Easter is near, nothing to fear, the Peeps are here! How do you like my rhyming skills? I believe I was a rapper in a former life. My skills are ridiculous.
On a more truthful note, Peeps and their cute colorful selves love to make an appearance around Spring time. From ducks to bunnies, you can find all the colors of the pastel rainbow.
For those of us who like to get fancy with our peeps, this Peeps fondue recipe is a delight.
Please be warned, there were little pink bunnies and baby blue ducks harmed during the making of this fondue. I have no regrets.
First, melt a 12 oz bag of white chocolate morsels and 4 TBSP heavy cream over a double boiler over low heat. Stir until smooth.
*If you don’t have a double boiler, make your own. I grabbed two saucepans of similar sizes, put some water in the bigger one and let it come to a simmer. I placed my other saucepan over it and pure magic, I had fancy kitchen equipment.
Next, break a 10-12 pack of Peeps, bunnies or ducks, whichever you prefer, into small pieces and add to your chocolate mixture. Stir until all of your little Peeps have dissolved.
Place in Fondue dish, keeping warm and stirring ever so often to ensure even heating.
*Please note that your pastel colors may fade once added to the chocolate as my blue duckies turned greenish. Feel free to add a bit of food coloring to achieve the desired color.
Dip your favorite fruit, vegetables?, and other items in this dip. Our favorite was to dip pretzels for the sweet and salty taste. Enjoy.
*Also note that once your mixture cools down, it’s still delicious! Let it cool down too long, it will harden and become a delicious block of chocolate. The deliciousness will never end!
Look at mama bear, chillin’ poolside with her baby bunnies!
