To prepare the Peanut mixture:
1. Using a food processor, mix the roasted peanuts and powdered sugar, until you get a fine texture.
2. In a large bowl, place the prepared peanut mixture and add the dried fruits (or candied fruits). Mix well.
3. Add the orange blossom water little by little to the peanut mixture, mix with your hand until you get a smooth paste.
4. Let the peanut paste rest on the counter for 15 minutes.
5. Line baking sheet with foil and set aside.
6. Shape the peanut mixture into egg shapes with a flat base so they can stand. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
7. Melt the chocolate in a bain marie, where the bowl containing the chocolate is placed over a saucepan with boiling water.
8. Dip the some of the peanut eggs in dark chocolate and some in white chocolate.
9.Place the chocolate dipped peanut eggs in the fridge for about 15 - 20 minutes, until the chocolate hardens.
10. Once the chocolate hardens, using a knife trim the chocolate edges at the base.
11. Paint the white chocolate eggs with food colorant, as desired.
12. Serve cold.
If you cannot find peanuts already roasted, bake raw peanuts in the oven at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes. Stir the peanuts once or twice during cooking time.
