Chocolate Covered Peeps and Easter Recipe Round-Up

Easter is just about here, so I thought I’d share a round up of recipe ideas from my past recipe posts. I also have a few more new recipes to share like these chocolate covered peeps.

Since I like covering things in chocolate, I thought I’d make some chocolate covered peeps. They were pretty easy to make, though a tad messy. Next time I might stick them on something before dipping them.

The idea came out of one of this year’s new candy items: peeps inside chocolate eggs.


Next year, I think I’ll make these with different colored white chocolates to make them a little more festive. Recipe is at the end of the post. Here are the rest of my Easter recipes:


Sour Cream Bunny Buns

Chicks in Cups

One Hour Bunny Buns

Soft Pretzel Bunnies

Sour Cream Bread Rolls

Honey Bread Rolls


Cinnamon Bubble Buns

Bubble Buns

Bacon Egg Pancake Cups

Fried Bacon Eggs

Bacon Egg Cups

Bacon Egg Toast Cups

Bacon Avocado Egg Cups

Colorful Marbled Eggs


Cadbury Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cadbury Brownies

Easter Mug Cake

And finally, chocolate covered peeps:

Chocolate Covered Peeps


1 1/2 cups chopped chocolate
2-3 tbsp oil
about 6 peeps


Place chocolate in bowl and melt in microwave, about 40 seconds. Stir until smooth. If chocolate is not completely melted, microwave for an additional 20 seconds and stir again. Add in about 2 tbsp oil to thin out the chocolate and make it easier for dipping and coating. If you don't think it's thin enough, add another tbsp. Dip peep in chocolate, either by holding small edge and dipping rest of Peep into the bowl or sticking peep onto a stick and dipping. Once peep is completely coated, set aside to let the chocolate set. Repeat with remaining peeps.

  1. I should have done that instead of buy the pre-made chocolate covered peep (sold invidually). found it when looking for that choco treasure egg (the wanna be kinder egg). i don’t really like how peeps taste, but i was willing to try one covered in chocolate. i’ll be eating it tomorrow! 🙂

    • Haha, my thoughts too! I also saw the chocolate egg one and I was thinking, hey it’s like the kinder eggs. And I also don’t like eating peeps, but thought they might taste better covered in chocolate. They do- though I’m still not a huge peep lover.
