Peeping PEEPS

Peeping Peeps

Well hello there!

What better way to eat a Peep than in a chocolate Easter egg?

Two weeks ago I bought about five dozen peeps. Pink ones, purple ones, yellow ones, blue ones, limited edition ones(!)… all in attempt to making something fun and creative for the Peeps Hop Along Party. Something more than just a chocolate dipped peep. I ended up with these guys. Peeping peeps, or they could be hatching, but bunnies hatching out of eggs is just silly. So just roll with me, ok?

You may recognize the chocolate eggs if you frequent this site…

CandiQuik Chocolate Eggs

Only this time I added a base to the egg and stuffed them with Peeps!

Fill your silicon mold with a spoonful or two of CandiQuik, using the back of a spoon to push the coating up the sides. If your sides feel thin, you may want to repeat this process.

Using a small knife, I trimmed the top of each egg. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect, this makes it look more natural!

I also cut the bottom half of each peep off. You can decide what to do with the leftover marshmallow, I’m confident it will go to good use.

Note: I only had to trim the chicks peeps

I used a toothpick to apply CandiQuik along the edge of one egg to act as a glue and hold both halves together.

Then spoon a tiny amount of CandiQuik on wax paper and press your egg on top, hold in place until the egg is able to stand on its own (this should only take a few moments).
