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!
