These festive cupcakes have coconut, Peeps, and jelly beans for a sweet Easter treat.

How To Make Marshmallow Peeps Cupcakes

  • 18 1/4 oz. white cake mix (or scratch cake ingredients)
  • white frosting
  • coconut (grated )
  • green food coloring
  • marshmallow peeps (yellow, pink, white, blue or lavender)
  • peeps jelly beans (or Teenee Beanee Gourmet Jelly Beans)
  1. Bake cupcakes as per directions on box and frost.
  2. Color grated coconut with green food coloring.
  3. 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).
  4. Note: If you don’t like coconut, use green sugar sprinkles.
  5. You don’t get the same “grass” effect as the coconut, but you might like the taste better.
  6. Another option is to pipe a “nest” of green icing to encircle the top and place a Peep in the center.
  7. Sprinkle with colored sprinkles for a finishing touch.
