Homemade Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Eggs

~ 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
~ 8 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter (smooth is fine, too)
~ 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
~ 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
~ 1 pinch kosher salt
~ 1/2 cup chocolate chips

1. In a large bowl mix the peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and salt with a wooden spoon until well combined. Then add the confectioners’ sugar and stir it well until is completely incorporated with the peanut butter mixture.

2. Use your hands to roll the peanut butter into egg-like oval shapes that are 1/4 inch thick and chill them on a plate in the fridge for about 1 hour.

3. In the microwave melt the chocolate chips until they are completely smooth. Remove the peanut butter balls from the fridge and dip each one into the melted chocolate until they are completely coated. Line a plate with wax paper and allow the chocolate to cool and harden before eating.

Just plain perfect, don't you think?
