Homemade Easter Eggs

Easter is a time for making memories that are special for your family.  Each year as the boys get older we add new and different elements to our Easter celebrations.  This year we made these fantastically delicious Homemade Easter Eggs. homemade easter eggs

We used this recipe from Life Made Delicious and modified it slightly to make it more our own. With a few simple ingredients you will create eggs that are filled with chocolate and peanut butter goodness.
