- Printable Gift Tags
- Hole Punch
- Bakers Twine
- Paper Straws
- Marshmallow Peeps
- Easter Colored Sixlets
- White chocolate melting wafers
Open your peeps and lay them all out face down on a cookie sheet. Melt white chocolate in the microwave. Place melted chocolate in a plastic ziploc bag.
Snip a small hole in the corner of the ziploc and squeeze a dot of white chocolate onto the back of each Peep.
Before it cools, stick a colored sixlet in the chocolate for a little bunny tail. To keep things even simpler, you can completely leave the bunny tails off!
Next, take your paper straws and place the Peeps on the end of each straw. Be sure you push the straw in far enough so the Peeps don’t fall off.
Now place each Peeps Pop inside a 4×6 inch cellophane bag. Tie closed at the base of the Peep using bakers twine.
Print out the Peeps gift tags on white cardstock. Cut them out, punch a hole where indicated, then attach a gift tag to each Peeps Pop and that’s it!
In no time at all you have some really cute Easter treats that you can make together with the kids!
