Tutorial: Chocolate Covered Peep Pops


If you're a regular reader of my blog, you know how much I love making cake pops!  If you're new here - Welcome!
(You can find past cake pop posts here, here, and here.)


As much as I love cake pops, they can be time consuming...  Since life can be busy, especially around holidays, I love creating quick and easy treats (without sacrificing cuteness, of course)!  My Easter time solution?

Chocolate Covered Peep Pops!


Supplies:
Peeps Marshmallow Bunnies
Milk Chocolate Candy Wafers
6" Lollipop Sticks
Styrofoam Block

Optional (but highly recommended) Supplies:
Clear Plastic Treat Bags
Twist Ties
Brightly Colored Ribbon


- Start by separating the peeps - set them aside.

 - Melt the candy wafers in a microwave safe bowl according to the package directions.


- One at a time, hold the peep by the ears and dip the bunny body into the melted chocolate, shaking off any excess.

- Take a lollipop stick and insert it into the bottom of the bunny body.


- Give the stick a few light taps against the side of the bowl to remove any remaining excess chocolate.

- Once dipped, place the bunnies in the styrofoam block to dry.


- After the bunny bodies are dry, it's time to dip the ears.

- One at a time, hold the bunnies by their stick and carefully dip the ears in the melted chocolate.  (Take care to shake & tap off any excess chocolate before returning them to the styrofoam block.)

- After the chocolate is completely dry, you can individually wrap each Peep Pop in a clear plastic treat bag, secure with a twist tie and add a ribbon...


Baskets of bunnies make an adorable centerpiece or a wonderful hostess gift!
