There’s noth­ing cuter than a PEEPS Pop. Many afi­ciona­dos think that PEEPS taste best frozen—cold and creamy, and a bit chewy. These Bun­nies are dipped in choco­late and rolled in coconut or chopped nuts, mak­ing them the ulti­mate frozen treat.

6 ounces semi­sweet choco­late, chopped
1/2 cup sweet­ened shred­ded coconut or 1/2 cup peanuts (about 2 ounces), finely chopped
12 wooden craft sticks, avail­able at candy-making–supply stores
12 PEEPS® Bun­nies, any color

1. Line a bak­ing sheet with wax paper.
2. Place the choco­late in a heat­proof bowl set over a pan of barely sim­mer­ing water. Stir occa­sion­ally until melted and smooth.
3. Place the coconut or nuts on a plate.
4. Insert 1 craft stick about halfway into the bot­tom sec­tion of 1 Bunny. Dip into the choco­late, turn­ing to coat com­pletely. Hold­ing the dipped Bunny over the bowl of choco­late, use a knife to scrape the excess choco­late off the back and bot­tom of the Bunny, let­ting it fall back into the bowl. Hold the Bunny over the plate of coconut or nuts and sprin­kle to cover all sides.
5. Place the Bunny on the pre­pared bak­ing sheet and repeat to dip the remain­ing Bun­nies. Freeze until firm, about 30 min­utes. Serve frozen. PEEP­Si­cles can be stored in an air­tight con­tainer in the freezer for up to 1 week.
