We love our PEEPS!


PEEPS are everywhere this time of year....that sugary marshmallow treat is an American staple in Easter baskets. So we came up with a  couple of ideas for inexpensive classroom treats that won't break the bank and are super simple to put together.

 These bunny cupcakes are just way too adorable and super fun to create!
Get your class in the Easter mood with this delicious treat.


Supplies:
Cupcake
white frosting
1 large white Peep (Walmart: Sold 3 per container at $1.18)
Pink edible Easter Grass (Walmart)
Small round perils ( Hobby Lobby)
white pom poms
glue stick


Have students use kitchen scissors (sterilized) to cut the PEEP's ears off, I also sliced the ears to separate them a little. Frost cupcakes and add the white ears, add 3 strips of the edible grass for whiskers, and the round perils for a little nose and eyes.

Add a small white pom pom to the cupcake liner using a glue stick to add a little bunny tail.


These cupcakes are sure to be a crowd pleaser this Easter. So hop over to the store and grab some supplies to get started on your very own batch of bunny cupcakes.

If you are looking for an inexpensive treat for your PEEPS at school give these a try.
 PEEPS are just $1 at Walmart this time of year. Grab a few of your favorite colors and add them to a cellophane bag. Add the treat toppers below and you have a one of a kind treat that is perfect for this time of year.
