Fun chocolate dipped Peeps bunnies only take 3 ingredients and just a few minutes to put together. They will make a tasty and cute addition to your Easter treat menu.
Easter food is the cutest. There is just something about all of the bunnies, chicks and eggs that make the holiday one of my favorites to cook for.
So we are back with another super simple treat to make. A chocolate coated bunny with a fluffy marshmallow tail.
Whipping Up Some Chocolate Bunnies
All you need are some Peeps, chocolate for dipping and mini marshmallows. We added a popsicle stick to make them easier to dip and even more fun to eat, but that is optional.
These bunnies are dipped in milk chocolate compound chocolate. You don’t have to temper it and it tastes amazing.
You could also dip your Peeps in colorful candy melts. They would be really cute and the coating helps to keep the marshmallow center softer longer than decorating with plain Peeps.
Ideas for Using Chocolate Covered Peeps
Then enjoy your cute chocolate bunny goodies on their own or use them as a cupcake topper. Or put them on skewers and arrange them in a vase as part of a centerpiece.
If you make fruit boquets, they would be a fun addition to that. Or put them on a Graham cracker and microwave it until it’s a melty bunny s’more.
You could float one in a mug of hot chocolate too. We’ve had plenty of cold Easters here in the Midwest where hot chocolate could make an appearance!
