dr. seuss peep pops.....!



.....so i loves me a good mash-up!.....being a pinterest fanatic like so many others....there are always some good mash-ups over there....like these....muppet/superhero...or...dr. who/seuss...or....star wars/calvin and hobbs...or...pulp fiction/simpsons....the list goes on and on....!....love them all!

....this is a version of my own mash-up of some favs....dr. seuss in celebration of his birthday and the release of the lorax movie on march 2nd.....and marshmallow peeps!....because it's that time of year when you see them on the store shelves in so many pretty colors....peeps....you either love them or hate them....i am most definitely on the "love 'em" spectrum.....

...actually i've done peep pops before because they are so easy here....buy some peeps....dip in candy wafer/chocolate/almond bark (whatever is your hardening candy of choice)....and add some fun decorations.....and since we have some pretty serious star wars fans over here i mashed them it up with peeps ....and made some peep troopers too....!

....for these dr. seuss ones....you need some of these....


...edible food writers....i have a bunch in all shapes and sizes....and also some pics of the characters...or you can just use your dr seuss books if you have them.....then just draw on the coated peeps once they are dry.....the sneetch beak is a candy coated sunflower and horton's trunk is made with candy melt.....

....and you get a bunch of really fun dr seuss peep pops to celebrate the wonderful joy he's been bringing kids for ages!.....the lorax of course is probably my fav story (can't wait to see the movie!)....although it's hard to pick a fav....fox in socks was a fun one too....and the sneetches story is just great....i think my fav pop is the once-ler up in his lurkdom....i love how he came out!

....you could also use them as cupcake toppers as well....!


.....we also recently visited orlando's islands of adventure which has a dr seuss section (seuss landing)...which the kids absolutely loved!...if you have little one's (mine are 7 and 4 year old twins) and will be visiting orlando....definitely go there.....it's done very well....not to mention it has the wizarding world of harry potter too....majorly cool if you are a fan and want to get yourself a wand and some butter beer!

....happy happy birthday to dr seuss!....and thank YOU for stopping by.....have a very awesome week!...and let me know which seuss pop is your fav!
