Last Easter I treated my office to a new Easter treat, courtesy of everyone’s favorite idea bank, Pinterest.  I pinned this little gem around Easter last year from Your Home Based Mom, and had a blast dipping and sprinkling Peeps.  This year, with Jake two years old, he is going to help me with our new Easter tradition.  Just when you thought Easter could not get any cuter and more pink and pastel, chocolate dipped Peeps are here to prove to you that yes, Easter cuteness has been taken to the next level.

These white chocolate dipped Peeps were a huge hit at my office- those normally not into the sticky gooey sweetness that is the sugar coated Peep were even intrigued and had to bite into one of these babies.  I don’t know about you, but you dip anything in chocolate and I’ll eat it!  So, if you’re looking for a cute gift to hand out to your child’s class for Easter, or to surprise your family and friends at your Easter dessert table, I think you’ll find a lot of fun in these.  So, get out your colored sprinkles, and heat up some white chocolate, and have your kids dip and sprinkle to their heart’s content!

Supplies:

  • 20-25 marshmallow Peep chicks
  • 1 bag white chocolate chips
  • Easter sprinkles
  • cellophane bags
  • pastel curling ribbon

Directions:

Heat white chocolate in the microwave (or double boiler) until melted.  Remove from heat, and dip Peep bottoms in melted white chocolate.  Sprinkle white chocolate with Easter sprinkles.  Set Peep on its side to harden.  Once white chocolate is set, package in cellophane bag and tie with curling ribbon.

This is a great project to do with kids- the melted chocolate will cool to the touch once it’s removed from the heat, and your kids will love dipping and sprinkling with a variety of easter sprinkles.

    This is the CUTEST ever. Between the plastic egg snakes from yesterday’s post and these peeps, I think I will be super busy this next week!

    What are the little pellets that you have in the green sprinkles?
