Peeps Easter Dough

You guys… it’s March. When did that happen?! Things have been a whirlwind here with Sprinkles and I, so this weekend we decided to head to her hometown in the Cotton Candy Kingdom. If you are new to this blog, Sprinkles is my pet unicorn. Her parents are the King and Queen of a magical kingdom and sometimes when we need to take a little break, we head over there to chill out.

On Friday night after arriving we ran into our old friend the Easter Bunny (you run into all of holiday icons when you visit the Cotton Candy Kingdom). It’s not uncommon to find the Easter Bunny chilling out before Easter. I mean, it’s an incredibly big job to get all of those baskets distributed and eggs hidden. Santa has elves to help him, but the Easter Bunny rides solo. Anyway, he knows how much we love to create things and decided to give us a recipe for some fun Easter themed dough made from… Peeps!

Here’s What you’ll need:

5 Peeps (per color batch)

3 tbsp. corn starch

2 tsp. coconut oil

Optional: Food coloring (I used literally 1 drop in each of my color batches.)

Let’s get started! 

 1.) Combine all three ingredients to a microwave safe bowl. I used a Pyrex measuring cup and it worked like a dream. Put in the microwave for about 30 seconds or until you see your peeps begin to expand. They will double to triple in size–and look so cute and chubby. Ha!

2.) Remove the bowl from the microwave, and mix the ingredients with a spoon. Be careful! Once your cute Peeps friends are mixed and cool enough finish kneading by the dough with your hands. If your Peeps Easter Dough is stickier than you want, add a little more corn starch. I add to add some to my blue batch.

3.) If you would like add some food coloring for a richer color, by all means…. do it! I only added one drop to each batch as I wanted my dough to still be more pastel. After all, Easter and pastels go together like peanut butter and jelly. :)

This dough is totally exile and taste-safe! So it is easy for little friends. I found that when we were done playing, it began to get harder. It’s not the best for saving– so have fun with it the day you make it.
