When you are making these chocolate covered peeps, I find they work best if you open the package the day before you plan to make them, this way they harden a little bit. If you are making these last minute, then you can pop them in the freezer as well. If you are like my mom and I then you like to open the package and let them harden before enjoying them anyway.
These Chocolate Covered Marshmallow bunnies only need 4 ingredients; marshmallow peeps, melting chocolate, shortening and mini marshmallows.
If you have never used melting chocolate, there are two different ways you can do it. In a large microwave safe bowl add your chocolate and microwave it for 30 seconds at a time in the microwave until it is fully melted. The other option is to use a double boiler, you can find all the directions for How to melt chocolate in a double boiler, if you are stuck on how to do it. It is really simple to do, and I prefer melting chocolate with a double boiler over using the microwave because I have more control over it.
