Prep Time:

I love creating peep cupcakes for Easter. They are so fun and make everyone smile! You can use any flavor cake mix or frosting! Be creative for Easter! I prefer using Whopper malted milk eggs because the coating is speckled like real bird eggs!


peeps, bunnies or chicks, or both
1 box
moist chocolate cake mix, made into cupcakes according to package directions
cake frosting, any flavor (i like cream cheese for this one)
toasted coconut
jelly beans or whoppers mini malted milk eggs for decoration (optional)

Make cupcakes according to package directions on cake mix, you can use any flavor cake mix.
When cupcakes are cool, frost them and sprinkle edges with toasted coconut or green food colored dyed coconut. Place a few jelly beans or whoppers mini malted eggs. Voila, you just created a Peep Cupcake!
