Grandma’s Chocolate & Butter Cream Easter Eggs

As a child, my favorite Easter treat was a slice of one of my grandmother’s chocolate and butter cream Easter eggs.  Years after she passed away, I asked my parents for the recipe and I was so glad that they were able to find it!  It has become an annual favorite for my family as well.  Today I had fun sharing it with Naomi and Oliver for the first time.  I hope you’ll try it too!

Grandmas Chocolate & Butter Cream Easter Eggs

You’ll Need:

  • 1 lb. of Confectioner’s Sugar
  • 1/4 lb. of Softened Butter (1 Stick)
  • 2 Tbsp. of Milk
  • 1 tsp. of Vanilla
  • 8 oz. of Baker’s Unsweetened Chocolate
  • 8 oz. of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Directions:

  • In a large mixing bowl, alternate adding milk and sugar to softened butter.  Add Vanilla.  Mix until it can be molded into eggs.

  • Put the shaped eggs into the refrigerator to cool.

  • Melt all of the chocolates in a double boiler and spoon over the chilled eggs.

  • Spoon the chocolate over the top of the eggs and then chill again.

  • Spoon the chocolate over the bottom and chill again.

As you can see, Naomi enjoyed licking the chocolate-covered spoon.

We usually leave our eggs as is, but you can get more creative with colored sprinkles or icing decorations.  Enjoy!

  1. These look really good. I have made butter cream chocolates in a variety of flavors (mint, rasberry, and almond are all really good) in addition to the more traditional vanilla flavor. The recipe I use is basically the same and I usually make them at Christmas time. I dip them all the way into melted chocolate and put them on a cookie sheet to cool though. I think it is really cool that this was your grandma’s recipe, because I learned how to make them from my grandma as well. :)

    I haven’t made them in egg shapes before, maybe I’ll have to try that sometime.

    This year I made chocolate peanut butter eggs for a treat for my kids at Easter.

      The other flavors you mentioned sound delicious! That’s so cool that you got your recipe from your Grandma too! Maybe it was a popular recipe when they were young. :) I never thought to make them for other holidays, though they sound great for Christmas too!
