Easy Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs

1 cup creamy peanut butter
¼ cup butter-melted
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
Dash of salt
2 cups powdered sugar
about 10-12 oz. chocolate or chocolate chips 

Stir together peanut butter, melted butter, brown sugar, vanilla and a dash of salt, just to combine.
Gradually mix in powdered sugar.
Line a tray with parchment paper. Using your hands, shape into eggs and place them on the tray. If it is too soft to mold, you can place in refrigerator or freezer until firmed up a bit. 
Once molded, place them in the freezer for 45-60 minutes.
Melt the chocolate and line another tray with parchment paper.
Using a fork, dip each egg into melted chocolate to cover completely. Gently tap the fork to drip of the excess of chocolate. Place chocolate covered eggs on the parchment paper lined tray. Refrigerate until chocolate has set.
Store in the fridge or freeze for longer storage.

Makes about 16-18 eggs.
