Peep Week 2013- Day 5

peep2013Today we made Peep Pops, motherpeepers! I have no video for you today for the following reasons:

1. I have two enormous zits on my chin and yes, I blame peeps for this.

2. We are so behind! Never in all the peep weeks have I made things and posted them on the same day...until this year.

3. I was down a helper which meant I was peep wrangling, directing my lone helper and could not hold a camera at the same time.

4. I am weary.

But, I do have pictures because as the youngsters say, "Pics or it didn't happen" and the Peep Pops happened!

The recipe was taken from the same book mentioned yesterday and called for the following:

6 oz of semisweet chocolate, chopped

1/2 cup coconut and 1/2 cup chopped peanuts

12 craft sticks

12 peeps

For the first time in the history of Peep Week, we used bunnies - a crazy break from tradition! The reason is that the recipe called for bunnies but also bunnies are flat and would stay on a stick better. It's physics, people!

We strayed from the recipe in two ways: 1) We did coconut, chopped pecans and chopped Reese's Peanut Butter Minis at Zeca's request and 2) I used 2 cups of chocolate chips so that there would be enough chocolate for me to dip the bunnies easily.

Step 1: Impale bunnies


Step 2: Dip bunnies in melted chocolate, dip in chosen toppings and place on cookie sheet


Step 3: Freeze for at least 30 minutes and then enjoy! 


This was by far the the easiest treat we have ever made! Zeca thought they were absolutely delicious and I thought they were pretty good too. I had a Reese's one and it was rather sweet but still tasty. These come with the Casa de Fox stamp of approval!
