Cake mix and frosting of choice, pudding, pie, or other dessert
Peeps marshmallow rabbits (or others with flat backs)
Sure, go ahead and have the traditional ham, potato salad, and deviled eggs for Easter, but what’s wrong with adding something new to the holiday menu this year? There is a huge variety of cakes, pies, and other desserts, that would be delicious on Easter Sunday. And, to make sure each dessert has a theme for the holiday, use scrumptious marshmallow Peeps. They’re colorful, adorable, and they add a true Easter theme to this year’s desserts.
A Peeps cake is as easy to make as a regular cake. A round cake is a nice choice but you could also use a two-layer square cake, or even a rectangular cake. Bake any flavor of cake and use any kind of frosting. For a two-layer cake – round or square – line Peeps up all around the sides. Simply press the marshmallow treats into the frosting around the cake. For a rectangular cake, make a Peeps arrangement on top of the cake. The best Peeps for any cake are the ones that are flat on the back, such as the bunnies.
An ordinary cake turns into an Easter treat when you add Peeps to it, sure. But there are other cakes that you can make for the holiday. For example, a Peeps bundt cake looks much different than a two-layer or rectangular cake. By the same token, a tiered cake – or even a cheesecake – has a different design than the other cakes.
A Peeps pie is also a delicious choice for an Easter dessert. A good pie to make is a pudding pie, such as chocolate, or banana cream. Meringue-topped pies look and taste delicious when you lay flat-back Peeps marshmallows on them. Create an arrangement where there is one Peeps character on each piece of pie (8 total).
Make brownies and put a Peeps marshmallow on each. Do the same with cookies. Simply lay the Peeps on a hot dessert so that it sticks. Peeps can turn other desserts into Easter treats, too, like fruit bars, snack cakes, cupcakes, Rice Krispie treats, and pudding.
The Peeps marshmallow characters instantly change a regular dessert into an Easter masterpiece and add that extra touch of decadent marshmallow. Go ahead and make the traditional foods that you lovingly fix for Easter but add a delicious dessert that’s colorful, easy to make, and sweet as, well, pie. A Peeps dessert is the perfect choice and you’re the creator!
