  1. Adorable!! All great ideas. I was eyeing the peeks in Target today, but didn’t pick any up. :-)

  2. Very cute and extremely creative peep ideas! Off to share with my facebook friends.

  3. This is why Easter is dangerous! What’s better than sugar covered marshmallow and chocolate!! I think I may have to pick some *more* up from the store this week! I love these ideas!

  4. Not a fan of eating peeps! I think they are adorable but I am not a fan of anything marshmallow. Yes, that includes Rocky Road ice-cream. I know, right? What’s wrong with me?! LOL

  5. Love the beautiful color of peeps!! Thank you for the ideas. Going to make colorful treats for my daughter Easter party next month <3

  6. No hay emoción más intensa para un inventor que ver una de sus creaciones funcionando
