With the finale of The Book of Boba Fett hitting Disney+ tomorrow, I knew I had to share a Star Wars themed treat to enjoy!
I’ve loved that the majority of the series has taken place on Tatooine — it’s one of my favorite Star Wars planets. And since I’ve already made Bantha cookies and a Tatooine sunset cake, I decided to set my sights on making a Jawa-inspired dessert.
I love peanut butter cups any time of the year, but let’s be honest, the holiday-shaped peanut butter cups are always the best. With Easter right around the corner, I thought a Star Wars twist on classic peanut butter eggs might be just what the Daimyo ordered…
And that’s how I landed on Jawa peanut butter eggs! Easily made with ingredients you have in your kitchen, delicious, and cute! Anyone who tries them will be saying Utinni!
Check out all of my Star Wars recipes and plan a fully themed watch party!
Jawa Peanut Butter Eggs
- 1.5 c. powdered sugar
- 3/4 c. creamy peanut butter
- 2 tbsp. melted butter
- 1 tbsp. milk
- 1 package of milk chocolate melting wafers (I love these from Ghiradelli — affiliate link)
- Yellow mini M&Ms
- Black food coloring
- Wax paper
- Baking sheet
- Egg-shaped cookie cutter
Combine the powdered sugar, peanut butter, and melted butter in a medium-sized bowl and beat together with a mixer. Add the milk and beat until mixture is combined. (If the mixture appears too crumbly, add a little extra milk.)
Roll out the peanut butter mixture to 1/4 inch thickness on a floured surface. Cut out egg shapes using a cookie cutter or freehand the shape with a knife. Place the peanut butter eggs on a baking sheet. Chill in the freezer for 45 minutes.
Once the peanut butter eggs are chilled, melt half of the milk chocolate wafers in the microwave according to the package instructions. Cover each peanut butter egg in chocolate, then place on a piece of wax paper to harden.
Melt the remaining half of the milk chocolate wafers in the microwave according to the package instructions, then add a few drops of black food coloring to darken the chocolate. Using a spoon add a circle of darker chocolate for the Jawa’s head at the top of each egg, using the back of the spoon to smooth out the chocolate. Add two yellow mini M&Ms for eyes on the wet chocolate before it hardens and dries.
Next use a spoon to add a diagonal bandolier with the darker chocolate across the middle of the egg.
Let the Jawa eggs dry and harden, then enjoy.
