Truly Awesome: Peanut Butter Eggs

Easter is in about a week and a half.  There is a miracle that occurs every year around Easter time.  This is not to be confused with the miracle that we are celebrating at Easter time.  This is more along the lines of one of those things I really like that I call a miracle, to make it more dramatic.  I'm glad we cleared that up.

But let me be clear, this is the best miracle that will happen this year.  (It's important to read the "let me be clear" part of that sentence in your best Obama voice, since that's his favorite phrase.  Go ahead and do it now.  I'll wait.)  (Although, if Google glasses come out this year, I may change my mind and decide they are the year's best miracle.)  (Yes, that was two parentheticals and this is the third.  Deal with it.)

The miracle I'm referring to is the miracle of the Peanut Butter Egg.

Look at that precious little miracle

To understand this miracle, you first need to understand that Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are among the world's most delicious treats.  (Almost up there with bacon.)

After understanding that first eternal truth, next you need to understand the miracle of the peanut butter ratio. I have no empirical data to back this up, but I'm convinced that the shape of the peanut butter egg allows a higher peanut butter to chocolate ratio.  In fact, I'm convinced the egg has more peanut butter than any other Reese's product and they've perfected the optimal ratio, making it even more delicious than its cup shaped cousin.

Look at all that Peanut Butter.  That's the magic of the egg.
Unfortunately, this year I'm trying to lose weight.  (The above picture is from a previous year's indulgence in the deliciousness.)  I've decided I'm only allowed to have a few of them on Easter Sunday.  But that will make the small indulgence even more enjoyable.  I will cherish every second.

I recommend that if you have one Easter treat, make it a peanut butter egg.  They are, in fact, truly awesome.  I mean look at the happiness they bring.


  1. They are my favorite miracle, and I agree the peanut butter/chocolate ratio is much better on them. I even tried the Reese's big cup, but it isn't quite right.

    We stock up on these at our house. In fact, a few days ago Todd was stopping at the store on his way home from somewhere, and he asked, "Is there anything we need?"

    Reese's peanut butter eggs. The big ones. The small ones are still good, but the big ones have more peanut butter.

    In other words, I consider them a need - not a want - but a need.

    1. You bring up a good point. The small ones aren't as good as the big ones. And they are definitely a need. :)

  2. So apparently there is a new peanut butter egg. I have not had one but everyone i've heard speak of it says the ratio is better and makes one more happy. I saw one today (although it was not in the happy yellow rapper and it may be different brand) and from the above mentioned I'd have to say it's a medium egg, smaller then the large and larger then the small.

    I will try to get my hands on one and verify if there is any truth to these claims.

  3. We will have to make them a special treat next week. My treat would be jelly beans! Particularly Jelly Bellies.

  4. Have you tried the egg recipe yet? You'll have to report on how it tastes.

    1. We didn't do it. One of the ingredients was super expensive so we didn't try it. We still may someday.
