Last week I participated in the Spring Hop Along Peeps party with 22 other amazeball bloggers and I collected a LOT of Peeps to prepare for it.  So now, I’ve got DOZENS of Peeps and needed something to make with them – S’mores Peeps Pops!  Seriously can’t go wrong with dipping marshmallows in chocolate and crushed graham crackers!

I had a few helpers with these yummy treats!  My daughter and a few of the neighborhood kids came over to help decorate some of the Peeps.  We had graham crackers, sprinkles, jimmies and little baby chicks to sprinkle all over the chocolate.   Afterwards, one of the parents told me they thought these were such a great idea that next year for Easter they were going to decorate Peeps instead of eggs!  I think I started a new family tradition!

After the chocolate hardened on these pops, I packaged them up in treat bags and tied them with a piece of string and sent them to school with my daughter to hand out in one of her classes.  They make the perfect individual treat!

Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • 3-4 dozen Peeps Chicks in assorted colors
  • 250g Lindt chocolate (or any other chocolate you want – just not baking chips)
  • 1 cup crushed graham crackers
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Styrofoam block
  • Wax paper (optional)

Instructions
  1. Chop the chocolate into small chunks and place them in a microwave safe glass bowl. Microwave the chocolate for 45 seconds on 60% heat. Stir and repeat until the chocolate is 85% melted. Continue stirring until all the chocolate has melted and it is smooth.
  2. Dip the bottom of the Peep chick in chocolate and shake off excess chocolate until no more drips off.
  3. Set Peep into the crushed graham crackers and press cracker onto the chocolate until it is covered.
  4. Dip about ½ inch of the lollipop stick into the chocolate the press it up into the bottom of the Peep – don’t press it all the way through.
  5. Press the lollipop stick into the Styrofoam block and allow to set until the chocolate has hardened. NOTE: If you don’t have lollipop sticks, you can just place the completed Peeps on wax paper to harden.
  6. Store in air tight containers or use candy bags to individually wrap them.
