 While it is just a tad early, I wanted to put this topic you for those of you that would like to make some of your own Easter candies. While it would be improper for my to list the acual recipes here, they are on the Farm Bell Recipe site. One is listed as  CHOCOLATE COVERED EASTER EGGS and the other as BUCKEYE CANDY.

 Both are tried and true recipes, the Buckeye candy recipes calls for the peanut butter mixture to be rolled into balls before dipping, you can shape them into egg shapes, pour a bit of melted chocolate onto wax paper and then set the egg on top of that and cover with melted chocolate, or if they are small eggs, dip them as called for in the recipe. The recipe calls for smooth peanut butter, I use extra crunchy because that is what we like, it’s your egg, do it the way you like! Think Reeses eggs.

  Good quility chocolates are quite expensive, these are made with love in your own kitchen. Make extra for “taste testing”. 

                                     Thank you,

I just wanted to add, when using nuts when making the Chocolate Covered Eggs, I toast them a bit and cool them before adding  to the candy, the flavor and texture of the nuts is greatly improved.

   Two of my neighbors came over this morning and we started making the filling for Easter eggs, we have made the filling and put it in the fridge, they will come back this evening to dip them in chocolate. We have peanut butter, cherry, and butter pecan chilling. Later this coming week we are doing thin mint cookies, of course we will make extra so there will be some left for baskets.wink

 Our candies and cookies turned out so nice. We made an extra fruit and nut egg just  so we could do a “taste test” we cut it into slices and all the gals agreed it was the best Easter candy ever. It was rich and creamy and just yummy. The eggs were simple to make and it was nice to spend that time with my “peeps”—just a nice group of gals, I am lucky to have them as friends.
