Three Ghost Friends Peep Pops

Peeps are available at just about every store right now with the Easter holiday right around the corner.  We picked up a pack of rabbit-shaped Peeps that were on sale to make a Three Ghost Friends treat.

What you will need:
- 1 Pack of Rabbit-shaped Peeps
- Lollipop sticks (I purchased them at Michael's craft store)
- Meltable white chocolate wafers
- Edible Food Markers or Black Food Coloring and Toothpicks
- Knife
- Double Boiler or two pots for melting the chocolate
- Water
- Cookie Sheet

We began by melting the white chocolate wafers in the double boiler.  Once the water came to a boil it only took about 5 minutes for the chocolate to melt.

While we were waiting for the chocolate to melt, we chopped off the ears of each of the rabbits (and ate them, of course!)
My children and my nephew inserted one lollipop stick into the bottom of each Peep.  We learned later that it helps if you dip the stick in the chocolate first. This keeps the Peep in place on the stick.
Once the chocolate was melted, we dipped our peep in until it was completely covered with chocolate.
Once all the Peeps were covered we waited for them to dry and harden. 
We used edible food markers and toothpicks dipped in black food coloring to add our Three Ghost Friends' faces.
Yum!
We enjoyed reading the e-books again too! 
Happy Easter from the Three Ghost Friends!

  2. Great idea!Love that this is something the kids can help making for themselves. I was wondering, does the black food coloring turn the kiddos mouth's black?

    1. No, it did not turn their mouth black when they ate the ghost peep pops. However, I did put the toothpick I was using to decorate in my mouth and that turned it black for a little while!
