Marshmallow bunny Peeps coated in white chocolate and coconut to create a cute fluffy bunny treat!
I don’t know about you, but put any treat on these fun paper straws and they are instantly a most wanted snack!!
Easter is not Easter without Peeps!!
Decorating them to be super cute is an added bonus.
These are easy to make and something fun that you can have your kids help you out with. Be careful when you place the peeps on the straws, so that you don’t squish them. Spoon the melted chocolate over the peep and scrape the extra off with a spoon. Since these were going to be covered in coconut I wasn’t too concerned with how smooth the chocolate coating was. I was more concerned with maintaining the shape of the bunny peep so that we would still be able to tell what they were.
Cover the peep with the coconut while the chocolate is still soft so that it sticks. Lay the peeps on wax paper while they dry.
Once they dried gently tap to have the loose coconut fall off. Then add the faces with a frosting tip and some pink colored frosting, or any color that you choose!
Be prepared to fall in love with these fuzzy bunny peeps! Not only are they so CUTE, but they are yummy too! Your kids will have so much fun making them and decorating the faces.
