I couldn’t leave an Easter dessert out of my quick crafts week. Can you get dessert done in 15 minutes or less and still have it be super cute? Yep! Especially when you chocolate cover some super cute Peeps marshmallows. All this week I am teaming up with Carolina from 30 Minute Crafts for some Craft Lightning. Craft Lightning is quick and easy crafts that can be completed in 15 minutes or less. You gotta love a quick craft right? If you have missed any of the fun this week be sure to check out my favor bags, button carrot, Easter centerpiece, day 1, day 2, and day 3 features. Whew. That is a ton of fast crafting goodness. Want to see your craft in one of my featured posts? Be sure to link up to the Craft Lightning linky party today! Today I am going to show you how to make a super simple Easter dessert of chocolate covered Peeps marshmallow pops.
Your kids will love these and well trust me you will too. I used wooden skewers for my marshmallow pops. Just slide them into those cute Peeps bunnies.
Now lets talk chocolate coating. I use chocolate almond bark or candy coating. You can find it in the baking aisle around the chocolate chips and baking chocolate. Why? It is easier to handle, hardens quickly, and I have never had a failure with it. So melt your candy coating according to the package directions and dip in your bunnies coating them on all sides. Then just tap on the side of the bowl so that any excess comes back off.
The other question you might have is why the Peeps bunnies and not the chicks. While the chicks are cute when not chocolate covered I personally do not like the look of the chocolate covered version. Below is a chick and bunny side by side.
Allow your marshmallow pops to dry on aluminum foil or waxed paper for just a few minutes. Seriously the candy coating makes this a great quick dessert and will harden lightning fast. Then you are ready to display or serve your Easter dessert.
Any quick and easy dessert needs a quick and easy display. This is my Peeps mason jar centerpiece that I showed you last week. You can actually make this one in 10 minutes or less. During the video tutorial, I put a cup down inside my Peeps for flowers. Just remove that cup to use the same idea for a marshmallow pop holder. Stick the skewers down into the buttons and they will be very stable.
You have an Easter dessert that almost looks too good to eat…almost. Your kids or guests (or you) will devour these chocolate covered Peeps marshmallow pops in no time. Y’all enjoy and stick around as we have more Craft Lightning to come.
