Here’s How to Make Jelly Bean-Stuffed Peeps Dipped in Cadbury Creme Egg
Between all of the numerous Easter activities, who has time to truly savor all the yummy candy that the Easter Bunny has to offer? The Cadbury Creme Eggs, the Marshmallow Peeps, the jelly beans? How will you ever have time to eat them all? Well, here’s how you can enjoy all three in a third of the time: Mash them all together to make jelly bean-stuffed Peeps dipped in Cadbury Creme Egg. Yowza.
Cadbury Creme Egg Coated Jelly Bean Stuffed Peeps
- 10 Chick Marshmallow Peeps
- 4 Cadbury Creme Eggs
- Option 1: 30 Jelly Beans (I used Starburst JBs)
- Option 2: 20 Mini Robin’s Eggs
- Option 3, and my personal preference: Half and half! 15 Jelly Beans and 10 Mini Robin’s Eggs
- Turn your tasty Peep upside-down and slice open its undercarriage.
- Stuff three jelly beans (or two Robin’s Eggs) into the Peep, and repeat until all Peeps have been stuffed.
- Roughly chop and melt Cadbury Creme Eggs in microwave. (This may take some finagling. Start slow. You will see the cream start to boil before the chocolate is fully melted, so melting it in increments and stirring in between helps.)
- Working quickly (and without burning off your fingerprints), dunk the bottom of each Peep into the melted Cadbury Creme Eggs to seal up the candy-filled crevice, and place on parchment paper to set.
Several helpful tips: The chocolate will come out of the microwave HOT and may solidify quickly, but you can always re-microwave it over and over until the job is done. DO NOT use wax paper when looking for a place to let the Peeps harden — it will melt and not peel off the chocolate easily.
When all is said and done, you will have created an awesomely efficient and ridiculously sugary Easter beast that can leap caloric intakes in a single bound. Enjoy!
