Trick or Peeps!

It is that time of year again, the seasons are changing and it is now time for pumpkins and CANDY!  One of my family's all time favorite candies are Peeps.  

As we get ready for our annual Halloween party, I stared at all the delicious Peeps that were sent to me as part of a product review.  It then hit me, I wanted to make Pumpkin Patch Peeps cupcakes! I bought coconut flakes to dye green with food coloring.

Just a couple drops will do!

I added to coconut on top of the cupcakes and added a pumpkin shaped Peep on top.

I can't wait for my guests to arrive to see the cute pumpkin patch I made for them.

Now if you live under a rock and do not know what Peeps are, they are delicious marshmallow candies lightly coated in sugar.  Peeps joined the Just Born Candy family in 1953 as the little chicks that everyone is familiar with, and in 1958 Just Born came out with different shaped Peeps.

In 1999 launched and changed the way these yummy treats could be purchased.

In 2010 Peeps came out with the Chocolate Covered Peeps.

In addition to the chocolate covered Peeps, there are also the chocolate dipped chicks! 

Peeps are a great treat for trick or treaters too.  If you head on over to you can purchase your Halloween candy.  They also have very cute Peeps T-shirts and other Just Born Candy for sale.
