Did Someone Say Peeps?


Marshmallow peeps are so cute and come in such 
fun spring colors, but I have to admit that I 
haven't ever loved to eat them.  They are a hit
with the family so I buy them every year.

I saw these white chocolate dipped ones all
over the internet and since they looked so cute
I thought I'd give them a try.


Guess what?  A little dip in white chocolate really takes
the taste of marshmallow peeps over the top.

Yes, I really liked them.  I couldn't stop eating them.

Here they are presented in the baskets I have had for
my children for at least 20 years.  I have no idea where
I found these, but I have carefully protected them
over the years with their delicate wicker ears.


Talk about a fun and easy project to do with the kids.
My daughter and I whipped these up in just minutes.

White Chocolate Dipped Peeps
Melt 2-3 C. white chocolate discs in the microwave 
using a microwave safe dish and stirring every 30 seconds.
If you want to read my tutorial on melting chocolate in
the microwave click here.

Stir until smooth.  Use a kitchen shears to cut the peeps
apart.  Then holding them gently by the heads, dip their
bottoms in the melted white chocolate.  Scrape the excess
chocolate off the bottom and then sprinkle with desired
candy sprinkles or sugars.  Place on a piece of
parchment paper to dry.



They really like a little dressing up too.




Bag them up as little neighbor gifts.


Even if you are not a huge marshmallow peep fan give this a try.
They are cute and delish.

I will be posting these with

Those heirloom bunny baskets are just adorable, Jacqueline! How wonderful to still have them intact after all these years.

I think the chocolate dipped peeps are a great idea. EVERYTHING is better with chocolate on it, right???

Happy Monday!

Such a neat idea. I love the clever things you come up with.
I was thinking of you yesterday. I have to decorate a spring table for a luncheon at church..My thoughts were: Now what would my friend from Purple Chocolat Home come up with!!

Have a blessed day.

Those are so cute! I've never been a big fan of Peeps, either, even though I love marshmallows. Weird, huh? You've really dressed them up!
