Homemade Reese’s Eggs

Growing up, our favorite treat in our Easter baskets were Reese’s Eggs. They only come out for a few months each year, but with this recipe, I can eat them all year long.
There is just something about a Reese’s Egg that makes them better than any other holiday Reese’s treat. They are so easy to make, and have more peanut butter, with just the perfect amount of chocolate.
You are going to love these simple and festive Reese’s Easter Eggs. This is also a fun recipe to have the kiddos help out with.
But be warned, these are very addicting and once you have one, you will want another.

The fun thing about this recipe, is that you can make them all year long, making different shapes. You do’t have to wait for them to come out in stores, you can make them yourself. They also make a great neighbor gift or treat.

Here are some other festive Reese’s Treats you could make, with other cookie cutters:

  • snowflakes or snowmen for January
  • hearts for February
  • four leaf clovers for March
  • eggs for April
  • apples for September
  • pumpkins or ghosts for October
  • turkey’s for November
  • bells or trees for December

Or any other fun cookie cutters you have, would work just as well. They are so fun to make. Eggs and hearts are probably the easiest to dip, but any shape would be fun and festive.

  • 3 Cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 Cups creamy or crunchy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • oval or egg-shaped cookie cutter
  • 1-2 bags milk chocolate chips (11 oz. each), divided
  • 2 Tablespoons shortening


  1. Beat powdered sugar, peanut butter and butter together. Dough will be crumbly. Add two tablespoons of milk and continue to beat together, until the dough softens. (Note, dough will still be crumbly- this is fine!)
  2. Working with about 1-2 cups of dough at a time, roll the dough into about 1/2 inch thickness on a flat, floured surface, and use cookie cutter to make eggs.
  3. Place the eggs on a cookie sheet and chill in freezer for at least one hour.
  4. When ready to dip, melt 1 bag of milk chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon of shortening in a microwave. You may need a bit more shortening to thin it out.
  5. Dip each egg, covering completely, and place on wax paper until set.
  6. If you need more chocolate, melt second bag with more shortening.


I got about 20 eggs using my cutter and rolling to 1/2 inch thickness. The amount of chocolate needed will vary, again, based on thickness and shapes of eggs.
