Easter Egg Reese's Peanut Butter Cookies

Is Easter one or your favorite times of the year when it comes to baking and making crafts?  It is mine.  Mostly because I just love little bunnies. In fact, when my daughter was little we owned a couple. They were lop ears, which means they had long floppy ears that would bounce when they hopped, and they were the cutest things you’ve ever seen! We had a little dog at the time and the bunny and dog used to play together.

I made these fun cookies using my Peanut Butter Shortbread recipe.  I cut them out in little Easter eggs then dipped them in Wilton colored candy.  Isn’t Wilton’s colored candy pretty or what?!!

If you don’t have a Joann’s Fabric Store near you, you don’t know what you are missing!  They are by far my favorite craft store. When I bought the candy they were on sale for 25% off, then I used my Joann’s coupon to save an additional 15% off, so I got them for like nothing!

This is what I used to dip them in.  I love using my little fondue set. It’s just the right size and I just throw it in the dishwasher when I’m done.

I used my Wilton Candy Melt Dipping Tools to dip the cookies in.  It’s easy and less messy!

When measuring your peanut butter, put saran wrap in your measuring cup first, for less of a mess!
