Dip these in coating of choice for cups, small bites, eggs…. Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, or peanut butter are great choices. You could also add a little dollop of jam on top of the peanut butter for a little extra YUM!!
Melt chocolate with coconut oil or instead of chocolate coating, mix peanut butter, coconut oil and sweetener to make a peanut butter candy coating.
