Easter is one of my favorite holidays! It is my favorite for a few reasons 1) Because of Jesus! 2) Cute Springtime Easter Outfits, 3) Family Gatherings, 4) Easter Egg Hunts, 5) EASTER CANDY! I love the special seasonal candy that you can only get at Easter time.
Speaking of Easter Candy – Can we just take a moment to talk Peeps. You know, the sugar coated bunny shaped marshmallow candies. I was totally shocked last Easter when I bit into an orange Peep, only to discover it was an orange cream flavored marshmallow. When did peeps add flavoring to their candy?! This year, as I was cruising the Easter candy aisle, when I discovered MORE FLAVORS! Here is the 2021 Peeps flavor line up: Hot Tamales, Cotton Candy, Party Cake and my kids favorite – FRUIT PUNCH!

This is a really fun recipe – well, it’s more like creative idea to try with your Peeps this Year. It is really easy, fun and when you put them in a box, it makes for a really cute presentation.
Here’s What You’ll Need:
Peeps – You can use Chicks or Bunnies, or mix it up.
White Melting Chocolate – (use melting chocolate, not baking chips. Trust me.)
Craft Crinkle Paper
Pastry Box ( we got ours from Wal-Mart, in the cake decorating section.)
Spring Time Decor – optional – you can decorate the outside of your box!
Putting It All Together:
Melt White Chocolate according to the package directions.
Dip Peeps in White Chocolate
Then dip the peeps into the Sprinkles
Let them cool and harden on a piece of wax paper.
The Peeps will cool pretty quickly. At this point you can eat them OR you can place them in a box and use springtime decor on the top of the box.
Try a White Chocolate Covered Peep S’MORE!!!! Just melt 2 Peeps on a plate in the microwave for 10 seconds. Using a spoon, gently remove peeps from plate and place them inside 2 graham crackers. And BOOM! You’re Welcome!

¼ Tsp Black Pepper
Dash of Salt –
1/2 Tsp Smoked Paprika
Chives or Green Onions to Garnish.
Peel, cut and divide the egg whites from the egg yokes
Soy Sauce Egg Whites:
Place egg whites into a deep dish. Pour the soy sauce over the egg whites until fully covered. Note: If your eggs are not fully covered, you can flip your eggs halfway through the process.
Soak your egg whites in the refrigerator 4 hours up to overnight. Note: Less soaking time = less flavor and lighter color egg whites. More soaking time = more flavor and darker color egg whites.
Mix egg yolks, mayo, sriracha, pepper, and salt (egg whites will be salty – but you still need to season your Sriracha egg yolk mixture– just go slowly, you can always add more salt if needed.)
Blend the egg yolk mixture together until smooth and there is no lumps.

Our family loves boba! Two things we do not love about going out to get Boba are the long lines and how expensive it can be for a family of five. So to remedy that – we have been trying out different kinds of boba combos from home! It has been so fun to experiment with the kids in the kitchen. As a mom, I also like being able to control how much sugar goes into each drink. Here are our top two favorite recipes along with our recommendations for the best homemade boba. – You can also check out our YouTube video linked below for the visual details!
Blueberry Fruit Tea Boba with Cream Cheese Foam
2 Bags of Blueberry Tea (we used Celestial Seasonings Multi Pack – The blueberry tea only comes in their multi pack)
1 Bag of Peach Tea (Optional – I find the peach just enhances the blueberry flavor)
Sugar. – Sweeten to your liking. (you can also sweeten with honey or simple syrup or use a sugar substitute)
Pour boiling hot water over tea bags . Seep blueberry and peach tea in hot water for 5 min.
Remove tea bags and add sweetener of your choice.
Cream Cheese Foam
2 Tbs of Cream Cheese (make sure cream cheese is at room temperature.)
3 Tbs of Powder Sugar
4 Tbs of Heavy Cream
1 Dash of Salt (optional)
Mix Cream Cheese and Sugar until smooth. Add heavy cream to the mixture and blend until foamy. Note: You want the foam to still be in liquid form. Do not over mix. You are not making whip cream it is the texture of thick and foamy half and half.
PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER:
Add warm Boba to the bottom of the cup.
Add lots of Ice
Pour Blueberry Tea over Ice
Top it off with Cream Cheese Foam
Ice Coffee Boba
Add Sweetened Condensed Milk to the bottom of the cup
Add warm Boba
Add lots of Ice
Add 2 Shots of hot Espresso
Top it off with Half n Half or Heavy Cream
I hope you you’ll give these recipes a try! And let us know in the comments the different combos you tired!
1 Box of Yellow Cake Mix. (For best results use Betty Crocker)
½ Cup of Oil
¼ Cup of Water
Mix together all ingredients until a soft dough forms. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. You want to make sure the balls are about the same size so the cookies cook evenly. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees
1 Cup Powder Sugar (You can add a ½ cup more if it seems like it’s not going to be enough frosting)
1 Tbs Soften Butter
2 Tbs Lemon Juice. (For best results use juice from a real lemon.)
1 Tbs Milk. (Optional. Use only if you add more sugar to make more frosting. If you use more lemon juice it will just become too sour)
Zest from one Lemon
Add Lemon Glaze to cookies while they are still warm. Sprinkles are optional – but always necessary at our house!
Wait for cookies to completely cool and ENJOY.
