Chocolate Dipped Peeps
8 Easter Peeps
6 oz. white or regular chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped peanuts or colored sprinkles
Melt the chips in a small bowl. You can do this in the microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring between each interval. When the chocolate is melted, hold the peeps by their top and dip into the chocolate. Use the back side of small spoon to get the chocolate where you want it. Place the chopped nuts or sprinkles on wax paper or a small plate. Dip the peep into the nuts to get a thin layer on the sides of the peep, try not to get nuts on the bottom of the peep. Stand the peep up on wax paper, forming a stand with the chocolate that is on the bottom of the peep. Allow these to dry. You can decorate with a bow around your peep’s necks.
"Grammy, what do I do with the leftover chocolate?" hahaha!
