"Turned out GREAT! I even used crunchy peanut butter too. I also decorated the eggs with colored white chocolate on top of the chocolate coating. I used a dipped spoon and swirled the coloring back and..." See more forth. They looked great too!"
"I made these for Easter and they were a big hit! I used only 3 cups of powdered sugar and the eggs were plenty sweet. I also added more rice krispies so that the eggs were crunchier. I wound up run..." See morening out of chocolate and probably used 1 1/2 bags of choc chips total. Good recipe, but time consuming."
