Ingredients

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Special equipment: a plastic or silicone 8-cup egg mold (2 1/2-inch round cups); decorative ribbon

Put the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water (the bottom of the bowl should not touch the water). Heat the chocolate, stirring occasionally, until completely melted. Alternatively, use a double boiler. Keep the chocolate warm over low heat until ready to use.

Pour 1 tablespoon of the melted chocolate into each cup of a plastic or silicone 8-cup egg mold (2 1/2-inch round cups) and swirl to coat. Freeze until the chocolate is set and hard, about 10 minutes. Keep the chocolate warm over low heat. 

Meanwhile, put the peanut butter, confectioners' sugar, butter, crackers and salt in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until well combined. 

Add 1 tablespoon of the peanut butter mixture to each egg cup, patting down to smooth the tops. Pop 4 of the egg cups out of the mold. Coat the top of each of the remaining egg cups in the mold with 1 tablespoon chocolate. Press the removed egg cups onto the freshly coated ones to make 4 whole eggs. Freeze until set, about 10 minutes. 

Wrap the seam of each egg with a pretty ribbon bow.
