An oldie but a GOODIE!  We’re on notice- Easter is around the corner!  Granted that corner is hidden by a disgusting grey pile of dirty snow, but, around the corner nonetheless!  A couple years ago I discovered the art of dipping the marshmallow sugar coated confections known as, Peeps, into melted fine white chocolate.  And then sprinkling with Easter decorations.  Magic happened.  I feel it’s just too good not to repeat here with you today!  And, if you’re feeling extra crafty, and just cannot resist the lure that is the marshmallow Peep, check out my other favorite- a DIY Peep wreath, courtesy of our wonderful Blogger, Cora!

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.

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



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.
