Looking for a recipe? What about a fabulous edible centerpiece for your Sunday Dinner? In honor of Peeps week, food bloggers & Pinterest “Pinners” are posting/pinning tons of fabulous recipes & decorating ideas to help make your Easter unforgettable.
We’re sharing our favorites with you…
It can be as simple as buying a cake at the store and using your imagination when it comes to the decorations…
Do you want to bring something that looks great and didn’t really take you much time to make?
CHOCOLATE DIPPED PEEPS
Then consider dipping your peeps in a little melted chocolate and then sprinkles. We’ve found that the chocolate ” bark” works great.
BIRD IN A NEST
Who doesn’t love RICE KRISPIE TREATS? Use the recipe on the box of Rice Krispies, divide & place rice krispie mix into muffin pan to form the nest (should make 15), and then top with the round pastel candy of your choice; jelly bean or M & M’s and top with a peep. You will probably want to press them down a little to secure them.
EASTER BUNNY RACING CARS
Another fabulous low maintenence sweet treat that will make you look like a “rock star” amonst all the kids in the family. All you need is; Large Marshmallows, cut horizontally, Bunny Peeps®, Mini pretzels, Twinkies or another Cream-Filled Cake of your choice, decorator icing, Frosting & Sprinkles.
Cut a small rectangle out of the top of the cream-filled cake about a third of the way back from the “front” of the car. Use the white decorator icing to adhere the bunny Peep®, mini pretzel “steering wheel” and large marshmallows in place.Use frosting and sprinkles to decorate your car. Allow to set.
All you need; Styrofoam Cone: 9” x 5” cone, PEEPS: 20 – 22 blue; 18 purple; 10 green; and 2 yellow, (you pick your favorite colors), Low temp glue gun (I’m going to test using toothpicks so that my “cone” will be edible)
Glue bunnies around cone in rows, starting at the bottom. Continue working up and around the cone till it’s covered. That’s it! (If you’re using chicks, glue down the bodies only and not the tails so that you can slightly overlap the next row and fill in some of the blank spots.) Idea from craftsncoffee.com.
