Description[edit | edit source]
There’s nothing cuter than a PEEPS Pop. Many aficionados think that PEEPS taste best frozen—cold and creamy, and a bit chewy. These Bunnies are dipped in chocolate and rolled in coconut or chopped nuts, making them the ultimate frozen treat.
Type of Craft[edit | edit source]
Difficulty Level[edit | edit source]
Supplies Needed[edit | edit source]
- 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
- 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut or 1/2 cup peanuts (about 2 ounces), finely chopped
- 12 wooden craft sticks, available at candy-making–supply stores
- 12 PEEPS® Bunnies, any color
Directions[edit | edit source]
Step One: Line a baking sheet with wax paper.
Step Two: Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water. Stir occasionally until melted and smooth.
Step Three: Place the coconut or nuts on a plate.
Step Four: Insert 1 craft stick about halfway into the bottom section of 1 Bunny. Dip into the chocolate, turning to coat completely. Holding the dipped Bunny over the bowl of chocolate, use a knife to scrape the excess chocolate off the back and bottom of the Bunny, letting it fall back into the bowl. Hold the Bunny over the plate of coconut or nuts and sprinkle to cover all sides.
Step Five: Place the Bunny on the prepared baking sheet and repeat to dip the remaining Bunnies. Freeze until firm, about 30 minutes. Serve frozen. PEEPSicles can be stored in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 1 week.
