Sweet Treats: Peeps Dumplings

IMAG0297

Today, I found myself with a few little ingredient odds and ends at hand.

Included: Peeps, pie crust, tinted coconut.

And so I thought...why not engage in a little Peeps Torture? After all, this a documented fun activity. Who hasn't enjoyed a little Easter-time Peeps torture? 

And so, I cut out scraps of pie crust in a size about 5 inches by 5 inches.

On top of it, I laid a little bed of tinted coconut.

And then I put a Peep on top of that...like putting it on a little nest.

And then I gathered the crust and sort of "tented" it around the peep. Like a little bed!

Is it just me, or does Peep #2 look a little concerned?

Well, he had good reason for concern. He was next to be put into a bed. A forever bed.

and then...I put these little dumplings in the oven. And then...

Aaaaaah!

Here's how to make this magic happen at home.

Peeps Dumplings

Ingredients

  • Pie crust scraps (enough to roll back out to about 5x5 inches)
  • As many Peeps as you have pie scrap pieces
  • shredded coconut 
  • Chocolate chips or chocolate pieces (I didn't to this but think it would taste good so I am suggesting it here)

Procedure

  1. Place one Peep and whichever fillings you'd like on the center of each piece of pie crust.
  2. Form a little "tent" around the peep, making sure to seal the top off to prevent oozing.
  3. Bake at 400 degrees for 7-10 minutes, or until it starts to brown.
  4. Let cool, but serve still slightly warm.
