Here’s a quick Easter treat idea if you’re still needing something to fill Easter baskets tomorrow, Peep Pops! The idea comes from a blog called “A Bird and a Bean” and is pretty easy.
package of Peeps bunnies
Wilton candy melts, in whatever colors you like
Melt the candy melts according to package directions. Insert popsicle stick in bottom of each bunny and dip carefully into melted candy melts, gently shaking excess chocolate off before setting to dry on wax paper. Cut mini marshmallows in half with knife sprayed with cooking spray and gently press one half onto side of each bunny near the bottom for a tail while chocolate is still soft. Allow chocolate to set before lifting off wax paper.
I also dipped some Peeps chicks:
For these guys I just dipped the bottoms in the melted candy melts and then rolled them in some Easter shaped sprinkles (grass and eggs) and let dry. For presentation, I set each into an Easter cupcake liner and then into a clear plastic bag tied with pink Baker’s twine.
Here’s a look at how I packaged the Peep Pops:
I found those cute tags on “The Crafting Chicks” blog and they were free! Thanks Crafting Chicks!
Happy Easter everyone!
