Easter Bunny Peep Pops

Spring is finally here–happy first day of Spring everyone! I love it when I can whip up a sweet treat that only takes a few minutes and has a few ingredients…. and most importantly is super cute like these pops!

These cute Easter bunnies are so adorable and so easy to make! They are also fun to make because you can make them however you want! I love marshmallows so I love when I see Peeps displayed at grocery stores this time of year. I feel like Peeps are only around for such a short amount of time and they don’t get used as much as they should. Kids will love this recipe, I know my 2 year old Goddaughter did! When I gave her a treat bag full of these, she was so happy to see this colorful treat and the first thing she ate was the Peep, of course!

These treats are so adorable and will put a smile on anyone!

Ingredients

12 pretzel rods

12 Peeps (I used blue and pink bunnies)

1 cup white chocolate candy melts

Sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Melt chocolate in microwave for 1 ½ minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted and smooth. Pour melted chocolate in a drinking glass or mug.
  3. Dip and or spoon each rod to cover about ½ the pretzel in the chocolate.
  4. Scrape excess chocolate off on edge of the cup. Smooth out chocolate with a spoon or knife so it is dipped evenly and smoothly on the rod.
  5. Sprinkle each rod with your favorite sprinkles and place on baking sheet. Spoon about a ½ tsp. of melted chocolate on the back of a peep and position on rod to set. Repeat until finished!
  6. Let each rod set for about 15 minutes, you can also place them in the refrigerator to cool and harden faster. Enjoy these adorable sweet treats!

There is just something about Peeps that makes me happy, maybe because they are so cute! Does anyone else feel that every Holiday comes and goes too fast? I always feel so rushed to enjoy all the festive treats that come once a year, so I might as well make them when I can! Who doesn’t love a cute and delicious sweet treat anyways?

 

Easter Peeps Rice Krispy Treats

Rice krispy treats are so easy to make and take almost no time at all! Everyone loves peeps especially during the spring time so what a cute and fun way to add a festive Easter twist!

Yield: 20

6 cups of rice cereal
5 cups of mini marshmallows
1 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup sprinkles
1/4 cup white chocolate
20 marshmallow peeps

Steps:
1. In a large bowl add cereal and set aside. In a microwavable safe bowl melt together the marshmallows and butter until slightly melted, usually about 1 1/2 minutes. Pour marshmallow mixture into large bowl and stir with a spatula until combined.

2. Add in sprinkles until they are mixed in evenly. Then lightly***grease baking sheet with cooking spray and pour rice krispys into pan pressing down with a spatula to make it even.

3. Melt white chocolate and with a butter knife or teaspoon, dab about 1/2 tsp of white chocolate onto each peeps and place on top of rice krispy treats.

*You can place the peeps any way you like on treats. I like and recommend placing them about an inch apart from each other so when you cut them, each rice krispy square will have a peeps. SO cute 🙂
