Buttercream Easter Eggs

Yield 8 eggs or 1 1/4 pounds

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (12-ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • Royal Frosting

How to Make It

  1. Cream butter in a large mixing bowl; gradually add sugar, beating well. Stir in whipping cream and vanilla. Chill mixture overnight. Shape into 3-inch eggs. Chill until firm.

  2. Place chocolate in top of a double boiler; cook over simmering water, stirring until chocolate melts. Remove from heat, leaving chocolate over hot water. Using 2 forks, quickly dip eggs, one at a time, into chocolate mixture. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets; refrigerate until firm. Decorate with Royal Frosting, as desired. Store in airtight containers in refrigerator.

  3. Note: Shape mixture into 1-inch eggs to make 2 dozen.
