Homemade Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs { & How To Make Powdered Sugar! }

Skip another trip to Target and make your own Reese's peanut butter chocolate eggs at home this weekend!
You can go super all natural, or more common, and with more sugar, but still very few ingredients.

I combined a couple different recipes to make this festive treat!

Try one of these here:

A Clean Bake 

Combine equal parts room temperature creamy peanut butter with powdered sugar for the filling.
The powdered sugar gives these a more exact replica texture, but use all natural peanut butter and a bit of honey instead, for a more healthful candy. If you go with the second option, add a bit of coconut flour to dry out the mixture.

Shape mixture into flat ovals, and freeze until firm.

For the coating, you can use melted milk chocolate chips and a bit of oil or shortening for a glossy sweet shell, or go healthier with unsweetened cocoa powder, coconut oil, and maple syrup or honey.

Dip peanut butter eggs, and put back in freezer until set.

Any and all of these options are delicious and fun, it just depends on how traditional or how healthful/natural you want to be.

I also made some coconut ones!!

So! Powdered Sugar.  Um, did you know you can just put regular white granulated sugar in a high speed blender and...voila! Instant powdered sugar! Done and Done. Genius!
