Chocolate Dipped Peeps ~ It’s EASTER

Chocolate Dipped Peeps

Chocolate-Covered-PeepsI 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

Hey Patti. Dip them in dark chocolate and they can be heart healthy too!

Very cute! Did you see my crazy post on cupcakes and peeps for Easter? Peeps were never this much fun when I was younger!

Looks really cute. I also enjoy roasting peeps like a marshmallow and making s’mores.

I’m with Beryl; growing up my sister and I always opened our packages of Peeps and let them get really hard and stale. “just better” that way instead of nice and soft and fresh. Dunno why. Don’t think about it. Just like them that way, once a year! It’s an American thing.

Really cute, but could not handle the sugar overdose! LOL! My kids would love them.

Everyone makes fun of me for my love of peeps. They don’t understand that they are a rite of passage into spring and that’s what makes them so special. And and I do kind of love them when they get stale and crunchy. Don’t judge!

Adorable! What a fun little project.

I think these are SO cute — fancy boutique peeps! They don’t really fit in well with my healthier eating, but I’ll admit that I’m buying them for the kids baskets and will be stealing a couple for myself.

I love it! The kids will go crazy over these! Super cute idea. Thanks for sharing 🙂
