If you ask me some things that remind me of Easter, I would probably say fancy hats, egg hunts and PEEPS! I mean, doesn’t the Easter Bunny deliver those marshmallow-y chicken shaped PEEPS to every little girl and boy on the Eve of Easter? For many years, I have received PEEPS in my basket, but I had no idea that the product line, Just Born, includes many different products.
For the Holiday Season, I was asked to try the new PEEPS Chocolate Covered Mint Flavored Trees. Anything chocolate covered automatically gets my attention, so I was game. The trees arrived individually packaged which makes them great to stick in a stocking or for a class party. Both of my daughters immediately wanted to try them. My oldest daughter LOVED the mint flavor! My youngest ate all the chocolate off the marshmallow (that’s my kinda girl!).
Because New Orleans has been hit with a cold front, we have been consuming an unusual amount of hot chocolate in my home. In an effort to find more uses for the new product, as well as spice up the hot chocolate, I decided to make my own little concoction. I made a glass of hot chocolate and topped with a generous serving of whipped cream. I unwrapped a PEEP Chocolate Covered Mint Flavored Tree and let it float atop the cream until it began to dissolve. The mint flavor seeped into the hot chocolate and made a wonderful little creation!
Wondering what else you can do with these little trees? Check out the holiday recipe section! I personally want to try the PEEPS S’Mores!
