Last friday I made Peepsicles. Harry is not a fan of Peeps, and he loved these! Peeps, enrobed in dark chocolate and rolled in coconut, what’s not to love? This would be a fun activity for children (under supervision of course).
I got regular Peeps (on clearance since it was after Easter). You do not want to use the chick style Peeps! I tried dipping one in the chocolate just see how it held up. What a mess! I used Dove dark chocolate since anything with a really high cacao quality makes me sneeze. I got some of the cardboard style popsicle sticks at a craft store and they worked fine. I ended up being able to make 12 Bunnies.
Notes from my experience:
It took 65 seconds to melt the chocolate in my microwave (900 watts).
At first I used a bowl for the coconut, but that didn’t work out. You definitely need the flat surface of a plate.
I found using a knife was the easiest way to cover the Peep. I was able to control the amount of chocolate a lot better. Plus I was able to get around and in between the ears and sides a lot easier than with the silicon scraper.
