    Youth Group Treats

    What a great idea! Can't wait to make these for our Youth Group tomorrow. I think my husband may want his own stash, so I will double the recipe!

    These we quite easy to make. My husband thought these were the best. Big hit at Easter. Next time I think I will just put melted chocolate over the top of them instead of the chocolate egg.

    These were Terrific! They were so quick and easy to prepare as well as delicious. On the day we first made these, they were gone in a flash. Then we made a double batch the same day. We got the idea to make these for Valentine's Day, using our heart shaped candy mold for the shells and placing a chocolate heart candy on top.

    Only a few days left on until Easter,and these sound like what I was looking for. I made my eggs this evening, peanut butter of course, I always dip them in melted chocolate bits.

    The recipe was good as printed but I also made it with Nestle Crunch Nest Eggs for the shells and used Nutella for the filling - very good!
