Making Peanut Butter Easter Eggs and A Beautiful Clay Rose 18


Hey Everyone!

Happy Easter Weekend!  I LOVE Celebrating Easter and WHAT we Celebrate this time of year!  We love having fun with Dying Eggs, Making Candy Treats and all kinds of fun baskets of goodies.

However, its so important to us to celebrate the Death, Burial and Resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  🙂

Today I have a more SILLY than probably HELPFUL video of Making Candy Easter Eggs of both Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs and Butter Cream Eggs.

Here’s the Recipe and Photos (Video is full of kids, loudness and fun!)

Peanut Butter Easter Eggs:

1 Stick of Butter (1/4 lb)

1 Package of Cream Cheese (8oz)

1 Teaspoon of Salt

2 Tablespoons of Vanilla

1 1/2 cups of Natural Peanut Butter

2lbs of Confectioners Sugar

12 oz of Favorite Chocolate (melt it slowly!)

Blend together softened Butter, Cream Cheese, Vanilla and Salt.  Add Peanut Butter then slowly add confectioners sugar.  Place entire mixture into refrigerator for about 20-30 minutes then form into 2″ sized ovals.  Place on wax paper and chill for another hour.  SLOWLY melt chocolate in Microwave or Stove Top (however melting works best for you!) and then dip each egg into chocolate.  Place back on wax paper covered cookie sheet to Dry! ENJOY!!! 🙂

Butter Cream Eggs:

1 Stick of Butter (1/4 lb)

1 Package of Cream Cheese (8oz)

1 Teaspoon of Salt

2 Tablespoons of Vanilla

2lbs of Confectioners Sugar

Few drops of Food Coloring or Colored Sugar for extra Fun Colors!

12 oz of Favorite Chocolate (melt it slowly!)

Blend together softened Butter, Cream Cheese, Vanilla and Salt.  Slowly add confectioners sugar.  Place entire mixture into refrigerator for about 20-30 minutes then form into 2″ sized ovals.  Place on wax paper and chill for another hour.  SLOWLY melt chocolate in Microwave or Stove Top (however melting works best for you!) and then dip each egg into chocolate.  Place back on wax paper covered cookie sheet to Dry! ENJOY JUST THE SAME!!!! 🙂

Now – Because of Easter I’m sharing these photos and a Song 🙂

One of My FAVORITE Easter Songs is “He Arose” and “Above All” they are just my two favorites so I’m going to show you pics from how I made a Rose using the new Martha Stewart Crafter’s Clay.  This Heirloom Kit is Incredible with great molds the tools and color chart you’ll need to create ANYTHING you want!  This is an air dry clay that dries solid in 24 hours and is SUPER light weight like Paper Light!  Its AWESOME! I’ll be doing a video on it soon, but check this out!

 Here’s the Heirloom Kit, for those wondering Where do I Get it? Craft-e-Corner.com has it in stock right now.

Just a little SMIDGEN of red mixed with mostly white makes this GREAT Pink Color!

I used the Mold for these three: First one I just smooched the Clay in.  The Second I placed a Sparkle Light in the mold first then smooched in the Clay.  The Third and pictured – I did the mold first and I placed a sparkle light in the center. I think it adds PERFECTLY wonderful bling to the paper clay! I LOVE it!

Now I used the directions included in the kit to make THIS rose!  It was SO easy took me less than 25 min to figure out, play with and make for FIRST time ever! And I am NOT a clay person at ALLLL! It’s THAT easy!  No baking required, just air dries for up to 24 hours – and its SUPER light weight.  Best tip: Must keep it moist/wet while working with it.  Have a wet paper towel at your work station to roll the clay in and keep clay you aren’t working in covered with it.  AWESOME!

I’m leaving you with this Video: Above All by Michael W. Smith: Happy Easter Everyone!  He HAS Risen! 🙂

    Loved seeing the candy egg making, but I am going to pass on making them this year. Need to lose the pounds from winter! I will have an hard boiled egg. Have a blessed Easter Megan and family. Thanks for the Michael W Smith video too which I will watch later as I am at work now and I just know I will need tissues…

Thank you for sharing ths video on another great song to focus on our Lord’s resurrection. Easter takes us from the ugliest of ugly to the bestest of the best. Happy Easter to all!

    Thanks for thecream egg recipe & cute video. Reminds me of growing up with my mom making the PB eggs and selling them at school for 35cents each. Every Easter she sends them to me even still. It looks like her recipe has a lot of your same components. Hope you had a lovely Easter too.

    I’m just now getting around to reading all my emails. I live in Texas but I grew up in Iowa (close to Council Bluffs). Meagan, I just want to tell you how special you are. You must be super mom! Your walk with God brings tears to my eyes. I praise God for your talents and that you are spreading his message. I am 61 and I had to medically retire from my 20+years in the human resource field in 2010. Thank God that he has given me special talents as well or I would not be sane right now. I have chronic back pain, fibromyalgia, and Sjogren’s Syndrome (an autoimmune problem). I had always been a 90-mile an hour gal so when I was diagnosed back in 1998 it was so devastating that I had to learn to be another person. I have problems with depression because I’m not the person I used to be. God loves me so much that he watched over me when I was going through a very traumatic time a year ago and it resulted in my forced retirement. This is a long paragraph to tell you that I love reading your website and seeing your videos. God has risen and he is our Savior! Again, thank you for your ministry.
