Peeps Pops


To all my cake-pops-loving “peeps” out there, allow me introduce you to my Easter bunny version — Peeps Pops!

I don’t know about you, but as soon as spring rolls around, Peeps seem to mysteriously show up in nearly every aisle in the grocery store.  So this week I finally gave in and bought a few of the famous colorful boxes — but of course, decided to gussy them up a bit.

My lollipop sticks have been calling my name lately.  So I turned the Peeps into “pops”, melted a batch of white and dark chocolate, pulled out some of my sprinkles collection (this is a perfect way to use them up!) and went to dipping!  I also ground up some graham crackers to make a Peeps version of my favorite s’mores pops.  Sure enough, these were totally simple (and took about 10% of the time it takes to make cake pops!!).  Perfect for making with kids, or for letting the “kid” come out in your friends and family as they enjoy these!

Happy Easter!

So many options!!!

Peeps Pops

Your favorite Easter candy...dipped in chocolate and sprinkles! You'll love this Peeps Pops recipe. Fun ideas for variations included!

Ingredients:

melted chocolate (dark, white, etc.)
assorted sprinkles or crushed graham crackers
lollipop sticks
wax paper or parchment paper

Directions:

Prepare the "pops" by first inserting a lollipop stick into each bunny.  (I poked mine nearly through, so that they wouldn't fall off during dunking!)  Then, while holding the stick, carefully dip a Peep into the chocolate until thoroughly coated, then remove from chocolate and cover with desired sprinkles.  Then place the pop on wax paper and leave until the chocolate is cooled and firm.  Enjoy!

If you make this recipe, be sure to snap a photo and hashtag it #gimmesomeoven. I'd love to see what you cook!

    You could do the same with the Christmas tree Peeps, the Ghost Peeps or any of the others they now sell almost all year round. What a good idea. Always looking for easy “treats” to make with my nieces and this will be a hit I’m sure.

    These are perfect! I was really hoping I’d have time to make some before Sunday, if not I’ll just make them a post-Easter Spring treat :)

    Those are adorable! They remind me of those small animal crackers in frosting, but in bunny form!

    So great! My brother is a peeps fanatic. I’m going to send this to him and I can almost 100% promise that gimmesomeoven will get some serious visibility via his facebook page! :) Made your blueberry crumb bars last week with fresh blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries – they were SO good! Thanks Ali!
