I am so excited today to share my Easter “peep” gift tags printable’s! Easy to make and a super fun Easter treat!
Peeps hold the record for being the #1 non chocolate treat sold at Easter (and have for 20 years!) BUT I’m changing that! EVERYTHING is better with chocolate. Actually Peeps themselves now sells chocolate covered peeps if you want to take a short cut and not do this yourself!
SOOO to make these, you need PEEPS, lollipop sticks, chocolate (I like to us a 2 C pyrex for melting and dipping), 3″x4″ baggie, bakers twine and of course my labels! I also use a flower foam block I use for drying my cake balls so they already have holes for the lollipop sticks.
This is super easy and my kids loved helping with this. Skewer all the peeps on the lollipop sticks.
Melt the Chocolate, I have a handy “melt chocolate” button on my microwave so it’s super easy, I melted about 10 oz of my favorite dark chocolate.
Dip your peep all the way in, make sure to get the butt covered! Pull it out and shake it off (while still part way in the cup, you don’t want to shake chocolate all over your counter).
Place the stick in to something (like I use the flower foam block) and keep dipping! Isn’t the chocolate gorgeous??? Mmmmm
And let the chocolate Dry! I use high quality chocolate so mine dried pretty fast and really smooth. Is it just me? or is chocolate just so so SO pretty?
Once they are dry we can package them up to give to teachers, friends, etc… That’s when the bags, tags and bakers twine come in handy.
I cut my bakers twine pretty long to tie my bags, then tie the tag on and add a bow!
All done and ready to hand out! Who would you hand yours out too? My kids are planning on giving these to school, church and piano teachers and classmates, they are each doing like 2 dozen? But it’s so easy I’m happy to let them do it!
Of course if your just going to give them to your own kids you don’t have to bag them, Princess loved modeling for me and of course loved eating them even more. But she had to have a PINK tag…
Baby boy wasn’t so picky, he took whatever label he could get off the quickest, after the photoshoot I found a few empty wrappers and half eaten peeps all over the basement! He’s so sneaky!
