These are so Easter! Plus, they are one of the tastiest little creations I've made...seriously delicious. I could just eat the filling alone. Actually, I did eat a lot of the filling alone...
This recipe is for about 4 eggs, so you may want to double (or even triple) it if you want more.
About 6 oz of dark chocolate
1/3 cup cookie dough (I used chocolate chip)
6 baked cookies (I used gluten free chocolate chip)
2 Tbsp peanut butter
Bake the cookies according to the directions on our package.
Once they cool, crumble them up in a medium sized mixing bowl. Add the cookie dough and peanut butter, and mix until incorporated.
Dust your hands with a little flour (so the mixture doesn't stick to your hands as much) and shape into 'eggs.' Freeze them for about 1/2-1hour.
Meanwhile...In a double boiler, slowly melt the chocolate. Or you can use a microwave I've heard...not sure how to do that tough. If you use a microwave, be careful the chocolate doesn't burn.
Once the eggs have sat for an adequate amount of time, remove from the freezer, and drench with the melted chocolate. I actually took the 'eggs' and put them directly into the pot with the melted chocolate to ensure they were fully coated. Lift them out of the chocolate individually with a fork, tapping on the side of the pot with the fork to create a clean, smooth chocolate finish.
Let sit for a minute or two before using a metal spatula to transfer onto a clean plate for serving.
P.S. you can top the 'eggs' with colorful sprinkles or whatever else you're into (coconut? yeah. I topped with lavender because I love lavender and it makes me think of Spring).
P.P.S. below are the pics of the before chocolate drench, and the after chocolate drench.
