I am definitely no food snob, witness this post. Believe it or not, Larry and I saw Chocolate Covered Peeps at a high-end cheese shop on LA‘s 3rd Street. Packaged, and expensive. So, of course, now that I know how to dip and cover things in chocolate, I couldn’t pass up the idea.
Tell me this… do you think you will make these in the near future? After Easter Sunday, peeps will be on sale!
Chocolate Dipped Peeps
- 2 packages (10 peeps per package) marshmallow peeps
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
- 1/4 cup sprinkles or jimmies
In the top of a double boiler, melt the chocolate and stir until smooth. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Carefully pull apart the peeps into individual chickies. Using your hand, place a peep in the chocolate and then rotate just slightly to move the chocolate up the side. Work quickly to not melt the marshmallow. Scrape the chocolate off the bottom slightly and place on waxed paper. Repeat to finish them all. Then, starting from the coolest one, pick it up and sprinkle the confections, place back on waxed paper. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Makes 20 peeps
