Serves: 14
 
Ingredients
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted (I used salted)
  • 3 Tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1 package white chocolate, I used white almond bark (wilton candy melts or candiquik may also be used)
  • yellow food coloring
Instructions
  1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat & set aside.
  2. Add powdered sugar to mixing bowl.
  3. Melt butter in microwave. Add vanilla to melted butter & stir it in. Then add the vanilla/butter mix to the powdered sugar.
  4. Add the heavy whipping cream & mix it in. (If mixture is too dry & crumbly add a little more whipping cream).
  5. Take tablespoon sized scoops of buttercream & shape into eggs. Place onto prepared cookie sheet. When done place cookie sheet in refrigerator for 20-30 min. to cool.
  6. After 20-30 min. take eggs out, melt your white chocolate in the microwave as directed on package. (You probably won't need the whole package. I used 8 squares of almond bark when I made mine).
  7. Add one drop of yellow food coloring & mix it in.
  8. Dip each egg into bowl of white chocolate with a fork then place back on cookie sheet.
  9. Allow white chocolate to set then enjoy! Placing it in the refrigerator helps it to set faster.
