Peep Popcorn

Easter is just around the corner and I don't know about you but it has to be one of my favorite holidays for candy. Walking down the aisle looking at the array of color peeps and the wonderful hint of a yellow bag, stuffed a mile high into an end-cap full of Reese peanut butter eggs. 

As I begin to hoard these precious yummys in my pantry ready for my consumption, I ran across a brilliant idea on the internet, peeps in popcorn. Oh yea, someone had the great idea. Peeps are just marshmallows, sugar and coloring, so why not experiment with them a little.

This would be a great addition for an Easter party, at your Easter dinner, heck it would be good anytime!

  • 2-3 cups popcorn, un-buttered and unsalted
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 5 individual Peeps
  • Place popped popcorn in a bowl.
  • In a small saucepan, melt butter over low to medium heat. Once all of the butter is melted, add Peeps.
  • Stir continuously until all Peeps are melted and mixture is smooth and even in color.
  • Remove from heat and pour hot marshmallow mixture over popcorn. Stir gently with a rubber spoon to ensure all pieces are coated.
  • Spread popcorn on wax paper and allow to cool. Once cooled, place into an airtight container for storage.
That’s it! Easy, right? This is a fun and festive snack for the kids to take into school as well.
