Hate to peel little pearl onions? Try this: Boil a pot of water. While waiting for it to boil, cut a bit off the top and bottom (root end) of each onion. Drop onions in the boiling water and blanch for just 2 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Then, simply squeeze and the peeled onion will pop out slick as a whistle.

You can try this technique: place the onion on its side, and very thinly slice off the root & tip of the onion from either side. then place the onion on its flat base. cut it in half, vertically. Now take one half, and gently pull the peel off. If you find it difficult, try the last part (peeling) under running water. then repeat with other half.
