You’d think we’d get a bit desensitized to candy after being around it day in and day out, but there’s always that one (or ten) candy varieties that we just go crazy for. For Easter, 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 other-worldly about the magnificence of the Easter peanut butter egg.
Yet, we’re not just content eating Easter peanut butter eggs – we want to experience them in as many ways as possible, and whipped up some creative dessert ideas using peanut butter eggs!Easter Peanut Butter Eggs A La Mode
Ice cream tends to make just about anything taste even better – even a peanut butter egg. We don’t want the ice cream to overpower the peanut butter egg, so it’s best to choose a butter pecan or vanilla flavor. Spoon a few scoops of ice cream into a bowl, and press the center of the ice cream in a bit. Place the peanut butter egg right in the center, spray some whipped cream on top, and top it off with a maraschino cherry. Life is good.Caramel Pecan Glaze
We love the Gardners Peanut Butter Meltaway Eggs Tray
– it’s so convenient to take the twelve Easter peanut butter eggs right out of the tray and place them on a dish. Of course, for our families, we need to order a few of these! Once we have them plated, we pour a hot caramel glaze over the top of the peanut butter eggs, with pecans and various nuts in the glaze, creating a gourmet version of our favorite Easter candy.Easter Peanut Butter Eggs, Personalized
Choose a more lengthy peanut butter egg for this dessert idea, like Zitner’s Peanut Butter Eggs
. 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, and 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!
