Hula Bunny PEEPS and a Spring Hop Along PEEPS Party!!


Yay! It's PEEPS season! If you follow the blog or my posts at all you probably know I'm all about PEEPS.  Totally LOVE 'EM! Last year I had an entire week of PEEPS Pops including PEEPS dressed up as The Beatles, The Sesame Street GangKISS, Some famous Art Work, The AvengersBaseball Players, Where the Wild Things Are and this year some Mickey and Minnie PEEPS Pops, and of course the Star Wars PEEPS Troopers!  You can say I kinda have a thing for Marshmallow PEEPS!

And this year a bunch of crazy bloggers agreed to do a Spring Hop Along PEEPS Party where everyone created a unique treat with PEEPS as a theme.  I know crazy, right? Well if crazy means super fun and awesome, then it's crazy! 

This year I definitely had some trouble coming up with a fun idea.  I had a couple and they just didn't pan out right, but then tried these hula bunnies!


Start with a square pretzel as a base and I used PEEPS bunnies (I like them better than the chicks for whatever weird reason).  Attach to pretzel with some candy melt or melted chocolate.  Then add a grass skirt with some more green candy melt (I put the wafers into a zip lock baggie, melt in the microwave, then snip a small end off and pipe on).  Use brown to do a belt on top of the grass skirt.  Add a "coconut top".  This is just some plain m and m's attached with more melted candy.  I wanted all brown to be more like coconuts, but apparently there are very few brown m n' m's in a single pack these days, so I used the other colors too, which I think work well with these colorful Hula PEEPS!


 You can make them alone, or add them to your favorite cupcakes or treat too! They'd be great for a luau or Hawaiian themed party!  I really had fun with these, especially the ties in the back for the coconut m and m tops!


The tiny bunny arms are some non-pareil sprinkles.  Add a candy melt/sprinkle flower to the ears and you have yourself some hula bunnies!


I really like how these came out and the little flower really pulls it together!

  24. The way I love to eat peeps is to open the package and let them sit around for a couple of days so that they get kinda hard or a little stale and then eat them. LOL I think they are the best when they are kind of hard on the outsive YUM.
