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. This is an old post I’m bringing back for the current staying at home situation.
Easter Dessert: Peeps N’ Egg Houses:
1 pkg. Graham Crackers
1 pkg. Edible Easter Grass
6-8 oz. Wilton Chocolate Melts, pink
1 pkg. Peeps Chicks
Easter Candy Eggs, chocolates or jelly beans
What You Do:
1 – First, break the graham crackers in half. You’ll need 5 halves for each chicken house.
2 – Next, 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 dessert that the kids can all help make! Lastly, enjoy!
Adorable Easter dessert fun!
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.
