Peep Parade

Peep ParadeNothing says “spring” like a pastel Peep parade. These rustic cuties are fun and super easy to make. Kids young and old will have fun messing around with the powdered sugar and sticky cut-outs. Plan ahead for parade day, as each batch of marshmallows needs to dry overnight before cutting. Our go-to marshmallow recipe comes together quickly and note you’ll need to make three batches if you want to include all the colors and flavors shown here. Each batch makes one 9×11 tray.

Peep Parade

We combined beet powder and almond extract for our first batch and they were incredible! For batch number two, we combined matcha powder and peppermint. The third batch was a pairing of turmeric and vanilla. Add more spice to increase the color, 1-2 teaspoons in the marshmallow mix made for these beautiful pastels. Choose cookie cutters without too many nooks and crannies because the marshmallows are sticky, and dust the sides a bit as you cut them out for easier handling and to keep them from sticking together. We can’t claim the health benefits of the spices will cancel out the sugar, but they are beautiful and delicious!matcha
