Edible Peeps Houses

When I looked outside this morning I saw something I haven’t seen in about 2 or 3 months, sunshine! What a beautiful site! The sunshine got me in the mood to make a fun Easter Project to share with all of you! My daughters absolute favorite Easter (or really, any other time of year) candy are Peeps! What’s not to love about a sugar covered marshmallow in cute little shapes right!?

So over the weekend we made these super cute Edible Easter Peeps Houses that would be perfect for a fun and easy Easter Project to make with your kids. My daughter had a great time making (and eating) her Peeps House! Lets check out how to make it:

Here is how to make these DIY Edible Easter Peeps Houses:

You Will Need:

  • Peeps!
  • Gram Crackers
  • Frosting
  • chocolate (or jellybean) eggs
  • Shredded Coconut
  • Green food coloring

First, you will grab your gram crackers and break them in half. You will need 6 piece total. Using your frosting construct your house. (1 for the bottom, 2 for the sides, 1 for the back, and 2 for the top).

Next, When your house is complete it will look like the one above. Let dry. before messing with it. (Trust me, if you get impatient and try to add stuff to it before it’s dry it will fall and make you really sad.)

Then, pour some of your shredded coconut into a bowl and put a few drops of green food coloring into the bowl and mix. This will be the grass for your peep to sit on!

Finally, Sprinkle some “grass” on the bottom of your peeps house and decorate with candy eggs, and of course don’t forget to add your Peeps! Don’t they look cute!?

If there is one thing I love, it’s an easy breakfast recipe! Unlike me, my husband and daughter are not morning people. They like to get up around late morning and just hang around allowing themselves to wake up on their own time. (Must be nice right!?). But they do however love breakfast foods. So on weekends I like to make a yummy breakfast for them when they wake up.

One of my daughters favorite foods is strawberry so I try to make sure I incorporate it when I can. I wanted to make cinnamon rolls, but didn’t have some like I thought I did, so I decided to get a little creative and make some of my own! And let me tell you, these Strawberry Rolls that I came up with tasted awesome. I just knew I had to share it with you. I hope you enjoy!Continue reading

Nowadays, we still cook the black-eyed peas with ham or the ham hock because (many times) we have it left over from our Christmas meal. And a Classic Hoppin John Recipe is one of my favorite ways to eat black-eyed peas. Continue reading
