Easter comes early this year and PEEPS® are out in force! A few days ago I grabbed some Bubble Gum and Blue Raspberry Peeps Chicks to make a PEEPS Bubble Gum Easter Sundae. I wanted to do a test run before releasing the kids to make their own.
Let’s face it – Peeps is all about fun! I can’t help but smile every time I see one of these little marshmallow chicks or bunnies. The colors, the flavors, the bold packaging – it all screams spring is almost here and Easter is right around the corner.
I guess you know by now that spring and summer are my favorite seasons, so when PEEPS arrive, I know warm weather is only a few weeks away.
I wanted to create a fun Peeps dessert for the family. Since waffle bowls look a little like bird’s nests, I thought they would be great to hold my Peeps creation.
I dipped the waffle bowls in melted chocolate. After letting the excess chocolate drip off, I dipped them in pink sprinkles. I was tempted to let the chocolate drip into my mouth, but I held myself back.
Helpful Hint: Waffle Bowls can be fragile, so handle gently.
After the chocolate dried, I added scoops of vanilla ice cream, cotton candy and Peeps Chicks. I had to hide the cotton candy from my 20-something-year-old son. He loves that stuff.
You can drizzle with chocolate or caramel sauce before serving, but I think these are perfect just the way they are. What could be easier?
- Waffle Bowls
- Peeps Bubble Gum Chicks
- Peeps Blue Raspberry Chicks
- Vanilla Ice Cream
- Cotton Candy (I used Cherry Berry and Blue Raz & Lemon)
- Chocolate Candy Coating (Candiquik)
- Melt chocolate according to microwave instructions.
- Carefully dip waffle bowl rims into chocolate and let excess drip off.
- Dip waffle bowl rims into sprinkles and let dry completely.
- Scoop vanilla ice cream into waffle bowls and top with cotton candy. Add a Peeps Chick.
The grandkids are going to love this special Easter creation. I can’t wait to see what they’ll come up with when they make their own PEEPS Cotton Candy Easter Sundaes.
