Marshmallow Peeps Cupcakes
- 1 18 1/4 oz. white cake mix or scratch cake ingredients
- White frosting
- Grated coconut
- Green food coloring
- Marshmallow Peeps (yellow, pink, white, blue or lavender)
- Peeps Jelly Beans or Teenee Beanee Gourmet Jelly Beans
Bake cupcakes as per directions on box and frost. Color grated coconut with green food coloring. Top with Marshmallow Peeps (one sits perfectly on a cupcake) and add a few Peeps Jelly Beans or Teenee Beanee Gourmet Jelly Beans (they make great eggs).
Note: If you don't like coconut, use green sugar sprinkles. You don't get the same "grass" effect as the coconut, but you might like the taste better. Another option is to pipe a "nest" of green icing to encircle the top and place a Peep in the center. Sprinkle with colored sprinkles for a finishing touch.
