If you are anything like me, you like to go all out for major holidays, and Easter is one of my favorites.  I love to color eggs for Easter Egg hunting and plan the Easter brunch or dinner menu. If it’s Easter brunch, I usually serve Snickerdoodle waffles and healthy breakfast quiche muffins. Dinner is either leg of lamb or glazed ham, with sides like bacon wrapped asparagus and cheesy hash brown potato casserole.

Of course, no holiday meal is complete without serving desserts. Even though marshmallow Peeps are made in different shapes and colors for holidays besides Easter, the original marshmallow chicks scream Easter to me. They’re adorable and tasty, so why not use them in some fun and easy Easter recipes like these?!

Easter Decor Ideas

While I really enjoy sweet treats, I also love Easter decorations. Every year, I try to think of something different to add to the Easter decor in our house. Even though it’s rare that anyone visits the house to see the decorations, Brian and I enjoy making the house a bit more festive for the holidays.

Have you ever used Peeps in crafts or to decorate your home for the holidays?

Not too long ago, I saw this adorable kid’s craft idea from A Mom’s Impression, showing how to make Puffy Paint with Easter marshmallow Peeps.

Mama-to-Be Easter Marshmallow Peeps Table Decor

What You’ll Need:

  • Easter marshmallow Peeps chicks (any color you want)
  • Graham cracker crumbs
  • Easter malted milk balls
  • Small canning jars – I use 1/2 pint wide mouth mason jars


Start by putting the graham cracker crumbs on the bottom of the jar.

Add in a few malted milk ball eggs (basically to cover up the graham crackers)

Put the marshmallow Peep on the top.

See?! They are SO cute and totally easy and fun to make! You can line up a few of them along a table runner, or make one for each place setting at the table.
