Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine sugar, margarine, cream cheese and vanilla extract. Divide the batter in half and place each half of the batter in a bowl on its own. Stir peanut butter into one of the bowls and coconut into the second.
  2. Using your hands, mold the dough into egg-shapes and arrange the forms on cookie sheets. Place the eggs in the freezer until frozen.
  3. Once the eggs have frozen, melt the chocolate and shortening in the top of a double-boiler. Dip the eggs into the chocolate until coated. Place the eggs on wax paper lined cookie sheets and return to the freezer to harden. After the chocolate has hardened the eggs can be kept in the refrigerator.

Thank you for this recipe, I have been looking for it. We made these when I was young and I wanted to make for my kids. I tinted a portion (about 1/3)of the cream mix yellow for the yolks and created "real eggs" by rolling the yolk in the white mix and shaping eggs. It was a huge hit.

After taking these to a church luncheon, I was inundated with compliments! I did double the butter this recipe called for which made the filling much smoother. I made vanilla, chocolate and butter pecan fillings. (For my butter pecan, I used Watkins Butter Pecan flavoring and about 1/2 cup of well chopped pecans for a third of the filling mixture.) All of the flavors were a big success!

Great recipe!! I made these for Easter and they were a huge hit. I used 16 oz of natural peanut butter (because I love peanut butter) and they were very creamy. Thanks for this recipe, I'll use it often.
