PEEPS Chicks Cupcakes


I posted this awhile ago but I wanted to repost this for all who are new followers.  I think these are the cutest little treats ever!  They are so simple to make and can be made with kids for Easter and making great school treats for any class party.  You can make any type of cupcakes you like.  I used simple yellow cupcakes, added green buttercream.  I then added the PEEPS chicks, I used yellow but you can do all the colors if you'd like after that I added Malted Milk Eggs for the chick's eggs.  They came out so cute and all the kid's in my daughter's class loved them and thought they were so cool.  I will make them again this year for her class and bring them in to her PSR class as well since they are all excited about making their First Confession this week and celebrating Easter!  The nuns always love treats!

So this is what you'll need:  (I always make 2 dozen cupcakes)
24 cupcakes (any flavor either made from scratch or cake mix)
24 PEEPS Chicks (any color)
Green Frosting (homemade or store bought vanilla or cream cheese frosting dyed to green)
Whoppers Malted Milk Mini Eggs

Bake your cupcakes according to your recipe or cake mix directions.  (If making them from cake mix you may have to make 2 boxes which will make more than 24 cupcakes, nothing wrong with having extra, hee hee)  Let them cool.

Make your frosting and dye it green either with gel dye or dye drops until you reach the desired color, I made mine a pale green not over power or destroy the flavor of the frosting)

Place each PEEPS Chick on each cupcake.

Tuck in your eggs onto the side of the chicks.

Then you're done!  Quick Easy Easter/Spring Treats!

Ready For Class....

Spring is Coming!
Have A Sweet Day!
