Laurie and I were shopping the after Christmas sales and found an adorable Wilton Peeps Bunny mold at Joann’s. Although we thought it odd that there was Easter stuff right after Christmas, we snapped it up. We ended up making these Homemade Peeps Chocolate Crackle Candy. It was so easy to do. They look adorable. They taste great. And they are going to be a hit in my daughter’s Easter Basket.
How to Make Homemade Peeps Chocolate Crackle Candy
You will need:
- Wilton Candy Melts in Spring Colors (We used Bright Pink. Yellow, Blue, Bright White)
- Rice Krispie Cereal
- Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Melting Wafers
- Wilton Peeps Bunny Mold
We used Wilton Candy melts as the first layer of our Homemade Peeps Chocolate Crackle Candy. We made the candy in Blue, Pink, Yellow and Purple. We added a couple of Bright White Candy Melts into the Yellow to make a more pastel yellow color. And we made a pretty pastel purple by melting pink and blue candy melts together.
This is our Wilton Peeps Bunny Treat Mold. We found this Joann’s Fabric and Crafting Store. But here it is on Amazon. This is a great mold. We used it for a couple of other fun Easter Treats – our Rice Krispie Treat Easter Bunny Peeps and our Peeps Sugar Cookies.
We used 4 Wilton Candy Melts for each Peeps candy. You can see in the picture above how we layered the candy melts in the peeps mold. We filled all of the peeps molds and melted them in the microwave 20 seconds at a time until the candy melts were fully melted.
This is what the candy melts looks like after they came out of the microwave.
Next we added a layer of Rice Krispie Cereal on top of the candy melt layer.
Finally, we added a third layer of melted Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Melting Wafers over the Rice Krispie Treats. Allow the candy to harden. And pop the Homemade Peeps Chocolate Crackle Candy out of the Peeps mold. It is that easy.
These Homemade Peeps Chocolate Crackle Candy are so adorable and oh my gosh do these candies taste great. The crunch from the Rice Krispie Treats really takes this to the next level. Yum yum yum!
We made Yellow, Pink, Blue and Purple Homemade Chocolate Crackly Candies. They are going to look great in Allison’s Easter Basket!
And they look exactly like a Marshmallow Peep! So adorable.
We love how these Homemade Peeps Chocolate Crackle Candy turned out. So pretty in these springtime colors. And boy do they test great. They will be a great Easter treat that your family will love.
