These PEEPS Cupcakes are so colorful and so simple to make. We have been making all kinds of PEEPS recipes lately. I do not think my family can ever get enough of PEEPS ha ha! Have you had enough of me sharing PEEPS Ideas? lol. I have shared Chocolate Covered PEEPS and PEEPS S’Mores with you so far. I have a few more PEEPS Ideas on my list of things to make this next few weeks. I love surprising the kiddos with treats after school so I figure I will make them a few more PEEPS treats.
These PEEPS cupcakes are so easy like most of the cupcakes I have shared with you. I have yet to sign up for a cupcake class, ha ha. Maybe someday. Just grab your boxed cake mix and ingredients, PEEPS and homemade or canister frosting. You can also add on coordinating sprinkles too.
1 box Cake Mix
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
1/2 cup softened Butter
2 tbsp Milk
2 cup Powdered Sugar
Peeps Chicks or Bunnies
Bake cupcakes according to box directions.
Transfer to wire racks to cool.
Cream butter in a medium bowl
Slowly add in the powdered sugar, and milk as needed, until everything is incorporated and frosting is right consistency.
Divide into equal size batches of the number of colors desired and add several drops of color to each.
Transfer icing to piping bag or to a zippered bag and clip corner.
Pipe icing onto cupcakes and top with Peeps.
These PEEPS Cupcakes make me feel great especially since today is the first day of spring. So bright and colorful. The kiddos loved them of course. You could make these for Easter dessert, take them in to the office (I promise everyone will love them, who doesn’t love PEEPS?) I even enjoyed one with my evening coffee last night. These would also be great to have for a school classroom Easter party.
