Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter
1 C. chunky peanut butter
2 T. butter, melted
1 C. sifted powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla
1/2 C. miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1 (6-oz.) pkg. semisweet chocolate chips (1 C.)
2 t. cooking oil
In a medium bowl, combine peanut butter and butter. Heat in microwave on high power 45 to 60 seconds, until butter is melted and mixture is well-blended when stirred. Stir in powdered sugar and vanilla until blended well. Cool. Stir in miniature chocolate chips.
Shape mixture into Easter eggs, size desired. Place eggs on a wax paper-lined baking pan or plate; cover and refrigerate 3 hours or overnight until firm.
To coat eggs with chocolate, heat 6 ounces chocolate chips in a shallow glass bowl in microwave oven on high power about 1 minute, until melted and smooth when stirred. Stir in oil until well-blended.
Dip eggs one at a time into melted chocolate, coating completely. Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until set. Store, covered, in refrigerator.
Sprinkle tops of eggs with colored sprinkles before chocolate is set.
