You all know how much I love to make chocolate-covered marshmallows. Marshmallows are always yummy, but to me, the ultimate marshmallow treat comes out just in time for Easter, and that’s marshmallow Peeps. Covering them with chocolate just sends them over the top! This fun snack is super easy to make and even yummier to eat!
Then all you have to do is dip the Peeps into the chocolate and swirl them a bit until they are completely coated. Please be careful when doing this, because as wonderful as chocolate is, it can be quite hot when melted (I actually hurt my hand because I wasn't paying attention). Once dipped, the Peeps will need to harden. I stuck mine into some packing foam that I happened to have. This let them stay upright and avoid any flat spots, although the bunnies did slide down the sticks a little! You could also just lay them on parchment paper, which would keep them stable on the stick but then you get flat spots on the back. You'll have to choose which is more important to you here.
Once the chocolate dries, use some melted white chocolate (in a plastic bag or disposable icing bag with the tip cut) to pipe on an outline of the bunny and even some cute little tails on the back. Aren’t they adorable? I think these would make a perfect treat for Little Jo’s preschool class. They are so simple and inexpensive to make!
