Are you like me and remember when the only Peeps available were yellow chicks? You have no idea how excited I was when there were enough options to have a color for each of my four kids!
Now, hooo mama, there aren’t just colors, there are flavored Peeps, Peeps dipped in chocolate, chocolate eggs, ginormous Peeps, etc. At this point, what couldn’t you do with peeps? Next year I’d like bite sized Peeps! hahaha
This year for Easter I decided to think outside the box, which doesn’t take much for me since I’m rarely outside of the box. Now, if you’ve spent ANY time on Pinterest you know there a some seriously creative people out there. I’m not one of them. I’m simple when it comes to going outside of my thinking box.
I started off with two boxes of cake mix and 3 various size round cake pans. I baked all three and let them cool. After they cooled, I frosted them with white cream cheese frosting. Then came the fun. I used Wilton spring colored sprinkles on the frosting.
Mom was around and she chimed in with color suggestions and started helping me place Peeps around the cake’s edge. It’s so fun doing this kind of stuff with the family!
After we finished with the triple layer cake, I made some massive cupcake muffins. I thought it’d be fun to try it with half of the chocolate bunny cooked inside the muffin. Well, that didn’t go quite as planned because the Peep bottom half made it’s way up to the top and baked out. That was ok, it just gave it a bit of melted chocolate.
After they cooled off, I did the same thing as we did with the cake. We added frosting, sprinkles, and the top half of the chocolate Peeps. These were little cakes that tasted completely scrumptious!
They were super fun to make as well as easy. Easter is here and if you’re still looking for a quick dessert, Peeps can help out in a jiffy! Not only that, you can’t go wrong with having Peeps just sitting around the house. They’re an Easter must-have!
