Crunchy chocolaty shell, smooth peanut-butter-cream-cheesy center... You're gonna love these!
8 oz cream cheese
2 Cups smooth (or crunchy if you like) peanut butter
3 Tbsp earth balance (softened)
1⁄2 pound of powdered sugar
1⁄2 tsp salt
1 1⁄2 tsp vanilla extract
24 oz (2 bags) chocolate chips (I used whole foods bulk chocolate chips)
Mix all ingredients together (except the chocolate) with a mixer until smooth. Scoop into little balls and place on a wax paper covered cookie sheet. I think my mixture made about 55. Place in the freezer for at least an hour.
When they're frozen, melt chocolate on medium - low. Be so careful not to burn the chocolate - it sucks. Dip the balls - eggs - haha oh my -whatever you'd like to call them in the melted chocolate and place on a wax paper covered cookie sheet or plate. I used a fork to fish them out. You should get a nice thick layer of chocolate.
When they're cooled, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator....if they even make it that far....
p.s. isn't my easter plate so cute?!
