Peeps N’ Egg Houses Easter Treats

These Peeps N’ Egg Houses Easter Treats are pretty much as adorable and as fun as it gets. And they're easy to make! Make them with your kids, or maybe have the Easter Bunny leave them! The sky is the limit with Easter fun.

No matter where you stand with Peeps, I think there’s something we can all agree on.

They are an iconic symbol of spring! AND, they’re super fun to play around with. I think it must skip a generation because my mom LOVES Peeps, I wouldn’t eat them unless you paid me, and Scarlet loves Peeps. Des does not. As far as I know, Cassidy has never had one in his life! I might be wrong, but we’re a 1 out of 4 family for eating them, and a 4 out of 4 family for playing with them. They’re really magical that way. You can make these for your kids, or you can make them with your kids.

If you’re feeling really enterprising, you can leave them on the table and give the Easter Bunny the credit.

Easter treats

What’s Needed:

1 pkg. Graham Crackers
1 pkg. Edible Easter Grass
1 pkg. Peeps Chicks
6-8 oz. Wilton Chocolate Melts, pink
Easter Candy Eggs, chocolates or jelly beans

What You Do:

1 – Break the graham crackers in half. You’ll need 5 halves for each chicken house.

2 – Melt the chocolate melts according to package directions and put it in a small plastic bag or piping bag.

3 – Lay a graham cracker half down and pipe a line of chocolate on each side of a graham cracker half. Stand a graham cracker half up on each line of chocolate. Hold them until the chocolate sets, about a minute or so.

4 – Now pipe a line of chocolate on top of the two graham crackers that are standing up. Then take 2 more halves and place each one on the chocolate and bend them towards each other so they touch at the top like a roof peak. Hold them for a minute or two. Then pipe a thick line of chocolate right on the crack where the two roof sides meet at the peak. Let this set for 3-4 minutes.

5 – Now put some of the edible grass into each chicken house that you made. Set a peep chick in each one. Add a couple of Easter candy eggs around on the grass in each chicken house.

6 – This is clearly a cute and fun treat for Easter that the kids can all help make! Enjoy!

And.. that’s about as cute as it gets by 8:00am on a gloomy Sprinter morning. Third Winter morning. Mud Season morning. Narnia morning. I don’t even know what to call it but I know that I needed to post something cute and colorful and cheerful, because honestly, how could anyone resist these? They make me want to eat Peeps. They make me want to be a better person. And although I have trouble with the transitions of seasons, there’s something about Easter cheer that has caught me by the heart since the 1980’s. And I love that my kids still see all of the magic of the holiday, and that makes me feel the same way. So really – make these Peeps N’ Egg Houses Easter Treats – because they are so adorable and uplifting.

  1. Too cute! Pinned of course. Back when I started blogging a few years ago someone left a printed copy for a craft like this on my doorstep. Never found out who it was, and I tried to make it, but the 3 year old kept knocking the walls down. Kids….. I think the chocolate would work well to solve that problem.

  2. We love our Peeps, so we’ll have to make these. Well, my husband and son don’t like Peeps. But Natalie and I eat many of them!
