Three Easter Peanut Butter Eggs Dessert Ideas

You’d think we’d get a bit desensitized to candy after being around it day in and day out, but we have our favorite year-round treats as well as seasonal candies that we just go crazy for.

At Easter time, it’s Easter Peanut Butter Eggs.

You know them – from Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs to Zitner’s Peanut Butter Eggs and Gardners Peanut Butter Eggs, there’s something about the taste of an Easter peanut butter egg that hits differently. Now we could be content with just opening a pack and eating one of those Easter peanut butter eggs – but hey, it’s Easter and we want to get a bit fancy.  So we’ve whipped up some creative dessert ideas using… what else… peanut butter eggs!

Easter Peanut Butter Eggs A La Mode Ice cream tends to make just about anything taste better including a peanut butter egg. We don’t want the ice cream to overpower this delicious dessert, so it’s best to choose a mild flavor of ice cream like butter pecan or vanilla. Spoon a few scoops of ice cream into a bowl, and press the center of the ice cream in a bit. Place a Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg smack dab in the middle, put some whipped cream on top, and add a maraschino cherry. Life is good.

Caramel Pecan Glaze We love the Gardners Peanut Butter Meltaway Eggs Tray it’s so convenient to just take the twelve Easter peanut butter eggs right out of the tray and place them on a dish and dig right in. Of course, around here a dozen is never enough, so we need quite a few more! Once we have them plated, we drizzle some Hershey’s Caramel Syrup over them, sprinkle some pecans and different nuts over the top, and voila, you just created a gourmet version of our favorite Easter candy.

Easter Peanut Butter Eggs, Personalized Choose a more lengthy chocolate Easter egg for this dessert idea, such as  Zitner’s Peanut Butter Eggs which are just about the perfect size. Since these are unwrapped, they’re ideal for this treat.  Pick up your favorite decorative food gels and write each family member’s name on the egg, along with a few extra designs for those who want seconds. Allow the gel to dry, package each in pastel cellophane, and close with a ribbon. Gift to each of your family members at dinner, creating an Easter gift that doubles as dessert!

From Bite Size To Giant: Getting to Know Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs

When it comes to the ultimate candy flavor combination there’s no doubt that chocolate and peanut butter are the hands-down winners. These two flavors blend exceptionally well, and sure, there are other flavors that bond well with chocolate, but when it comes to our favorite Easter chocolates, Reese’s Easter Eggs have a special place in our hearts. Just ask the Easter Bunny – he has a hard enough time getting all of us at our huge candy warehouse to give them up come Easter time, but we know we have to share, too. This year, we’re sharing even more Reese’s Chocolate Easter Eggs varieties:

Snack Size Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs – Sometimes the greatest surprises come in the smallest of packages, and with each bag of Reese’s Snack Size Easter Eggs we can’t help but think it’s absolutely true.  What makes this bag “eggstra” special is that it contains a mix of traditional chocolate/peanut butter and decadent white creme/peanut butter eggs.


Traditional Reese’s Easter Eggs – There’s nothing wrong with a delicious tradition, and the regular size Reese’s Easter Eggs pack all the chocolate-peanut butter flavor we know and love.


 

King Size Reese’s Easter Eggs – Well, sometimes bigger can be better, especially when it comes to Reese’s! When a bite size or regular size Reese’s Egg just won’t cut it, take a step up to King Size Reeses Easter Eggs. You won’t be sorry!


 

Giant Reese’s Easter Egg – You mean Reese’s makes an even larger peanut butter egg? Oh yes, and it even comes in its own individual packaging, perfect for including in an Easter basket or simply putting a pastel-hued bow on it and gifting it to the biggest Reese’s fan in your household Easter morning.

We couldn’t be happier that Reese’s decided to take their traditional peanut butter cups and transform them into Reese’s Easter Eggs. Every holiday is just a little more delicious with its very own Reese’s creation, and you can bet Reese’s Eggs will find their ways into our own Easter baskets and we hope yours, too! We suppose we’ll let the Easter Bunny raid our candy shelves for Reese’s, as long as he leaves a few for us.

What Does The Easter Bunny Snack On? Mini Cadbury Eggs, Of Course!

We have to admit, we love Cadbury Eggs and look forward to every Easter when those delicious chocolate treats start arriving at our huge candy warehouse.  And we’re not the only ones!  We just happen to know that the Easter bunny’s favorite snack just so happens to be Mini Cadbury Eggs.

How did we find this tasty morsel of information out?

Well, where did you think he gets all that Easter candy for those Easter baskets from?! The Easter bunny works up quite an appetite while searching our candy warehouse shelves for just the right delicious Easter candy, and he always reaches for the milk chocolate crisp shell of Mini Cadbury Eggs.

We certainly don’t mind as it’s not every day you see a six-foot-tall bunny in Altoona, PA!

While our friend Peter Cottontail prefers the milk chocolate Mini Cadbury Eggs, so also scarfs down a few delicious Cadbury Creme Eggs before moving on to some of his other favorites like Zitner’s Butter Krak Eggs, Whoppers Mini Robin Eggs, and some Jelly Belly Jelly Beans! Hey, wouldn’t you work up quite an appetite delivering chocolate candy all day and having to find creative places to hide the Easter baskets every year? We thought so.

The Easter bunny then usually takes a break from his Mini Cadbury Eggs indulgence to tell us about his travels from visiting the palm tree lined streets of Southern California to the rolling plains of the Midwest, where he tries his hardest to resist hiding the Easter baskets in the cornfields – what a pesky bunny!

He caps off his annual Easter candy delivery by making a stop across the pond at the Cadbury factory in Skarbimierz, Poland. He loves to see all the friendly faces making his favorite snack, and we’re sure he leaves with an armful of them. With the amount of Cadbury Eggs the Easter bunny snacks on, we’re glad to hear that the Cadbury factory makes millions of these delicious chocolate eggs a day!

Chocolate Easter Bunnies, Oh How Do I Choose?!

To say that we have “a few” different types of Easter candy would be an understatement! We know you’re bouncing around like a busy bunny planning everything for Easter – from putting together a lavish Easter dinner to helping the Easter bunny with his Easter candy shopping.

When it comes to Easter treats, you’re probably thinking about jelly beans and peanut butter filled chocolate eggs, but there’s one favorite that has stood the test of time and one that every kid – young and old – looks forward to.  Yes, you guessed it – the chocolate rabbit!

Chocolate bunnies are one of those special treats that just has to be included in every Easter basket.  So to make it easy for you, we’ve listed our top-selling chocolate rabbits right here!  Oh, and don’t worry…. we won’t say anything if you put all of them in your shopping basket!

Reese’s Chocolate Easter Bunnies
Reese’s is simply the master of all things chocolate and peanut butter so we had to put these on the top of our list.  This year, Reese’s has a four-pack of individually wrapped chocolate bunnies that are filled with their famous, delicious, creamy peanut butter.  Since there are four of these in a box, they’re perfect for sharing… or not.

HERSHEY’S Solid Milk Chocolate Bunny
When it comes to chocolate, HERSHEY’S is the first brand to come to mind and their solid milk chocolate Easter bunny is a classic Easter candy tradition. You’ll likely remember their chocolate Easter bunnies from your Easter baskets growing up so be sure to fill your kid’s baskets with one of these all-time faves.

HERSHEY’S Chocolate Bunnies

Lindt Dark Chocolate Gold Bunny
Easter only comes once a year and so does the Lindt Dark Chocolate Gold Bunny.  Lindt dark chocolate is rich and full of cocoa flavor and this chocolate rabbit is no exception.  If you have a dark chocolate fan on your Easter gift list, don’t pass this one up!
