Tasty Tuesday – Sweet Peeps!

Welcome to Tasty Tuesday for this Sweet Peeps Extravaganza! We went a little crazy with the Peeps around here this week. I think I’ve had my share of sugar for awhile, and even the kids aren’t asking for more right now.

First, we made these cute little chick cupcakes! We don’t eat coconut around here, but how else can you make a nest? Maybe pretzels or something. We gave some of these to the neighbors and the “hot dog lady” at the park. They look good, but ya gotta like coconut!

Check out this cake…

Then we tried a little cupcake with eggs…

Then we moved on to dip bunnies and chicks in melted chocolate and sprinkles.

Ours didn’t turn out quite like these…we were a little heavy on the chocolate and the sprinkles, but they tasted great!

This really wasn’t the look I was hoping for, but it was fun! My boys put some in the freezer and tried them frozen. It got two thumbs up from them.

Check out yesterday’s post about….Peeps! Yes, there’s more! I found cute crafts, games, AND CHINA!

Here’s a few Peeps Marshmallow facts for you to share with your families…

  • It takes six minutes to make one Peeps chick.
  • Original Peeps have a shelf life of two years. {I’m not sure that’s good!!!}
  • More than 5 million Peeps are produced each day. {Can that be right?}
  • Peeps have been the most popular nonchocolate Easter candy in the United States for more than a decade. {Not jelly beans!}

Now, for the recipes on the beautiful cake and the pretty dipped bunnies, just stop by the official website for Peeps.

We all had loads of fun getting ready for Tasty Tuesday this week. Take a little time and mess up your kitchen like I did…It was worth it!

  1. Peeps Rock! Peep Cuteness Rules! Here a peep, there a peep, everywhere a peep peep (can you tell I’m tired and on a sugar high?!). I do love peeps. The chocolate covered ones look so tasty..and since they have a shelf life of two years they should be included in an emergency food kit…right? Thanks for sharing such cheer. : )

  2. How very cute! I simply adored Peeps as a little girl. These days, I usually eat about one a season. ;) But they still just “scream” Easter to me and a basket just wouldn’t be the same without them, that’s for sure!

  3. I like the idea of dipping the peeps in chocolate. My kids are crazy for peeps and always have been. One year the peeps were almost sold out! I was sweating bullets because I know they’d never get over it if there were no peeps at Easter time. Luckily, I found a display of peeps in a different part of the store from all the other candy. I quickly bought 6 packages ( 2 apiece for each kid). I was happy!

  6. It’s not green but I use chow mein noodles for my nests. The only problem with them is that they lose their crunch after they meet icing if they sit too long, which I guess can be a good thing for people who don’t want crunchies in the cupcakes.
