the confectioner's sugar and vanilla. Mix until combined.
  • In another bowl, melt the candy melts one color at a time, in 20-second intervals in the microwave, until completely melted. Make sure they do not burn. You may need to set the microwave to 50% power.
  • Fill each cavity of the egg mold with the melted chocolate. Turn the mold upside down above some parchment paper, and allow the excess chocolate to drip out.
  • Now turn the mold upright for a little while so the chocolate can harden for about 10 - 12 minutes or 5 minutes in the refrigerator.
  • Meanwhile, place the peanut butter mixture into a piping bag, so you can fill the candy cavities easily.
  • Once the chocolate has set, add the peanut butter filling into each mold - filling them ⅔ full with a piping bag. Do not overfill.
  • Seal with another layer of the melted chocolate and scrape the mold to remove the excess chocolate on top.
  • Place in the refrigerator for 10 - 15 minutes until completely set and then remove them from the mold.
  • Repeat the steps 3 - 8 for the rest of the chocolate for each color you are using. It is important to make them by color so when you turn the mold upside down you don’t mix the colors and you can reuse what is on the parchment paper.
  • Once you have done this with all of the colors you are ready to enjoy.


Use fresh parchment paper for each color of candy melt so that you can reuse it for making the rest of the eggs.
