    The Big Cheese's Note:

    A delicious and easy-to-make treat for Easter or any time of year. I was surprised at how quickly these came together. Use tinted coconut for “nests” for your eggs if desired. Do not use a lowfat or generic brand of peanut butter for this recipe. I recommend Jif’s Extra Crunchy. I also recommend you use a very good quality chocolate chip.
