I have recently fallen in love with the food blog, Love From The Oven. This baking blog is absolutely adorable – and so are their Peep-themed treats. These sprinkled marshmallows have been turned into some sweet confections, perfect for the spring/Easter season.
After fawning over Love From The Oven’s Peep Week, I was inspired to find a few Peep-themed recipes from Taste of Home. If you love Peeps, and you’re looking for some fun goodies to make for the season, be sure to try these two Peep-tastic recipes.
2 packages (10 to 12 ounces each) white baking chips
1 package (10 ounces) pretzel sticks
25 yellow chicks Peeps candy
1 package (12 ounces) M&M’s eggs or other egg-shaped candy
In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt white chips; stir until smooth. Set aside 1/2 cup for decorating.
Add pretzel sticks to remaining chips; stir until coated. Scoop a small amount of mixture onto waxed paper; shape into a nest using two forks. Repeat, forming 25 nests. Dip bottom of Peep into reserved white chips; place in a nest. Add eggs to nests, securing with white chips. Repeat. Let stand until set. Yield: 25 servings.
1 package (10-1/2 ounces) miniature marshmallows
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon water
4 drops green food coloring
1-1/2 cups flaked coconut
6 cups Corn Pops
1/2 cup jelly beans
In a large saucepan, combine marshmallows and butter. Cook and stir over low heat until melted and smooth. Meanwhile, in a small resealable plastic bag, combine water and food coloring. Add coconut; seal bag and shake to tint. Set aside.
Place the cereal in a large bowl; add marshmallow mixture and stir until combined. Press into greased muffin cups. Let stand until serving. Remove nests from cups; top with tinted coconut, jelly beans and Peeps. Yield: 16 servings.
