With Easter just a few days away and the arrival of a plethora of peeps, we thought we’d try a great recipe from one of our favorite blogs…How Sweet Eats
All you’ll need is a few of your favorite peeps. We chose Easter eggs, pink rabbits and yellow peeps. The yellow might even be considered vintage now…what with all the colors and shapes on trend now.
Then reach into your pantry and grab a bag of chocolate chips. We used semi-sweet because that’s what we had but feel free to mix or use milk, dark etc.
The only other item you will need is an oven proof skillet or dish. We used a pie plate because we were serving a smaller number of folks.
Now let your creativity shine…
Belles beware !!!
Now we have to admit, this where we ran into a wee bit of trouble. We put it under broiler and flames emerged within 30 seconds!!! And it wasn’t warm enough underneath…not exactly what we had hoped for.
Thankfully we are partial to burnt peeps and we can’t show a pic because we ate the top right off in mere seconds.
We re-peeped and it went in at 500 for a very few minutes and then we hit the broiler (one rack further down this time ) until gently browned, The teen belles entered en masse and inhaled giving their thumbs up of approval.
Full and original recipe Here
Here’s what we did:
The Belles Easter Peeps
2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
About 25 peeps
Graham crackers for dipping
Preheat oven to 500
Place chocolate chips in an oven proof skillet or pie plate
Dollop peanut butter over chips
Arrange peeps, and feel free to crowd them
Place in oven for about five minutes at 500 degrees to allow chocolate and peanut butter to melt
Now crank up the oven to broil and watch carefully and constantly!
Carefully remove and serve
Watch the belle-bunnies devour!

A few beauty secrets that models swear by…so why not belles???
Speaking of secrets….we love this multitasking revelation…especially since it involves pucker power…just sayin’…
A sandwich we are anxious to try….
How about some grown up cider…. it that time of year ….just sayin’
We sure wish this lady were still around…and we will most assuredly go to the movie!!
That’s all for now y’all…
Sangria…not your mother’s boxed Gallo wine, tired fruit and boatload of sugar here…heavens no! Fresh peaches, a few strawberries for color, a light simple syrup (because a belle has to watch her girlish figure) and a good bottle of champagne will have y’all making this reto bev that has become so very au courant.
We were recently staying at a belle pal’s beach house for a little r&r when, lo and behold, we made the thrilling discovery that we had just what we needed for a little sangria moment of our own!!
So we chopped up some farm fresh peaches and strawberries…..
Made a little simple syrup with equal parts sugar and water brought to a boil and reduced for a few minutes…..
After a cooling off period in the fridge , we spooned the glorious fruit concoction into our thirsty cocktail glasses and topped with fresh champagne…Voila!!
A beautiful cocktail to match the view!! By the by, these incredible bracelets are from Budha Girl. They are great reminders about intent, gratitude and being in the present. See our post here. We love the notion of mindful glamour, and who doesn’t need a gentle reminder to stop, breathe, and live in the moment?
So get creative, have fun, and put a little produce in your libation!!
