Peanut butter is very social.  It gets along great with apples and bananas, crackers and toast, honey and cinnamon.  Peanut butter and chocolate have a love affair.  I wonder how that makes Jelly feel.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs

on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper . . .
take a heaping tablespoon  of the peanut butter mixture
using your hands shape the scoop into an egg shape
place each egg on the parchment paper
