Hey, M Girls, it's no secret that Peeps are a huge staple of Easter. Ask anyone you know to name three candies they associate with the Springtime holiday and they'll probably mention Peeps, Cadbury eggs, and chocolate bunnies!
But get this — we're taking Easter to a new level with this amazing DIY Peeps recipe that we found from Food52. That's right. You can D-I-Y your own Peeps! Is that not the coolest thing ever?!
What You'll Need:
3/4 cup cold water
2 packets unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup colored sanding sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 pinch of salt
1 tablespoon of chocolate chips
We didn't use this in the recipe below but if you want to flavor your Peeps, you might want to add in some additional flavorings, such as vanilla extract. You can see the full recipe HERE.
