Chocolate-covered peanut butter fudge eggs are filled with the creamiest fudge you'll ever try! The fudge filling is easy to make using just four ingredients.
Fill the egg cavities of a polycarbonate mold with melted and tempered pure chocolate or melted compound chocolate (candy melts, melting wafers, or almond bark).
Tap the mold a few times to remove air bubbles.
Invert the mold over the bowl of chocolate and allow the excess to drip out.
Scrape any excess chocolate off the flat surface of the mold.
Alternatively, you can paint chocolate into the bottom and up the sides of a plastic or silicone egg mold.
Chill in the refrigerator if using pure chocolate and in the freezer, if using compound chocolate until hardened, about 5 minutes in the freezer and between 10-15 minutes in the fridge.
Combine the white chips and peanut butter chips in a microwave safe bowl.
Heat on high power for 30-second bursts, stirring after each, until melted.
Alternatively, you can melt the chips in a bowl set over a double boiler (a pan filled with one inch of water), stirring often over low heat, until melted.
Stir in the peanut butter and salt until smooth.
Set aside until it's cool to the touch but still liquid.
Pour into a disposable pastry bag or squeeze bottle.
Pipe the peanut butter fudge into the chocolate eggshells leaving about 1/16 inch at the top edge.
Set aside for about an hour until the fudge firms up.
Spread chocolate over the top of the fudge-filled eggs, then scrape off the excess.
Chill until hardened.
Unmold and wrap the peanut butter eggs in colorful foil wrappers.
NOTE about chocolate quantity:
Each egg will use approximately 3/4 ounces of chocolate so you'll need about 16 ounces of chocolate to make 20 eggshells. However, if you fill the molds completely with chocolate then dump out the excess, you will need to use more chocolate to make 20 eggs. I suggest melting and tempering about 22-24 ounces of chocolate to have enough to make 20 eggs.
Store your eggs at room temperature for up to 2 months.
