Homemade Peeps Easter Recipe

Oh Peeps, beautiful Peeps. I know some people have a deep dislike for them. But I like them. No, I love them. I’m a huge marshmallow fan and there is just something about biting into a yellow chick or pink bunny that feels like Easter to me. Yes, I know the real meaning of Easter but I still enjoy putting together a basket of goodies for W. So when Krista from Everyday Mom’s Meals broke out her homemade peeps, I was smiling.

I’m always on the hunt for easy craft and food ideas that I can do with W (and my future children). I love creating memories and doing activities together is a great way to build traditions. I love inviting my friends and their kids over to do activities and these homemade peeps marshmallow pops are perfect for a spring playdate!

While these might not be shaped like chicks and bunnies, that makes them even more versatile. You’re not just limited to Easter! You could make them for other holidays as well! How cute would they be in red, white, and blue?

    How long can these sit out for? I was thinking about using them as centerpieces and then letting the kids eat them after dinner.
