Easter For Two

For us, it was a quiet Easter.  We didn’t cook the traditional ham and sides; we dined (here at home) on pork tenderloin, roasted potatoes and green bean amandine/almondine.

Since it is just the two of us, I had in mind to make a small batch of homemade peanut butter eggs.  Knowing that I would have some chocolate leftover, and since I had a can of sweetened condensed milk sitting in the cupboard, I made dulce de leche (caramel) from the can of milk.

The milk caramelizes in the can by simmering the unopened can (label removed) in a pot of water.

You can find the complete instructions at Serious Eats.

After I made the peanut butter eggs,  I made chocolate covered, salted caramel wafers using the homemade caramel and leftover chocolate.

I just dropped chocolate onto a piece of waxed paper (smoothing the chocolate down with the back of a spoon), chilled and then spread caramel on top of those and dropped and spread melted chocolate onto the caramel (sealing in the caramel) and added a pinch of kosher salt to the tops.

Easter for two!
