Recipe Wednesday: Little "Bow" Peeps

         What do you get when you put a bow with a Peep?! 
                                 Little bow Peeps of course! 

Would you say Peeps are more fun to craft and decorate with or to eat? We would have to say, for us, they are funner to use in a crafty way that can be eaten. And since we are not big fans of eating Peeps ourselves, we have a lot of fun making something fun for others to eat.  We wonder if the makers of Peeps will ever make Peep crosses or lambs. That would be wonderful for this time of year!

We used the plain Peeps {not the ones already with chocolate}, chocolate chips, sprinkles, lollipop sticks, lollipop bags, and pre made bows.

After melting the chocolate, the Peeps took a little bath  in the chocolate. Some Peeps got sprinkles and some didn't.

After the chocolate set, we inserted the lollipop stick and got the Peeps ready for bows and bags.

                              Peeps just waiting for the next step in the process.

Now here is where the Peep goes from just being a Peep, and where it becomes a "Little Bow Peep!" 

                                   Sitting pretty in bowl for sharing with others.

                                              Or maybe placing in an Easter basket.

                            Maybe at each Easter dinner place setting would be nice.

How will you be using Peeps this Easter? Be inspired, get creative!

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from Your presence,
And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.
Psalm 51:10-11
