Reeses's Peanut Butter Egg made for Easter

Warning! This article may contain nuts! Well, someone who is nuts about peanut butter and milk chocolate.

Unlike the regular Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, the candy is egg shaped, not in a cup, but it still has the same great taste. No more is the orange platic encasement that holds the peanut butter chocolatey goodness, but it’s replaced with the yellow, flower-covered wrap. At least for spring time.

Needless to say, I’m slightly biased. The creamy smooth peanut butter within the chocolate shaped egg feels like a pillow, soft and fluffy. It’s a perfect blend of two treats for one sweet. Other candy companies have tried to imitate the perfection that is the Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg, but fail and is, in no way, an acceptable substitute unless one is completely desperate for some peanut butter-y chocolate goodness.

The egg also comes in king size and is available at almost any store such as Walmart, HEB, Dollar General, and Walgreens.

If you’re not satisfied with eating the eggs the old fashioned way, we consulted Pinterest for a variety of recipe ideas to incorporate them into shakes, cookies and brownies.

Since some of the ingredients in these eggs are not friendly to all diets, you can even make a “copycat” version of them if you are vegan or vegetarian. Check out the links below for some delectable ideas for these fabulous treats!
