- 2 cups creamy peanut butter
- ¾ cup butter
- 3 ½ cups confectioners’ sugar
- 3 cups crispy rice cereal
- 1 (12 ounce) package semisweet chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons shortening
Combine peanut butter and butter in a mixing bowl until smooth; stir in confectioners’ sugar and crisp rice cereal until a dough is formed. Refrigerate the mixture for about 1 hour to allow it to be easier to work with. Shape mixture into egg shapes and freeze for 20 minutes.
Melt chocolate chips and shortening in a double boiler over low heat until smooth; dip egg shapes into chocolate. Place on waxed paper and allow to cool.
