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!
Your favorite Easter candy…dipped in chocolate and sprinkles! You’ll love this Peeps Pops recipe. Fun ideas for variations included!
melted chocolate (dark, white, etc.)
assorted sprinkles or crushed graham crackers
wax paper or parchment paper
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!
Also check out my dipped “chick” Peeps below! So easy and fun! :)
Oh, so cute! Love both the bunnies and the chicks! x
These are absolutely adorable! I may have to toss these in last minute with the rest of my Easter menu. Love the sprinkles! Happy Easter!!
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 :)
Your peep pops are beyond adorable!!!
Those are adorable! They remind me of those small animal crackers in frosting, but in bunny form!
Now those are THE cutestest things I’ve ever seen. I wish I would have seen this post before Easter. Well done.
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!
When I saw these, I absolutely had to throw them into my Easter menu at the last minute. They were adorable, very easy and delicious. Thanks for sharing!
Hi! We are having a big Family Easter Brunch/Egg Hunt the day before Easter – how far in advance do you think I can make these?
Went out n got me a melting pot, lots of peeps bunny n chicks, sprinkles, chocolate melt n sticks tomorrow we’re having a dipping party…my sons can’t wait ages 3 n 5
Soooo not easy. They look bad. Only thing i can say is they taste good but had to stick em in the freezer to harden. … the wax paper and counter waiting thing wasn’t good enough.
Just made the white chocolate bunnies. They are adorable and sooo good!
Thanks Sheri, I’m glad you enjoyed them!
I was surprised at how good these came out. I really thought I was going to wind up with a sticky mess but they came out perfect!
