Many people have a love-hate relationship with marshmallow Peeps. The truth is; those sticky sweet Peeps make for an extremely simple Easter dessert. All you need is your favorite boxed cake mix and icing along with a package of Peeps. Dress up your cupcakes by using Easter-inspired wrappers. To make, just follow the package directions for two dozen cupcakes. Icing can be chocolate, but an Easter pastel, like yellow, is always a nice touch. With a container of vanilla icing and food coloring, you can make yellow, orange, or green icing. Apply a healthy coating of icing and top with a Peep.
Another super simple Easter dessert is a Peep-inspired cake. Using a boxed cake mix, make a round or a rectangle cake. Once it cools, apply a liberal amount of icing. Easter colors make for a fun seasonal icing and all you need is food coloring to create a bright color. Along the sides of the cake, place Peeps to make a border. Be sure the Peep is facing outward. Then top off the cake with a layer of rainbow sprinkles.
