INSTRUCTIONS

PEEPS® Marshmallow Chick in the Egg

  1. Heat the white chocolate in the microwave according to the instructions on the package.
  2. Open the eggs and spoon a quarter-size amount of melted white chocolate into the bottom of one of the egg halves.
  3. Let it cool for about 15 seconds then gently place the Chick on the chocolate and hold until dry.
  4. Add sprinkles inside the egg then close.
  5. Take a handful of the paper grass and twist it into a nest.
  6. Place the nest on the plate and set the egg in the center of the nest. Trim any loose ends.

PEEPS® Garland

  1. Let the PEEPS® Marshmallow Bunnies and mini marshmallows sit out overnight before assembling the garland. They will be easier to string when they harden a bit.
  2. When you’re ready to assemble, thread the twine through the needle and tie it around the needle’s eye.
  3. Alternate threading PEEPS® Marshmallow Bunnies and mini marshmallows leaving an inch in between each.
  4. Hang above a dessert table or weave through the center of the table.

PEEPS® Decorating Tray

  1. Heat the white chocolate in the microwave according to the instructions on the package.
  2. Dip the larger end of the MIKE AND IKE® candy into the white chocolate then in the green sprinkles so it looks like a carrot.
  3. Add a pinch of sprinkles into each well of the palette.
  4. Set out a small bowl of icing to drizzle on the PEEPS® Marshmallow Bunnies to allow the sprinkles and candies to stick.
  5. Mini marshmallows can be added to the back of the PEEPS® Marshmallow Bunnies as tails with icing.

PEEPS® Straw

  1. Put the elastic over the PEEPS® Marshmallow Bunnies head and secure it to the straw.
  2. Tie a bow using Baker’s twine to finish. Trim the bottom of the straw as needed.
