Peep Show: Adorable & Creative Sweet Marshmallow Treats for Easter

Peeps chicks and bunnies are the quintessential Easter candy. Not only are they delightful fluffy balls of pure sugar, but they also come in a variety of cute pastel colors. So naturally, they make the perfect edible craft ingredient.

Eating Peeps right out of the package is all fine and dandy, but their adorable shape (bunnies and chickies!) and bright colors are just too fun to pass up in a craft. 

Dressing Peeps up with sprinkles, icing, placing them on top of cupcakes or on a cake pop are all fun and easy ways to make some creative Easter treats. And the best part is, you can make these treats with your kiddos! They'll love playing with the Peeps and decorating fun crafts -- that they can eat!

Take a look at some of our favorite edible Peep crafts, and get inspired to get your hands sticky this Easter season.
