  1. In a mixing bowl, combine sugar, margarine, cream cheese and vanilla extract. Divide the batter in half and place each half of the batter in a bowl on its own. Stir peanut butter into one of the bowls and coconut into the second.
  2. Using your hands, mold the dough into egg-shapes and arrange the forms on cookie sheets. Place the eggs in the freezer until frozen.
  3. 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 wax paper lined cookie sheets and return to the freezer to harden. After the chocolate has hardened the eggs can be kept in the refrigerator.

Loved this. It was split who preferred coconut and who preferred peanut butter-- but these were a hit (they tasted better than Reese's according to some of my guests). Two things: 1) You need ...

This is a very good candy recipe. The filling(s) is so smooth. They just melt in your mouth. I will not make this WHOLE recipe again. It is A LOT! of candy. I made the pieces about the size...

Instead of egg shapes, we simply rolled the dough into balls about 3/4" in diameter. The recipe then makes about 150 balls, requiring 50% more of the chocolate/shortening mix for dipping. But ...

I decided to give this recipe a "test run" before Easter and they turned out great. I tried both the coconut and the peanut butter. I didn't decorate them this time, just sprinkled the tops of t...
