How do you make something good and make it great?
Well first off, make it Gluten Free,
and then dip it in chocolate!
So that's what we did!
I had my three year old help me make some chocolate covered Peeps!
Yes, Peeps are Gluten Free, isn't that some of the best news you've heard all day.
First start with your favorite color bunny peeps:
Put a lollipop stick halfway into the bunny:
(I cut 8 in sticks in half)
Prepare your chocolate by combine 1 cup milk chocolate or white chocolate chips and 1/2 T. shortening in a microwave-safe bowl.
Microwave for 30 seconds, stir. If the chocolate is not smooth and pretty thin, microwave for another 30 seconds. Stir.
You want the chocolate nice and smooth, and be careful while melting. You don't want it to scorch, since wasting chocolate is a big tragedy in my book.
Dip the bunnies and add chocolate/white/butterscotch chips for the nose and eyes.
Let set for about an hour or when chocolate is hard.
