More fun with Peeps


I found  a few more recipes and chose my favorites to share.  I got all of these from babble.  After sharing on Facebook that I love stale peeps and a friend told me to try Peeps Smores I had to share this recipe I found:

Bunnylicious Peeps S’mores

It’s only natural that you’d take marshmallows of any kind and try to toast them. Marshmallow = toasted, right? They are synonymous. I’ve thought so my whole life. I distinctly remember toasting marshmallows on wood skewers over the stove when my mom wasn’t around in the middle of winter. (Note: My mommy never taught me not to play with the stove.)

I did, therefore, put Peeps under the broiler today. This is the natural progression. First the chocolate came out, and the next thing you know, Peeps s’mores are served.

Peeps S’mores

4 graham cracker squares
1 chocolate bar, broken into 4 equal pieces
4 Peeps

Turn the broiler on high. On a baking sheet lay out the graham cracker squares. Top with chocolate pieces and then place a Peep on the very top. Put the baking sheet under the broiler for 1-3 minutes, just until the tops of the Peeps start to brown and the Peeps are nice and puffy. Remove from the oven and allow to sit for a minute or two. Enjoy.

Makes 4 Peeps s’mores.

MIX IT UP: Place chocolate-dipped Peeps on graham crackers and allow to set for a portable s’more on a stick.

Another fun recipe I found was this Sunflower cake.  Im tempted to make it for my husbands birthday cake but Im not sure he will appreciate it as much as my daughter will.

Brighten up your Easter Celebration with a Peeps Sunflower Cake

Peep Sunflower Cake1 Brighten up your Easter Celebration with a Peeps Sunflower Cake

Peeps are everywhere right now and in every color imaginable. So while they’re here, I’m enjoying finding fun ways to use them {did you see our PEEP STUFFED BROWNIES} What better way than a Peep Sunflower Cake? It’s bright, happy and sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face. This is a quick and easy dessert that even the kids can decorate on their own.

I made a mini version by using  4″ spring form pans, pictured above {and then just baked extra cupcakes for the kids with the leftover batter}, but you can easily make this in a regular sized cake pan for a more dramatic presentation.

You can choose whatever flavor cake you prefer. I went with a Devil’s Food, cut the cakes in half, and then spread homemade LEMON CURD between the layers for a special surprise.

Peeps Sunflower Cake
What you’ll need:
1 box cake mix {flavor of your choice, plus ingredients to make cake}
2 containers of chocolate frosting
chocolate chips {enough to fill center of cake, I used a combination of regular sized and mini chocolate chips}
2 packages of yellow peeps

What to do:
1. Bake cake{s} according to package directions. Allow to cool completely.

2. Place bottom layer onto serving tray, spread a layer of icing on top. Top with second layer of cake. Continue icing until cake is complete.

3. Arrange peeps around the edge of the bottom layer. Place chocolate chips in center in circular pattern.

If you have a fun recipe to share with Peeps please do so in your comment! Love to hear ideas.
