Disclosure: We were sent the products mentioned in order to do a fair review. For anyone that has never had a Peeps I think they are great, definitely full of sugar but can go with just about everything and make for great additions for the Easter Baskets.
It’s Easter weekend! WOo hoo! I love these little mini breaks I get with my kids and you all know it. So what better way to spend it then by making stuff. The kids and I got Peeps to review for this holiday weekend and when I say Peeps I am meaning every type that I can picture. I’ve included a list below. But here is something I had no clue they would come in so many different colors and now some are made with chocolate mousse. YUM! My favorite though is the big milk chocolate egg with a marshmallow yellow chick peep inside. Eeek!
Now of course I know many of you will be waking up Easter morning to discovering one, two or maybe a ton of Peeps in your children’s Easter Basket. Instead of just gobbling up I’m sure we can all come up with a few recipes to use those peeps in. My kids and I have been brainstorming and are going to do a few. I must be completely honest with you, I have always been a fan of the yellow chicks and I love opening up the package just a bit to dry them out. Yes, I’m that girl. I like my Peeps stale. Do you have a favorite way of eating them? Okay, here is what we got.

Talk about a dentists favorite holiday right? That’s okay with the proper dental hygiene this won’t be an issue. The kids and I are planning to make some Rice Krispy Treats and Peeps popcorn balls by melting a few peeps. I know the cruel, cruel world right? Another wanted to see if you can bake a marshmallow peep inside a biscuit. We will also try wrapping the Peeps dipped in milk chocolate into croissants and rolling them up to eat, we’ve done those before with marshmallows but not peeps so we’ll see how it goes. Can you think of some more ways we can use the Peeps? Do you remember fun times with Peeps? I’m sure some of you have memories from when you were younger. I mean I can remember how excited I’d get seeing those Peeps in my basket and I couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into them. Okay, well I liked them hard and not soft and loved the fact it was full of sugar.
BalletGirl (age 13) wants to try a Peep war in the microwave. Now I’ve only heard them talk about it so I will be looking it up but I know they are excited. I’m picturing a big mess but thankfully they will be on graham crackers during this war. Any ideas? I will post the recipes we used throughout the weekend and possibly during the next week. Before you go, if you plan on picking up some peeps there is a showcase section at the Peeps website to show off your Peepsonality, don’t forget to submit your masterpieces.
