Chocolate Covered Easter Peeps on a Stick

The Easter bunny always brings the best sweet treats. Please tell me I’m not the only one that likes Easter Peeps? I know people either love them or hate them- and I love ’em! Especially when they are dipped in chocolate. You know I like to dip things in chocolate, marshmallows, ice cream, pretzels, and candy canes. Well, these Peeps were just asking for it. And they were delicious! Even if you don’t love Peeps, I have a feeling you’re going to like this version. Try it this year!

Supplies for Chocolate Dipped Easter Peeps:

  • chocolate to melt (you could also try white chocolate!)
  • Easter Peeps
  • lollipop sticks
  • wax paper
  • plate or tray

Chocolate Dipped Easter Peeps

To melt your chocolate, place it in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Stir it, then if needed, microwave for another 20 seconds. Repeat if necessary. This works best with chocolate chips.

Place a lollipop stick into the bottom of the Peep. Dip your Peep into the chocolate and place on a plate lined with wax paper. Let this harden. You can also place them in the fridge for faster results.

  1. Surely you got this idea from “Peep Jousting!” You know… where you insert a toothpick into two peeps placed facing each other in a microwave. As they expand they become fragile and full of air bubbles so of course you bet on which peep will slay the other in half.

  2. My adult daughter won’t eat anything with eyes; so she hates PEEPS. I shall torture her with this link. :)

    As for myself, I’m a vanilla ice cream kind of girl. I love chocolate, but NOT chocolate ice cream; wouldn’t want to adulterate it. I’m thinking chocolate covered PEEPS is adulteration squared!!! Wrong on two counts!!! But, to each his own. :)

  3. OMG! Chocolate covered marshmallow is my fav! I LOVE Peeps. My daughter is going to have so much fun doing this with me! Thanks!

  4. oh my gosh! i love these!!!!!!! thanks so much for this wonderful idea! i’ll definitly be making these with my sons! :)

  5. Brandy – Ha, I’m not a huge fan of peeps either, but they are delicious with chocolate! Well, anything is better with chocolate!

    Tylynn – I know a lot of people who like their peeps to harder before they eat them. And yes, dipped in chocolate, YUM!

  6. I LOVE this idea! I saw online that they made chocolate covered peeps to sell and had to try them. After the long search, I tried it and it was awful! They colored the marshmallow inside yellowed and then covered in nasty chocolate.
    I want to try these! I bet they will be 10 times better your way! Not to mention that they are darling. I love peeps but they have to be semi hard for them to be any good. Then dipped in chocolate? YUM! THanks
