When I think of PEEPS, I usually think of Easter. However, this holiday season PEEPS is releasing a brand new candy called PEEPS Chocolate Covered Mint Flavored Trees. These are different from the marshmallow treats you’re used to because they now have a delicious addition . . . chocolate! Yum!

peeps productNow your holiday treats can look extra special with the addition of these brand new PEEPS. It’s so easy to add them to your cakes, cupcakes, or any other type of dessert because they already have a festive look to them.

PEEPS recently sent me a whole box of these yummy trees and you should have seen my kids faces when I opened the box. They couldn’t wait to try one . . . especially Kiana. She has a thing for marshmallows and would eat them right out of the bag if I let her. Even I couldn’t wait to see how they tasted. And even though I’m not as big a fan of marshmallows that Kiana is, I have to say that they were really good! They reminded me of Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream . . . only not as cold.

But what am I going to do with a whole box of PEEPS? Well, I passed some out to Kiana’s classmates which instantly made her the popular kid in class. The rest I’m going to use to decorate some holiday desserts. I love that it’s so easy to add them to anything!

For example, I usually make chocolate pudding parfaits for the girls because it’s so easy and they love it. All I had to do was add a little colored sprinkles and top with a PEEPS Chocolate Covered Mint Flavored Tree. Voila! Instant happiness!

So this holiday season, stock up on PEEPS Chocolate Covered Mint Flavored Trees to add that special touch to any dessert, use them as stocking stuffers, or have one with a cup of hot cocoa. Whatever you use them for, they’ll be a big hit with all the kids!
