Last week, my husband was with me at the store. As we passed the Easter candy, he spotted some of those marshmallow eggs that come in the egg carton. I don’t know if you’ve ever bought those before, but the idea of a marshmallow egg, combined with the $1 price tag make them quite alluring. I told him that I had had them before and didn’t like them, but we still ended up with 2 cartons on them in our cart. Later that day, at home, he opened one up and tried them out. Let’s just say that they are still sitting in our cabinet, barely eaten!! For $1, you really get what you pay for – cheap chocolate with a spongy, marshmallow filling.

Well, shortly after my husband bought those eggs, I ran across this post on Stephanie’s Kitchen where she made Marshmallow Truffles. Immediately, I thought that it would be fun to make them and shape them as eggs. I knew they would be better than those cheap eggs at the grocery store!! Stephanie did not let me down. These truffles are delicious. The center is super creamy, and I got to control the quality of the chocolate on the outside!!

Not only are they quite tasty, but they are super cute as well. These would be a great Easter gift to give away, or a great filler for Easter baskets. But do make sure you have someone to share these with, because they are quite addictive. Believe me – I’ve eaten more than my fair share of them!! I ended up begging my in-laws to take some with them when they stopped by the other day. All this Easter candy is not helping me to lose the baby weight!!

What Easter candy do you have a hard time passing up at the store?

Instructions

  1. In the bowl of a mixer, combine the marshmallow creme, butter, vanilla and salt. Mix until creamy. Gradually add the powdered sugar, mixing until smooth. Refrigerate for an hour.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or waxed paper. Use a small scoop to make small balls out of the marshmallow mixture. Form each ball into an egg shape. Freeze for about 15 minutes.

      @paula greenstein, I haven’t tried shipping them, so I’m not sure, but I’m guessing they will ship fine. The only thing I’d be worried about is the chocolate melting, but it shouldn’t be a problem this time of year.

    Your cute mother-in-law taught me how to make these in YW years ago! She actually used and egg for the shape in e flour, so they were bigger, but they were so yummy! In fact, I had my mom get the recipe from her a year or two ago, but still haven’t tried doing them myself.

  16. These look so great! Much better than store bought ones. I have a hard time passing up the Cadbury mini eggs.

  17. Bonnie says:

    I like those $1.00 chocolate covered marshmallow eggs, but, there are some that are dark chocolate (I think in a pink box and hard to find) and a lighter milk chocolate. The ones that are dark chocolate are good and once you eat those you sure will not want the lighter colored ones. I am sure that they sure do not compare to these beauties though.

  18. These are so cute, the perfect Easter treat!

  19. Seriously, these look amazing! I am definitely going to try and make these for Easter!! yum!

  20. Way too cute. I mean, don’t get me wrong. I could still eat the whole container. LOL.
