Sugar Free Peanut Butter Easter Eggs
Easter comes but once a year and each time I try to bring you a recipe for the holiday. Last year I made Coconut Butter Bunnies, both in vanilla and chocolate flavor and my kids loved them.
This year I bring these fantastic peanut butter eggs simply because I love peanut butter and so does my hubby and daughter.
Can't have Easter without Easter eggs and the chocolate variety are always a big hit with family.

Best Tips for Sugar Free Peanut Butter Eggs
If you can't find sugar free chocolate chips that are sweetened with stevia, you can use unsweetened baking chocolate and add 1-2 teaspoons liquid stevia, but taste and adjust as needed.
I've found sugar free chocolate chips at Whole Foods by the brand Lily's, but you could also use 85% dark chocolate.
I've not tried this with powdered peanut butter as I do not think the texture will work as nicely and be quite dry if using that, although the calories and fat would be greatly reduced.
If you don't want to use the microwave, you can simply melt the coconut oil and peanut butter over low heat in a saucepan on the stove and stir until smooth.
After an hour on the counter, they did not melt, but I think it is better to keep them refrigerated.
