Chocolate Covered Peeps Pops

I like to make cakepops, but they take a lot of prep time, so for Christmas I tried doing chocolate covered oreo pops instead and they turned out great. I decided to do something similar for Easter.  Peeps Pops!  These were so easy!  I decided to try them in Pink Wilton wafers, a white fondue wafer, and a milk chocolate fondue melting to see the difference (and to have different colors).  Hands down the milk chocolate was the easiest to dip and tasted the best.  It was the thinnest of the three so it dipped easily and didn't weigh the marshmallow down, and in turn the coating wasn't as thick as the other two.  The white and pink were definitely prettier for Easter, but I think next time I would just go with Milk chocolate.

Prep Time: 20 min

Bunny Peeps
Melting wafers (white, pastel color, or chocolate)
Popsicle sticks

1.  Separate the bunnies and prep a cookie sheet with wax paper, or use a Styrofoam block to stick the sucker sticks in.

2. Heat melting chocolate in microwave until melted stirring every 30 seconds.

3. Dip end of stick into the chocolate and then push into bottom of the bunny (go pretty deep because the chocolate can get heavy).  Then dip bunny into the chocolate and coat all sides.  Be careful the bunny doesn't flop over or of the stick as the marshmallow is pretty flimsy against the heavy chocolate.

4. Place chocolate coated bunny on wax paper or push into in Styrofoam block.  Shake sprinkles over bunnies.  Let dry until chocolate is firm and store in a air tight container.
