This is a post filled with color.…and lots of fresh, squishy Peeps!

This would be so cute for an Easter table display or on a buffet ~ I used some margarita glasses, filled them with little puffs of cotton candy and plopped some Peeps right into the center.

I like symmetry and when things in my life are color coded ~ I have no idea why….everything just seems to make more sense.  I don’t have any daughters but I love pink frilly girlie things like this Mason Jar Easter Basket ~ I hot glued some ears from the Dollar Tree to the lid, added some fresh pink Peeps, some Peeps milk chocolate candy in pink wrappers and some Mike and Ike Cherri and Bubb candies.

This is my Ode to Pink collage of Peeps candies including a basket with pink eggs and pink paper grass.

This is for the orange lover ~ Orange Peeps and orange-wrapped chocolate candies.

Now for GREEN! My little guy loves green so this will be his basket ~ Green Peeps, some Mike and Ike Lem and Mel candies, green wrapped chocolates, green eggs and green grass ~ the little faces on the Peeps are so darn cute ~ this basket reminds me of an Army of little Peeps taking over the world…or at least this collage.

Next up~ the traditional yellow Peeps ~ all ready to greet Easter morning.

Chocolate Lover’s Peep Basket ~ Chocolate Mousse Peeps, Milk Chocolate Dipped Chocolate Mousse Peeps and Dark Chocolate Dipped Chocolate Mousse Peeps

Last up, a cute way to serve up some candy ~ paper cups filled with Milk Chocolate Peep Candies, Dark Chocolate Peep Candies and some Mike and Ike Cherri and Bubb candies to round it out.

For more great Peep ideas ~ watch this cute video!

The folks at Peeps & Company graciously provided the candies for this post but all opinions are my own.

    I love your ideas for the peeps. I think I have to try the ones in the Mason Jars. Too cute! By the way, I loved the utube video as well. Very clever!

    Those peeps in the jar are so cute. I just kept imagining them plotting ways to escape! How cute would that be to put on a desk in a office? I don’t like to eat those marshmellowy things, but I think I will have to make some of those up just to give away!

    TDC…. too darn cute! I was so lame this year just picked up a chocolate bunny for my grand kids. I have candy, I have mason jars, and I’m gonna make something less lame.

      Miss Bliss ~ nothing you touch could possibly be lame ~ you’ve got the knack. I’ll bet you come up with something awesome.

      Thanks so much for stopping by.
