Peeps-Cupcakes-Recipe1Peep Cupcakes

For this delicious dessert, you’ll need to bake some cupcakes. Using a white box cake mix is the easiest way to go. White cupcake liners will make the best background for these cute desserts.

After your cupcakes have been baked and cooled, you’ll need vanilla frosting, green food coloring, a pastry bag, and a Wilton Grass Tip. Mix a few drops of green food coloring into the vanilla frosting. Keep adding a few drops until you get the desired color. Then insert your frosting into your pastry bag (with grass tip already attached) and start frosting!

After you’ve frosted your cupcakes, gently separate your peeps so they are each a single peep. Then poke each one with a toothpick (as pictured below).

Enjoy!

Peeps- Dirt Cups!

Peeps-In-the-Dirt-Pudding-Cups-with-OREO-Dirt_-Quick-and-Easy-Easter-Dessert-Peeps-Easter-Pudding-Oreos--678x1024For this kid pleasing snack, you’ll need chocolate pudding cups, Oreos, Peeps, orange Starbursts, and green Rips candy.
The first step is to form your “candy carrots”. Soften your Starbursts by microwaving them for a few seconds. Be very carefully – don’t over soften them! The Starbursts will be easy to mold into the desired shape after warmed up. Then cut your Starbursts in half. Flatten the top of one end and shape the other end into a point. On the flattened end, add a few pieces of the Rips candy and then squish the Starburst around the candy. Roll on the table to get a smoother surface (as pictured).

Then open your pudding cups and put it all together: one Peep in the middle of each cup, sprinkle the crushed Oreos around the Peep, add the candy carrots, and Voila! Enjoy!
