peep pops and a printable

Here is a super free printable I ran across from Tattered and Inked. Love it.
He has risen, indeed!
Oh my. These are good. Like so good that I don’t really ever want any other Easter candy…..ever. It’s a good thing I know that I have to bring them to Easter dinner tomorrow, or I might eat them all.
They’re like peeps for grown ups. and kids. yum. I think it’s the semi-sweet melting chocolate I used. I’ve heard from many people that Trader Joe’s has awesome chocolate. (and now I know, but kind of wish I didn’t.)
Ohhh they are good. I kept them in the fridge so the chocolate would stay hard. So, you first bite through the hard shell of the almost bitter chocolate and then you reach the soft marshmallow inside and you can still feel the crunchy sugar from the outside of the peep. Perfect. I’m sure someone more eloquent than myself could have described that way better, but you get the point! :)
I found the idea here at Rook No. 17 and she actually used Trader Joe’s chocolate too. She says “I used the Semi Sweet Chocolate Callets from Trader Joe’s. They’re easy to work with and the taste is sophisticated! If you’re a chocolate connoisseur this is the way to go.” She is so right.
I happened to remember this on our last trip to T.J.’s and picked some up. I’m SO glad I did. I will never go back. Goodbye Nestle’. And I’m not even a chocolate connoisseur. :)
What you need:
lollipop sticks
bunny peeps
melting chocolate (seriously you should find a Trader Joe’s) :)
mini marshmallows
What you do:
1. Cut the mini marshmallows in half.
2. Push a lollipop stick up through each bunny without going through the ears.
3. Dip into the delicious melted chocolate. Resist the urge to eat it by the spoonful.
4. Lay the sweet little treats on a wax paper lined pan. Press half a mini marshmallow onto each before they dry. Put them in the fridge to set.
5. Wrap each in a cellophane bag and tie a ribbon. (Or not.)
6. Take a bite.
