There are more here:

It looks to me like they are just encapsulated in casting resin - maybe dipped?  Can't tell exactly.  Mixing glitter into the resin is kind of fun.

Isn't there any way of making one without using the actual candy - it seems kinda gross.

Peeps are pretty much non perishable anyway, aren't they?  If you didn't want to use the candy you could probably carve the shape out of foam or something and paint it.

Floam may work.  It's little foam pellets you mix water with and sculpt.  I'm not sure how well it would hold up, but if you dipped it in resin, it'd probably do the trick.
