Peeps Corn – Marshmallow Peeps Popcorn Recipe

peeps corn

This is such a fun (and easy!) recipe for Easter! We all see those adorable little Peeps at the stores… they come in such a great variety of colors and just seeing them pop up on the shelves reminds me of spring and warm weather to come. My daughter loves them – a sugar coated marshmallow, what’s not to like right? If you’re looking for a new way to enjoy this popular Easter treat, then this Peeps Corn recipe is for you! One of my favorite snacks, popcorn, is coated in melted marshmallowy goodness to create a sweet and crunchy snack that both young and old will love. It’s a great addition to any Easter party and is a cute food to display on the table for Easter dinner.

The recipe outlines below is for creating one color at a time. It’s about 2 or 3 servings. To make it more fun (and to feed a big group!) get several different color peeps and make many colors!

Ingredients

  • 2-3 cups popcorn, unbuttered and unsalted
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 5 individual Peeps

Directions

  • Place popped popcorn in a tupperware or other bowl.
  • In a small saucepan, melt butter over low to mediumĀ 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 por hot marshmallow mixture over top of popcorn. Stir gently with a rubber spoon or spatula 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. It was a big hit in my house and my daughter is already asking to make more. Enjoy!
