Put These Healthier Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs In Your Easter Basket

Fans of peanut butter cups cherish springtime for one reason: Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs.

With a spot-on ratio of peanut butter filling chocolate coating, the sweet, the creamy eggs are nothing short of iconic. Thing is, your average chocolate-PB egg goodness comes at the cost of 16 grams of sugar, preservatives, and artificial flavoring.

Don’t get us wrong; there’s a time and place for the OG treat. But if using clean ingredients and keeping sugar lower are top priorities, these Better-For-You Collagen Reese’s Eggs certainly get the job done.

Created by healthy recipe guru Kim Capella and made with clean ingredients and sweeteners like honey and stevia, they’re a springtime treat you can truly feel good about. Plus, with a little help from The Vitamin Shoppe brand Collagen Peptides, they pack extra protein and nutrition.

Chocolate Coating

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, combine the peanut butter and honey and mix well. Add collagen and peanut powder and mix again until well combined.
  2. Use your hands to mold the peanut butter filling into 12 even, egg-shaped discs. Place on a large plate or serving tray and refrigerate for 30 to 60 minutes to firm up.
  3. Once firm, make the chocolate coating by whisking the coconut oil, stevia, and cocoa powder in a bowl.
  4. Dip each peanut butter egg into the chocolate to coat. Then, place back onto the plate or tray. (For thicker coating, dip eggs again after first chocolate layer has solidified.)
  5. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour (or freezer for 30 minutes) to solidify. Enjoy!
