What would the holidays be without PEEPS®? You have bunnies for Easter, ghosts for Halloween and even Christmas trees and Hot Cocoa dipped PEEPS® for Christmas. PEEPS® add a festive touch to cupcakes, cookies, you name it. You can add PEEPS® on just about anything. A few years ago for Easter brunch they were serving PEEPtini’s at the restaurant with a bunny PEEP floating on top, so cute! My kiddos especially my marshmallow loving daughter loves these.
These Hot Cocoa PEEPS® Pie are super easy to make and fun for even kids to make, and of course to eat. They are simply made with mini store bought graham cracker shells filled with creamy chocolate pudding and topped with a large dollop of cool whip and Hot Cocoa PEEPS® that are dipped in white fudge or try the Sugar Cookie Flavored Chicks that are dipped in milk chocolate. These adorable pies would definitely be a fun addition to any holiday gathering. I love to make these because they are so simple to make and they are always a hit!
Not only are PEEPS® fun to use in recipes like this but they make cute stocking stuffers too. I add a package of PEEPS® to make kids stockings every year.
