Easter Cake with White Chocolate Peeps


These cute little bunnies look just like PEEPS, but they have a secret...
They are made out of white chocolate!

I love their bright colors - just perfect for an Easter cake.

And not only are they adorable, but delicious too!
The smooth chocolate combined with the sugar crunch is fantastic.



What You Need:
White chocolate, almond bark or white candy melts
Decorating bags or ziplocs
Pastel sanding sugar
Chocolate chips

First, click on the template below to open it.
Right click and select "Save Image As", then print it out.
Tape your template to a cookie sheet or piece of cardboard.
Tape wax paper over the template.


 Melt your white chocolate and fill your decorating bag; snip off the tip.
Fill in the outline of one PEEPS bunny with the chocolate.
Immediately cover the bunny with a generous amount of sugar.
Gently pat the sugar down with the flat side of a butter knife.
Repeat, then remove the excess sugar before starting another color.

See how my pink bunnies are different colors?
I tried using pink candy melts,
but decided I prefer the lighter color when using white chocolate.


After the bunnies have hardened, carefully peel them off the wax paper.
Melt a small amount of chocolate chips; put in a decorating bag.
Pipe eyes and noses on your bunnies.
Spread a thin layer of frosting on the back of each PEEPS bunny,
and arrange them around a frosted cake.

Ooh, I just love these little guys!


YUM!

  1. Your cake is so festive, colorful and sweet. I'd love to have that on my table for Easter. How did you keep the different colors of sugar from getting on the Peeps next to them? You must have a very steady hand. I'm sure I'd have to separate them:)

  9. One of my favorite way to use peeps is in hot chocolate. I always get great smiles from my family when they get a peep floating in their hot chocolate, especially through the winter holidays!
