Ingredients and Substitutes

Scroll down to the recipe card below to see the full Peanut Butter Eggs recipe.

Use your favorite type of chip – semi-sweet, dark (my personal favorite for a nice contrast!) or even milk chocolate.

Thanks to its unique properties, coconut oil ensures that the chocolate melts smoothly when it cools and hardens quickly.

Choose all-natural, creamy peanut butter with only peanuts and salt for the purest taste. Swap it for cashew butter, almond butter, or even sunflower butter for a nut-free option.

Coconut flour serves as a thickener for the peanut butter filling. Although no substitutes have been tested, almond flour or oat flour might work in a pinch.

Pure maple syrup adds a touch of sweetness without any refined sugar. If necessary, honey can be used as a substitute.

Expert tips for success

Follow these tips to make the most delicious peanut butter eggs!

Don’t overheat your chocolate and coconut oil! Burnt chocolate tastes bitter. Heat in short steps and watch carefully.

Don’t worry about perfectly shaped eggs. Since these are homemade treats, a little rustic charm is in order!

Line your baking sheet with parchment paper to make it easier to remove and clean. No more wrestling with stuck candy!

Allow the chocolate coating to harden completely before stirring in. This ensures a nice, crunchy bite and prevents the chocolate from melting.

How to serve and store it

Once the chocolate coating has completely hardened, your peanut butter eggs are ready to enjoy! Allow them to thaw slightly while frozen for the perfect balance of creamy peanut butter and crunchy chocolate.

For a homemade touch, package these delicious treats in an Easter basket, gift bag, or even as part of a Halloween candy stash!

Take your sundae to the next level! Add a few peanut butter eggs to further enhance the flavor and texture.

For best results within a few weeks, store your peanut butter eggs in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The cooler temperature means the chocolate stays solid and the peanut butter filling retains its freshness.

Would you like to enjoy it longer? Peanut butter eggs freeze wonderfully! Store them in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. Defrost them just slightly before enjoying them.
