Last year, I posted Baby Peeps.
Obviously, my creative apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
Because this year I made Baby Chicks.
I was particularly proud of the Baby Peeps recipe last year, because it was the first recipe to ever get featured by any party. Allison, from Alli ‘n Sons featured it after a Sweet Tooth Friday linky. She stumbled it and got so many hits. I was smiling for days.
And I thought, hmmm. Those kinda look like baby chicks. (If baby chicks are small, round, and filled with peanut butter.)
Then I asked myself, what should I do with baby chicks?
Well, stuff them in eggs, of course.
First, you need to make your baby chicks. Dip your Nutters (or mini Oreos) in yellow candy melts. Let them harden, then melt some orange candy melts and pipe on beaks.
Then pipe some feet and stand your chick up on them.
Then you need to make your eggs. I use a mold I bought at An Occasional Chocolate, but I saw some silicone ones at Target last week.
Spread around your chocolate and let it harden.
Once you have all your shells, put your chicks inside.
Add some more candy around the edges.
And seal them up. (I wonder if they feel like they’re in a coffin? That’s kinda cruel. Must go liberate the ones in the fridge…)
So now I guess that stuffing food animals in eggs at Easter is my thing.
I hope you don’t mind.
Maybe next year I’ll stuff a cat in there. You know, to throw you off course.
