My grandmother used to make these every year at Easter. They taste very similar to the 'Mary Sue' butter cream Easter eggs that they used to sell during Easter-time when I was a kid.

Directions

  1. Beat butter in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Mix cream cheese and vanilla into creamed butter until smooth; stir in confectioners' sugar until incorporated. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until mixture is firm, about 2 hours.
  2. Roll sugar mixture into small egg-shapes; arrange on a baking sheet. Refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours more.
  3. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.
  4. Melt chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. Dip eggs into melted chocolate using a fork or wooden skewer until evenly coated.
  5. Arrange dipped eggs on the prepared baking sheet; garnish with sprinkles. Allow chocolate to harden, about 30 minutes. Place eggs in paper muffin or candy cups and store in refrigerator.
  6. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Excellent. I rolled mine out on my counter with extra confectioner sugar. I was able to take my donut hole cutter and cut out little circles. I coated in chocolate. Everyone loved them. I even split half the dough and mixed coconut flavoring in one half. I will be making this recipe again and again. Thank you for sharing.
