An American Easter Tradition: Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs


I can’t quite believe it, but Easter is right around the corner. This year just seems to be going by so fast…

I haven’t even really begun to think about putting together an Easter basket for Josh (or Tim!) yet. I’ve been a bit spoiled, in that the last few years, we have been in America for Easter, so all that was required was a quick trip to Target and I was all set.

Not so in England.

I don’t know, but it just isn’t Easter without Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs. Silly I know, but it’s the truth.

And of course, they don’t sell them here in the UK, so as with many things, I have to make it from scratch. Thankfully I found a great recipe here at The Whimsical Princess.

I made a batch today, cutting the recipe in half. I still ended up with about 12 eggs, which is more than enough.



The only thing I would say about the recipe, is that even though I cut it in half, I still added the full amount of milk to get the dough the right consistency.




It was kind of fun trying to get them into the shape of eggs. What do you think? They look more like chicken nuggets to me!




But those are all done now, hidden away in the fridge from Tim. I think he’ll get a big kick out of having those around at Easter; he loves them! And it will be Josh’s first try of them too. After all, I need to introduce Josh to these American traditions early!
