9 Ways to Play with Peeps
Easter may change dates on us each year, but we all know it’s coming soon when the infamous Peeps show up in stores. They’re an Easter staple that people either love or hate, but here at Brit HQ, we scoured the web and found some fun ways that everyone can enjoy them. And be sure to stay tuned for our own Peep hack later this week!
1. Peep Wreath: We’ve shown you how to make a fully customizable wreath, but what about making it edible? Truth be told, you might not want to eat this after it’s been hanging on your door but your guests will certainly get chuckle. (Source: Gerbera Designs)
4. Peep Pops: We love whipping up a batch of Pop Rocks Cake Pops and Easter Egg Pops, but what about Peep Pops? Put them on a lollipop stick, dip them in candy coating, and decorate! Bonus points for dorking it up with this Storm Trooper design. (Source: Sugar Swings)
5. Peep Sushi: Love the idea of sushi but aren’t too keen on raw fish? Well how about turning that sushi into a tasty dessert: a peep wrapped in a Rice Krispie treat and candy.

6. Peeps Mirror: Keep your peeps close when you gaze into this sunburst mirror. In fact, get your honey in the mirror with you and feel free to summon Shaggy: Girl, you’re my angel, you’re my darling angel, closer than my peeps you are to me, baby…(Source: Double Wide In The Sky)
8. Peeps S’mores: Add a little color to your next camping trip by toting a box of peeps along for the campfire. If you really feel like gettin’ fancy, whip up a batch of No Bake S’Mores Pie and add a few Peeps! (Source: Steamy Kitchen)
9. Push Peep Pops: Fellow 90’s kids can appreciate the greatness of a push pop. Throw some cupcakes and a peep in a push pop container for an extra special treat this Easter. (Source: Love From The Oven)
