DIY Peeps Food

Here are some fun and easy treat tutorials that I used for our party yesterday....

Peep drinks I saw these chocolate dipped peeps at the grocery store and the idea just came to me! So I picked up some blue juice and clear cups. Pretty simple! I am sure that you could dip the bases of your own peeps if you cannot find the packaged ones. They worked out perfect and kept them afloat without sinking or flipping on their sides.

Peep bird nests
This was probably the easiest treat I have ever made! Chow Mien noodles, chocolate, Cadburry eggs and peeps! If you have never made these before, you can find the instructions online everywhere! Here is an easy one for example.
Peep Sugar Cookies
My dear friend from Lil G's Cookies made these for me, but she followed the full tutorial that is available here from the amazing Sweet Sugar Belle
Hatch a baby Peep
For this project you will need a bag of chocolate melts ( you can use Wilton, or semi sweet baking chips), peepe, edible grass, mini eggs, chocolate egg mold, clear cupcake boxes, Easter grass, ribbon, and a disposable decorating bag (or ziplock bag will work too).
You can find molds online, craft stores, or restaurant supply stores. I got a 4" size egg so I could fit a whole peep without cutting or smashing it. First melt your chocolate according to package directions. Fill both sides of the mold completely. Tap lightly on the counter to remove any air bubbles. Then pour out the excess chocolate, but be sure to make sure all sides of the mold are completely covered with chocolate and place in freezer to firm up. While chocolate is setting, brake up pieces of edible grass and break apart peeps. When chocolate has set up, gently turn out on counter top. Fill your decorating bag with extra chocolate and snip off the end Fill the bottom half of the egg with grass, a peep, and some mini eggs Then using your chocolate filled bag pipe chocolate around the edges and place top half on. Hold together firmly for about 30 seconds. Wipe off excess chocolate. You may have to use a knife to smooth out larger chunks. Fill your cupcake box (I got mine online here) with some grass (I also put in some smaller candies to add color), tie with ribbon and top with free printable tag found here. Kids get a fun little surprise when they break open their eggs!

I hope that this gives you all some fun ideas and help. Please feel free to comment with any thoughts or questions. Tomorrow I will be posting tutorials for the decorations so be sure to check back then. Thanks for stopping by!
