Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Beat cream cheese, margarine, and vanilla with an electric mixer in a mixing bowl until well combined. Add confectioners' sugar in batches and beat until ingredients are evenly distributed; dough will be very stiff.

  • Divide the batter in half and place each half of the batter in a separate bowl. Stir peanut butter into one of the bowls and coconut flakes into the second.

  • Using your hands, mold the dough into egg-shapes and arrange the forms on cookie sheets. Place the eggs in the freezer until frozen, 1 to 2 hour.

  • Once the eggs have frozen, melt the chocolate and shortening in the top of a double-boiler. Dip the eggs into the chocolate until coated. Place the eggs on waxed paper-lined cookie sheets and return to the freezer to harden. After the chocolate has hardened, the eggs can be kept in the refrigerator.

Editor's Note:

We reduced the amount of coconut flakes from 16 ounces to 12 ounces, and clarified the instructions in Step 1 after featuring this recipe in a video.
