So I know, I did Valentine chocolates last year, but last year I didn’t have Valentine Peeps!!  And this year I do, and my family is happy.  As I’ve said before, Peeps and chocolate are ridiculously good.  Seriously one of my favorite confections.  Marshmallows are similar, but there is something special about the sugary texture of the Peep combined  with the snappy chocolate shell that makes music.  Rob loves them with bittersweet chocolate – it cuts the sweetness a bit while the rest of us like them sweet and yummy dipped in milk chocolate.  Actually Andy can go both ways.  I dressed them up with sprinkles and jimmies but they are just as good plain.  If you are up for tempering chocolate, find some Peeps and start the party.  These are perfect to tell those you love that you love them…or like them.  Be sure to treat yourself to one too.  Enjoy –

Go the the Halloween Peeps post to learn how to temper chocolate.  And also be sure to check out the bottom of the Valentine chocolates from last year that shows what happens if you don’t temper it.

Enjoy and happy Valentines day!
