5-ingredient Peanut Butter stuffed Reese's eggs Copycat recipeEaster is right around the corner! you know. … I don’t want the Easter Bunny to get lost, so I am writing this letter just to remind him.

5-ingredient Peanut Butter stuffed Reese's eggs Copycat recipeDear Easter Bunny,

I want just one thing for Easter: a basket filled with Reese’s peanut butter eggs. Do you think you can do this for me? Pretty pretty please? In return, I will make you never-ending Carrot Cake Muffins.
Remember when we were kids The Easter bunny knew what kind of candy you liked and you always got the good stuff. What’s your favorite Easter candy? Gooey neon-colored marshmallow peeps? Melty caramel or creme filled Cadbury eggs? There’s a lot to choose from. For me, the good stuff meant Reese’s Eggs. Unfortunatelly they only come out for a few months each year, but with this recipe, you can eat them all year long!
Let’s break down these peanut butter eggs…

Homemade Reese's Eggs
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Cookies
Serves: 10
  • 1 cup Peanut Butter
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • 8 oz Dark Cocoa Melting Chips
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1¼ cup Powdered Sugar
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In medium saucepan, combine the peanut butter, butter, vanilla and 1 cup powdered sugar over medium heat.
  3. Heat until completely melted and starting to bubble a little, stirring constantly.
  4. Remove from heat.
  5. Add the remaining powdered sugar at a time, stirring after each addition until completely combined.
  6. Set aside and let cool to room temp.
  7. You can chill dough in the fridge before rolling into eggs. Should make it a lot easier to handle.
  8. Shape dough into flat little ovals (or egg shapes, but real Reeses eggs are flat).
  9. Place the eggs on a lined baking sheet and stick them in the freezer for an hour or so, until it’s hard.
  10. Melt chocolate in microwave by heating for 30 seconds then stirring and repeating process until it is melted and smooth.
  11. Using two forks, roll each egg into the chocolate and place them back on the lined baking sheet.
  12. Place the eggs back in the freezer to let the chocolate set. It should take an hour or two.
  13. Best to store these in the freezer as well. If you store these in the fridge, they will become slightly soft.
  14. You can thaw a little before eating, or eat when frozen–either way, they’re awesome!

Whether you put them in someone’s Easter basket on Sunday, or share them on a dessert platter, you just have to make these peanut butter eggs this week!

I may be linking this up to these parties !

    I was wondering what peanut butter you used and/or recommend. Should I go with the Reese’s brand or use Jif? Also, would almond bard be the better route to dip the eggs in? Again, I would like to know your preference. Thank you!

    I have been making these for many years. If you add a tablespoon of corn syrup it will have a much better texture for dipping.. I also like Jig peanut butter, but I think this is a personal preference thing..

    1. Jennifer


      A tablespoon of corn syrup to which part: the filling or the chocolate coating?
      Thanks for clarifying! I want to try to make these and I don’t want to screw up!
