I don't know about you but i have always been amazed that peeps have stayed around this long. they are super sugary, they would last through a nuclear disaster and are spray painted with more glittery sugar. my stomach hurts just thinking about them. yet, you cover them in something and magically they become the best thing on the planet. i love easter candy!
this year i wanted to do something a little more sophisticated with my little peep friends so i melted some semi sweet chocolate, dipped them in, and then rolled them in coconut shavings. i used the bunny shaped peeps instead of the birds because the bunnies had a better shape. when i tried the chicks they just looked like chocolate lumps, much what i think a regular marshmallow would look like. whats the point of using a peep then?
after i was done dipping and rolling i popped then in the fridge for about 30 minutes. after they've had a chance to cool and harden, its time to eat! i would recommend making these the day you want to eat them, since the peep is nice and fresh. enjoy!
