Spring is upon us, the weather is starting to show signs of warmer days ahead and Easter is just around the corner! In our home, as we prepare for that adorable bunny to make his presence known in our home, one thing I find to be a lot of fun is to find fun products and recipes that can help get everyone excited for both Spring and Easter! One such family of products that we find to be a tradition, not only for adding to the Easter baskets each year, but also to get for fun recipes for Spring and even Easter, is the Peeps. To get us started with the Peepin Fun this year, I was not only introduced to some great ideas on the Cookin With Peeps site, but we were also sent a great gift pack filled with a variety of those fun Peeps products! When my box of Peeps products arrived, it was a given that the Dark Chocolate Peepsters were put in there, just for me, or at least that is the way I see it. I mean with these Dark Chocolate Peepsters, a self proclaimed chocoholic like myself, can be in Peep Heaven, when I indulge on those dark chocolate covered marshmallow creme filled deliciousness, while I work on researching Peep projects for my kids and I to do!
Aside from the Peepsters, we found the variety of Peeps products that we can use for not only this years Easter baskets, but also for fun Spring projects, to be very impressive. From the original Peeps that can be found in both Bunny and Chick shapes in a variety of colors, to the different flavors that are available, which opens the door to many projects waiting to be made. One recipe idea that I really like and I know the kids will enjoy taking part in would be the Easy Peeps Cookies. To get started with this recipe, we can use either homemade or premade sugar cookies. If we choose to go the homemade route, then we will need to wait until the cookies are cooled before we decorate them. Then, once the cookies are cooled down, the kids and I can add green icing to the top of the cookies to make it look like grass, place a Peeps Chick on top and surround the Chicks with jelly beans, giving the cookies the look of sitting on a nest with eggs. I found this recipe along with many others to be fun ones to engage the kids in this season on the Peeps site! So, this year, as you prepare for Spring and Easter, be sure to head out and stock up on the different Peeps products, then head on over to the Peeps site and check out all of the great recipes and craft ideas. Well, to help with your decorating and Easter prep, the wonderful people from Peeps would like to send one of my amazing readers their own collection of Peeps products like I was sent!
