Yes, you heard correctly people....chicks dipped in chocolate! Dark chocolate to be exact (leftover from the apricot recipe I posted last week). And the chicks are of the sugar coated marshmallow variety! (Was your mind in the gutter AGAIN?!)
I actually got the idea for these sinful treats while browsing thru my favorite local candy shop, Marini's. I could have purchased these chocolate drenched peeps but opted to make them at home instead. This allowed me to customize what kind of chocolate to use and cost me a lot less cash because a dozen peeps were only $1.50. I went with a rich dark chocolate for this batch but next time I'd like to try white chocolate instead! If you find the urge to make these at home, here's how:
- 10 marshmallow peeps
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
-In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave. Heat the chocolate for 25 seconds, stir, and repeat until all chips are melted.
