I originally shared a couple pictures of these peeps pops with you a year ago. But now I am going to share with you how I made them!
They were, of course, inspired by bakerella. She is the Queen of Cake Pops.
And if I am being totally honest I will tell you…. I do not find cake pops easy. I had to work to get them just right.
My hats of to you cake pops people. You are talented and patient and creative.
Start out by making the cake pops as you normally would, but instead of a round ball, form them into ‘egg’ shapes. Once you have made all your eggs, place them on a pan and pop them in the freezer to set up.
After your pops are st up nicely, prepare some melted chocolate to dip them in.
I mean, that is what normal sane cake pop makers do. I struggled with this step. So I heated up a can of Betty Crockers classic white frosting in the microwave and dipped the pops in that.
To get the Peep head, just snip off the top of a Peep with a scissors. DONT FREAK OUT. The peep will be OK. I mean, I am pretty sure he will be happy on his new home.
Then, while the frosting is still wet, attach the head by holding it gently but firmly against the cake pop for 30 seconds or so.
Gently set pop in safe place to dry. I stuck my pops into a piece Styrofoam to dry, but I inserted them at a 45-degree angle to keep the Peep heads from sliding off.
Once the cake pop has dried, you’re left with the cutest little Peep, “peeping” his head out!
But. If you are weird like me you can take in one step further.
Its Peep Butt.
Er… Happy Easter. 😉
