Easter is a fun time of the year. Spring is in the air, the tulips are merging their little heads from the soil and we know that summer is just around the corner. One of my family’s favorite treats comes right around Easter. It is the Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg. Well, I have found my own version of the Reese’s egg and my family thinks it is actually even better. Try this recipe for your family this holiday and for every other holiday too.
