    I add a cup of crushed graham crackers to the peanut butter mixture. Yummy!

      Gretchen – I like that idea! It would give the center just a wee bit of crunch, but not so much as crunchy peanut butter. I may have to try that. 🙂

    I love peanut butter eggs! We used to make this recipe all the time…and then we discovered that my 4th child has a nut allergy. No more peanut butter.

    So, I have to get my peanut butter chocolate fix by purchasing a candy bar at the store and eating it before I get home.

    When there’s a will, there’s a way.
