Homemade Peeps
1 ( ¼-ounce) envelope powdered unflavored gelatin ¾ cup water, divided 1 cup granulated sugar, plus 1 ½ cups for coating ¼ cup light corn syrup ½ teaspoon vanilla extract 1 ounce milk chocolate or semisweet chocolate chips, a scant ¼ cup Vegetable shortening (for bunnies) Line a large rimmed baking sheet with waxed paper and shake a thin, even layer of granulated sugar across the waxed paper. Sprinkle the gelatin evenly over ¼ cup water in the bowl of a stand mixer. Don’t bother to whisk; the gelatin will absorb the liquid on its own.
