Easter Peanut Butter Buttons

Would you like a no-bake, kid-friendly, and super simple treat to snack on?  Here they are.


Aren’t these adorable?  I had seen these originally last year on Natalie’s blog, and I instantly fell in love with them.  How simple!  How cute!  How versatile!  With Easter coming up, I thought these would be a great treat to post. The pastel eggs on white chocolate with pastel sprinkles? How festive!

Anyways, take 10 minutes out of your day to make these.  Warning: they are extremely addicting.  I originally wanted to use Peanut M&M’s (my favorite), but my grocery store was completely out of pastel Peanut M&M’s (can you imagine?).  After I stalked the Easter candy aisle for a good ten minutes or so, I settled on Reeses Pieces peanut butter eggs. Who doesn’t love a peanut butter/chocolate/salty combo?  I tried a couple with Almond M&M’s as well, but, I have to tell you: the peanut butter won for me, hands-down.  Feel free to play around with the type of candy, chocolate or other type of garnish.

And, don’t say I didn’t warn you.  :)

Easter Peanut Butter Buttons

Servings: 50 pieces



50 mini-pretzels **I used Hanover’s Butter Snap…oh.my.gosh.

1 cup white candy melts, melted**Use your microwave and stir every 10 seconds or so after heating to make sure they melt completely

50 Reeses Pieces pastel eggs

Pastel sprinkles, for garnish

Instructions***For better results, make each piece one at a time.  Reheat the candy melts as necessary to prevent it from hardening.

1.  On wax paper, place about 1/2 teaspoon of the melted candy melts on one pretzel.

2.  Decorate the candy melt with pastel sprinkles.

3. Immediately top with a pastel chocolate peanut butter egg.  Let cool.

Caprese Eggs Benedict

A few weekends ago I made a goal for myself.  I was going to make hollandaise sauce, from scratch.  No curdling, no scrambled eggs, no separation.  No sir, pure and creamy hollandaise sauce.

But, once I accomplished that, what was I going to make with it?  There was one answer for someone who has finally learned how to poach an egg.  The proper way.  Eggs Benedict, of course!

And since I don’t eat Canadian bacon (or meat, for that matter-just seafood rarely), I wanted to improvise a little.  I usually, at least two or three times a week, eat a warm caprese salad.  This is where my wallet-sucking bad (or good) habit of spending time at Whole Foods comes in.  I buy some fresh tomatoes, a nice ball of mozzarella, and some fresh basil at least once a week.  I slice the tomatoes, put some mozzarella on them, and then I broil them until the cheese melts.  I top it off with fresh basil and a little sea salt, and I am happy.

So, back to the Eggs Benedict.  I figured mixing my favorite Italian salad with eggs (one of my other favorite things to cook with) might be interesting.  I know this has been done before, but it was a first for me.  It certainly will not be my last.

And, P.S.  The hollandaise sauce was extremely easy.  My arm got a little tired during the continuous whisking part, but, hey, that comes with the territory.  I will warn you, though, if you want to reheat the hollandaise, it’s very tricky.  You need to put it in a heatproof bowl over simmering water and whisk continuously again or else it WILL separate out (eww…and that is really gross).

Enjoy this.  It’s a keeper.


Caprese Eggs Benedict

Servings: 2


For the hollandaise sauce:

12 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature

6 large egg yolks

1/2 cup boiling water

2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Pinch cayenne pepper

Pinch white pepper

1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

For the Eggs Benedict:

2 English muffins, toasted***Someday I will get around to making my own, I promise

2 eggs, poached**For tips on how to poach an egg, see THIS post

1 large tomato (or two medium ones), slice to your desired thickness

4 ounces (about half one 8-ounce mozzarella ball), sliced to your desired thickness**I used 2 slices on each one.

1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, lightly packed

Salt and pepper, to taste

Chives, for garnish, optional

Special equipment: Instant-read thermometer


1. For the hollandaise sauce: In a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of barely simmering water set on medium heat, whisk the butter and egg yolks together until smooth.

2. Very…very slowly, add the 1/2 cup boiling water to the mixture, whisking constantly.  (You do not want the eggs to cook).

3. Whisking constantly, heat the mixture until it is thickened and reads 160 degrees on your instant-read thermometer.  (It took mine about 10 minutes or so).

4. Remove the saucepan from the heat.

5. Gently whisk in the lemon juice, cayenne pepper, white pepper, garlic salt, and sea salt.  Serve warm.

6.  To assemble the Eggs Benedict: Place the fresh basil on top of the toasted English muffin.  Top with tomatoes, mozzarella, and poached egg.  Lightly drizzle the hollandaise sauce over top.  Garnish with fresh chives, if using.

Kate from Scratch - Oh my my! How beautiful is that?!! Pretty darn gorgeous. I love your wallet sucking habit. It sounds like we have a lot in common: Tomato, mozzarella, basil, sea salt….no meat, etc. ‘ve never tried to poach an egg, honestly. I’m not a fan of runny yolks, so I never had the desire to try. But, I guess all great cooks should learn eventually. The whole think looks absolutely amazing. Great photos, great dish. Doesn’t really get better than that. Can’t wait to see more!

Chocolate Chip Sour Cream Muffins

Who wants some chocolate chip sour cream muffins?  (Believe me, you want these.)

I was in a fridge-cleaning mood.  (Actually I overbought too many things at the grocery store and needed to make some room-am I the only one who does this?)  In the back of my fridge, nearly ready to expire, was a container of sour cream.

Hmmm.  Sour cream.  About a cup left.  What can I make with that?

A half-full bag of chocolate chips sat, alone and quiet, on the counter top (due to a recent kitchen fail consisting of attempted chocolate-filled M&M cookies…sigh).  A quick internet search led me to these Chocolate Chip Sour Cream Muffins, courtesy of Taste of Home.  I knew that I could do very well with this recipe: get rid of the sour cream and chocolate chips…and get to eat warm, sweet, buttery muffins for dinner.  Score.

These muffins are wonderful.  They are super moist, light, and chock-full of chocolate.  The sour cream makes them very cake-like (even better in my opinion).  I ate one warm, right from the oven.

Heaven. Heaven with sour cream and chocolate chips.

Chocolate Chip Sour Cream Muffins

Servings: 12 muffins


1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2/3 cup granulated sugar

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 large egg

1 cup sour cream

5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


1.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2.  Line one cupcake pan with liners, set aside.

3. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

4.  In another large bowl, combine the egg, sour cream, melted butter, and vanilla extract, mixing well.

5.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir with a rubber spatula until just combined.

6. Gently add in the chocolate chips until thoroughly combined.

7. Evenly divide the batter among the prepared cupcake liners (I use a large ice cream scoop for this) so that the liners are about 3/4-full.

8.  Bake until a tester inserted into the center of the muffins comes out clean, about 14-18 minutes.

January 17, 2012 - 5:22 pm

srlacy - Hi Debbie-

The best way to make sure that they are done is to insert a toothpick into the centers of the muffins during the baking process, and if it comes out clean (without batter attached to it), then they are done. I usually bake mini-anythings about 8-9 minutes and then check every minute or so thereafter. I hope that they turn out for you!

Amanda L. - These have become the most requested muffin in our home. I usually switch the sour cream for greek yogurt and use white whole wheat flour. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

Jackie - Definitely gonna try! Do you think I could substitute sour cream with yogurt? Any idea how many calories are in each one?

srlacy - Hi Jackie-

Several readers have commented that they have made these with yogurt, and they still turned out. I’m not sure on calorie count, though. You might be able to calculate it on your own with the ingredients listed.

Kim - Thank you for posting this recipe! I was looking for recipes that used sour cream and this was perfect. They turned out very moist, just how I like them. Thanks again!

Amanda - These have become one of our favorite weekly treats to make in our house. I have replaced the sour cream with plain, lowfat yougurt and we actually prefer it that way now. And because of the chocolate chips we are able to cut back on the sugar quite a bit as well. I usually replace 1/2 c of the white flour with whole wheat flour too. Thanks for a great recipe! By far, one of the most requested things that I am asked to make for my kids and husband.

srlacy - Ooooh I love those modifications! I am definitely going to try them next time like that…thanks!

Julie - LOVED the muffins! Added 1/2 c coconut to the batter, along with the chocolate chips, AND happened to have coconut flavoring instead of vanilla so I switched it out. YUMMY, with a capital YUM!

Amanda - We LOVE these muffins at our house. We make them probably way too often =). I have tweaked them a little just to up the health factor – I use greek yogurt instead of sour cream and a little less sugar. I also sub some WW flour for some of the white. Anyway, I love the texture of these muffins and have been wanting to try them with blueberries instead of chocolate chips for quite a while (but seriously, so hard NOT to make them with chocolate chips.) We made them with blueberries this morning and sprinkled a little cinnamon on the top and they were SO yummy! Thanks for a great recipe that can still be so great even when adapted!

srlacy - Hi Amanda-

Thank you for all of those great suggestions…maybe it’s time for a recipe re-do for me to post on the blog-everyone seems to love these muffins! I’m so glad you like them!

Robyn - Made these for the guys at work 2 weeks ago…doubled the recipe & omitted the salt, as I had no unsalted butter *shame* – 2 dozen muffins didn’t make it until noon between 5 guys :) Making them again tonight, per request. Thanks for such an easy, perfect recipe!
