We always got these huge Chocolate Covered Fruit & Nut eggs at our place during the Easter meal. I never cared for these eggs, and after many years finally fessed up to MeeMaw as much and we stopped getting them. No need for her to waste her money, right? Boy, was I wrong--who knew that my brother, BestBuys, loved them! Every now and again he reminds me of how I did him out of his eggs.
So, this Easter I took to the internet and found a recipe to recreate his beloved Fruit & Nut egg. Once I got started, it was hard to stop, so I also created a Peanut Butter version (for my SIL Kiki), and Chocolate Cherry Nut Cream, Buttercream, and Chocolate Fudge for my other family and friends. I am a little worried about how BestBuys' favorite turned out and I may search for another recipe to try for next year...but hopefully it is an olive branch in the right direction!
