Tuxedo Peeps: Last Minute Easter Treats

Hope you are all ready for Easter! The Coupons.com The Good Stuff blog has worked with contributor Brooke McClay to create these yummy and adorable Tuxedo Peeps – a great treat for kids and adults this Easter.

For the full recipe alongside some great savings to make it an affordable holiday creation, please see below. If you feel it is a great fit for your readers, I am happy to share additional details and answer questions.

Easy Tuxedo Peeps
Makes 12

  • ½ cup + 1 Tablespoon chocolate chips
  • ½ cup + 1 tablespoon white chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 12 bunny-shaped marshmallow Peeps

1. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate with ½ tablespoon of coconut oil. Heat just until the mixture starts to melt, it should not be hot to the touch. Stir until smooth. Repeat with white chocolate. Spoon 1 tablespoon of each melted chocolates into a small plastic bag.

2. Dip the bottom of each marshmallow Peep into the chocolate at a diagonal. You’ll need to dip them twice—once with a diagonal to the left, and once with the diagonal slanting to the right. Allow excess chocolate to drizzle from the bottom of the bunny before placing on a piece of parchment paper. Pipe a white chocolate bow-tie onto the neck of the bunny by snipping a small corner from the plastic bag.

3. Repeat until all chocolate is used. Chocolate-dipped Peeps should have white chocolate bows, and white chocolate-dipped peeps should have chocolate bows.

4. Allow your Peeps to cool and harden by placing them in the fridge. Serve and enjoy!
