Happy Easter to all my wonderful readers! I hope you all are having a relaxing and enjoyable time with your friends and family. Frank and I made the drive up to Pittsburgh today to celebrate with my family at my parents house.
Originally I wasn't going to share a recipe today but my mother's birthday is next week and we're celebrating today so I'd like to share what I made for her. She loves Peeps so I made her a chocolate covered Peeps bouquet for her birthday that can also be used as a centerpiece for tonight's dinner. I also made these for my kids at school last week and they went wild over them. It's amazing how much better peeps taste when they are wrapped in chocolate.
Chocolate Covered Peeps
1 box Peeps bunnies (12 count)
1 box Peeps chicks (10 count)
Multiple colors of chocolate candy coating (pink, yellow, orange, green, and white)
1. Melt the chocolate candy coating one at a time in the microwave in 30 second intervals until the chocolate it totally melted.
2. When dipping the bunnies place a lollipop stick through the bottom of the bottom and push it up to the top of the head. Complete submerge the bunny in the chocolate then tap on the side of the bowl to remove excess chocolate. Immediately sprinkle with sprinkles and lay on waxed paper to harden.
3. When dipping the chicks dunk the bottoms only in the chocolate and immediately sprinkle with sprinkles. Place on waxed paper to harden. Once the chocolate has harden, gently stick the lollipop stick through the bottom of the chick and into it's head.
4. Repeat with all colors of chocolate. Place in floral foam inside of a vase to make a bouquet.
