When I read a review that said these taste like the Whatchamacallit candy bar introduced in the late 70's, I had to make them. They truly do taste
like that candy bar. To make it easier, I just put the cereal mixture part in a 9 x 13 baking dish and cut them into squares instead of making an egg shape. These are really good!

Crunchy Chocolate Eggs
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter
2 cups cornflakes
2 cups crisp rice cereal
1/2 cup finely chopped peanuts
3-3/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1-1/2 teaspoons shortening
Candy sprinkles

In a heavy saucepan, combine brown sugar, corn syrup and peanut butter. Cook and stir over medium heat until smooth. Remove from the heat; stir in cereals and peanuts.

When cool enough to handle, drop by tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Form into egg shapes. Refrigerate until firm.

In a microwave, melt chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip eggs in chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Decorate with sprinkles. Let stand until set. Yield: about 4-1/2 dozen.

Editor's Note: Reduced-fat peanut butter is not recommended for this recipe.
