I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the only thing better than a PEEP is a chocolate dipped PEEP. The marshmallow and sugar makes for the perfect sweet treat. Every year PEEPs make a big appearance in Easter baskets.
We don’t go all out with Easter baskets but instead give some candy and usually one small toy or sorts. As the little man just keeps getting older his little toy has evolved into a book or a CD.
But the one thing that doesn’t change from year to year is the inclusion of PEEPs in our Easter baskets.
Long gone though are the days of pastel colored chicks and rabbits. PEEPs have now expanded into all sorts of fun colors and flavors. Just check out some of the fun flavors available this Easter:
PEEPS® Orange Delight Flavored Marshmallow Dipped in Orange Fudge: These three
Chicks are orange delight flavored and dipped in orange fudge to enhance the flavor.
PEEPS® Party Cake Flavored Marshmallow Chicks: Ten delicious vanilla cake flavored
marshmallow chicks sprinkled with fun rainbow confetti.
PEEPS® Sour Watermelon Flavored Marshmallow Chicks: Sweet and sour flavors collide
to create a burst of watermelon in these ten green chicks with a blush pink center.
PEEPS® Chocolate Dipped Mousse Flavored Marshmallow Chicks: Three delectable
chocolate mousse-flavored Chicks dipped in either creamy milk or dark chocolate.
These fun flavors as well as the classic PEEPs will be split up among the kids this year for Easter. Kimberly at She Scribes created this adorable Easter basket using PEEPs as the actual basket.
I love the way this turned out. Just click on the photo for the full instructions.
But I decided to go another way. Instead of an Easter basket, I wanted to make an Easy Easter Centerpiece.
What you need:
1 clear glass vase
1 package of PEEPS
1 bouquet of flowers
hot glue gun
Polyurethane Aerosol Spray
Follow the directions on the can of polyurethane and spray the PEEPS on both sides. Allow to dry fully.
One dry, use hot glue to attach PEEPS around the bottom of the vase.
Fill with flowers and water and display. It really is that easy.
You can add anything extra to the vase that you want. I found some cute glitter green eggs on sticks with ribbon on them. I added those to the flowers for some more color.
Just like that I have an adorable but easy Easter centerpiece that brightens up our table.
