How to make chocolate covered peeps
These chocolate covered peeps are a fun and easy way to dress up your favorite peeps! I like to use a variety of colors and shapes, but you can use whichever you like best. The peeps get a quick dip in dark or white chocolate and are finished off with a coat of pastel sprinkles. My kids LOVED helping me make these peeps, and they also happen to taste delicious.
You can either use chocolate chips or candy melts for this recipe. I find that candy melts are often easier to work with as the candy melts smooth and thin and doesn’t clump up on the peeps when you dip them. My favorite brand to use is Ghirardelli Melting Wafers, it tastes just like real chocolate but melts like a dream!
Chocolate Covered Peeps
- 12 peeps
- 1 cup candy melts (white, dark or both)
- 1/2 cup pastel sprinkles
Place the candy melts in a bowl and microwave in 30 second increments until melted; stir until smooth. Dip part of each peep into the candy melts, scraping off any excess. Add sprinkles to the dipped part of the peep. Place the dipped peeps on a sheet of parchment paper, then let sit until dry. Repeat the process with the remaining peeps.
