Copycat Reese Egg

If there is one thing that doesn’t last long in this house, it’s Reese Cups. With Easter right around the corner, I decided to attempt to find a copycat recipe that might do our favorite candy justice. It was so much easier than I expected.


  • 1 cup Peanut Butter
  • 1/4 cup Butter
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 Confectioners Sugar
  • 8 oz Chocolate Melting Chips

** I recommend Reese Peanut Butter and Hershey Melting Chocolates.**


  1. IMG_1370Melt the peanut butter and butter together. (About one minute in the microwave.)
  2. Stir together until smooth.
  3. Add vanilla extract. Stir in confectioners sugar 1/4 cup at a time.
  4. Shape into eggs and place onto wax paper. Put into freezer for 15 minutes to set.
  5. IMG_1371Melt chocolate. Place peanut butter eggs into chocolate and coat both sides. Place back onto wax paper. Put back into freezer for 20 minutes.
  6. Enjoy cold or room temperature. Store in refrigerator.

My husband was very impressed with how they turned out. I had so much fun making them too! They aren’t going to last very long, but now that I know how to make them, I am not worried about it! Have fun making your very own, delicious Reese Eggs. I can’t wait to try and shape them for every holiday!
