Easter Bunny Carrots

28 Mar

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

If the Easter Peeps S’mores, didn’t satisfy your sweet tooth (you must have a GIANT sweet tooth), then maybe this bonus Easter treat will be the perfect addition your holiday spread. It’s just a simple twist on delicious chocolate covered strawberries… or so I thought.

On Pinterest, these chocolate covered Strawberries, made to look like carrots for the Easter bunny, looked very appetizing and super simple. However, unless you’re an expert when it comes to making chocolate covered strawberries, this treat can become a major flop.

Chocolate Troubles

First off, white chocolate is a lot sweeter than regular chocolate and getting it to the right consistency was a little tricky. But once you’ve got your chocolate melted, just use food coloring to get the chocolate to just the right shade of “carrot orange.” The next step is to dip the strawberries into the chocolate. Sounds simple right? Well getting the chocolate to cover the whole strawberry (and make it look like a carrot) is pretty difficult, unless you want to lose your strawberry to the chocolate.

Dipping Strawberries

Overall, these chocolate covered strawberries were a nice treat and will definitely add to your Easter spread.  The idea of making them look like carrots for the Easter bunny is very creative and will attract both kids and adults. However, don’t expect your strawberries to come out looking pinperfect. Happy Easter!

Easter Peeps S’mores

peeps smores setup

For everyone celebrating Easter this weekend, you may have been trying to find some new treats to enjoy with family and friends. Of course there’s tons of cakes, cupcakes, and anything involving Easter eggs, but why not try something different for Easter?  Eventually, I found something on Pinterest that caught my attention right away… peeps s’mores!

Who didn’t love making s’mores as a kid? Whether in front of a fire, or over the stove top, you can always have fun making this deliciously messy treat.  It’s simple and it’s a classic. So finding an Easter version was pretty exciting.  Instead of using a regular marshmallow, you use an iconic, colorful Easter peeps.

A Little Too Messy…

I decided to go with the bunny peeps, but the little chicks will do too. This specific pin says to build your s’more (chocolate and peep stacked between two graham crackers), and then microwave for 20 seconds. If you follow these directions, you might find that the marshmallow peep comes really close to exploding in your microwave (who would have wanted to clean that up?).  Ten to fifteen seconds will probably melt the chocolate and the marshmallow peep to just the right gooeyness.

But Finger-Licking Good!

But even with super-sized peeps, these Easter s’mores are extremely tasty. The pop of color that the peeps add, and their sugar coat, really make these s’mores pinperfect. You’ll definitely feel like a kid again trying to eat this deliciously messy treat. You might want to enjoy your peeps s’mores after some Easter egg decorating. Happy Easter!
