The OT Toolbox: Peep Popcorn

Peep Popcorn





Get ready to use up all that Easter candy!
Somehow we cannot avoid the Peeps around Easter time...they always end up in the house.  My daughter and I made this popcorn mixture as a snack for the annual cousin Easter egg hunt.  We thought it was pretty yummy (and fun to make)!


 I pretty much made it like you would make a Rice Krispie treats.
Make approx 6 cups popcorn
1/2 stick butter
6 rows Peeps
M&M's
sprinkles
First, pop some plain popcorn kernels into a large bowl.
 Melt half a stick of butter and add some marshmallows and peeps.  I added a few more marshmallows for some extra goo.  You could definitely add only peeps (try adding different colors).


I will admit that my daughter and I both made a few whimpers as we watched these little cute peeps melt:(

Once it has melted together to make a soupy gooey mixture stir it all together.

 We added a few extras...egg sprinkles, white chocolate M&M's, and pretzel M&M's.

Delicious!
