PEEPS Cotton Candy Easter Sundae

by Alli

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.

PEEPS Cotton Candy Sundaes

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.

PEEPS Cotton Candy Easter Sundaes

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.

PEEPS Cotton Candy Easter Sundae

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?

Bubble Gum PEEPS, Vanilla Ice Cream and Cotton Candy Nests

Bubble Gum PEEPS, Vanilla Ice Cream and Cotton Candy Nests

Ingredients

  • 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)
  • Sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Melt chocolate according to microwave instructions.
  2. Carefully dip waffle bowl rims into chocolate and let excess drip off.
  3. Dip waffle bowl rims into sprinkles and let dry completely.
  4. 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.

Yes, Peeps are all about fun and this is such a fun dessert! I like the waffle bowls with nothing in them but your Cotton Candy Easter Sandae looks so yummy and pretty too. I think I saw Peeps out before Christmas was even over. Fun giveaway! My favorite area to shop at Target is the seasonal spot in the back corner 🙂

Peeps are cute but they aren’t as sweet as regular marshmallows. I don’t buy them often (they are fun to put in the microwave). However, my boys would love this fun Easter treat.
