How to make Sugar-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs
Let’s get Melty. Melt peanut butter and butter together in a microwave safe bowl for 30-60 seconds and stir until well mixed.
Add the Vanilla’s. Once everything is melted and well mixed, stir in the vanilla extract and vanilla cream stevia
Fill the egg molds stage 1. At this time you will need to fill the egg molds up only half way up and freeze for 1 hour.
Remove the frozen peanut butter eggs. After an hour has passed, remove the peanut butter eggs from the freezer and and from their molds and set aside.
Make the chocolate coating. We are now moving onto the chocolate coating and for that you will need to melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave for 30 seconds, then stir until smooth.
Pour the chocolate mixture. Take your melted chocolate mixture and pour it into the molds only going half way up.
Place the frozen peanut butter eggs into the chocolate. Grab those frozen peanut butter eggs, it is now time to press down into the chocolate. Press them down to about the middle and so that the chocolate comes up and over the peanut butter.
Gently spread. With a spoon, gently spread the chocolate to fully cover the peanut butter if needed.
Place in the refrigerator. Place your molds into the refrigerator until the chocolate fully sets up, about 1 hour.
Remove from mold. Once your chocolate has set, gently remove your eggs from the molds and enjoy!
Questions, Answers, Tips & Tricks:
What trays did you use?
I used these Silicone Molding Trays and they came out perfect! My family was super impressed with how professional these looked, but all the credit goes to the silicone molds, lol
Do I need to refrigerate my eggs?
Yes! Letting your eggs set is a super important step in the process. I know it adds time, but you will thank me later when the set as prefect as a Reese’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Egg!
Do I need to spray the molds?
Nope! Don’t you just love when there is less prep? I know I do! There is no need to spray the molds first (with this recipe). Once your eggs have set, they will pop right out when you go to remove them.
What type of Peanut Butter did you use?
Whenever I am making a recipe that calls for peanut butter, I use my very own homemade peanut butter that I make and store. Want to make your own peanut butter, check out the video!
ChozZero vs. Lily’s Chocolates
For this recipe, I used ChozZero. However, this is truly a personal preference. I started choosing ChozZero over Lily’s chocolates (even though Lily’s brand is more easily found in most grocery stores) because I noticed I’d always end up with an upset stomach. The ChocZero brand of chocolates does not have the same effect on me, but it is truly a personal preference!
How long can I store my chocolate peanut butter eggs?
If you (and/or your family) are about to refrain from eating them all, you can store them in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. I truly don’t think they will last that long. Now, if you are nothing like me and able to practice restraint, you can also store them in the freezer for 3 months.
Pro-Tip on Storage: They definitely need to be kept in the fridge though. When left at room temperature, your eggs will get melty.
