Peeps marshmallow candies are sweetening the holiday season with their offerings this year. There are so many festive flavors and shapes this year! These work great as stocking stuffers, colorful additions to baked goods, and adorable accents to art projects.

First, there are the Peeps Chocolate Dipped Candy Cane Flavored Chicks. These are three delectable Candy Cane flavored marshmallow chicks dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with red speckles.

There is also the Peeps Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Mint Trees. These are individually wrapped mint marshmallow trees covered in either dark chocolate or milk chocolate.

The Peeps Gingerbread Flavored Men were a favorite! These are gingerbread flavored marshmallow in smiling gingerbread men shapes. They are beyond cute.

The Peeps Trees are green tree-shaped holiday marshmallow decorated with red, yellow, and blue garland and topped with a star.

Peeps Peppermint Stars are a package of nine peppermint flavored star shaped marshmallow sprinkled with red sugar speckles.

Another favorite was the Peeps Rainbow Pop. This is four assorted green, red, or white festive marshmallow chicks on a stick.

All of these Peeps will make great stocking stuffers this year!!

Pop Chef

Pop Chef is the new, fast and easy way to make fabulous edible creations! The secret is its
3-in-one action – which shapes, pops, and creates stars, circles, hearts, and more without the
mess or hassle of knives or cookie cutters. With Pop Chef you can design eye popping snacks,
party platters, meals, even gifts like a pro! It’s a snack-tivity that’s even safe for kids to use.
Perfect for use on fruits, cheeses, vegetables, breads and more, Pop Chef lets you “push” and
“pop” your way through show stopping food preparations in seconds.

I have to admit I was impressed with the PopChef. First, it does exactly what it’s suppose to do. However, it was easy enough that both my 9 year old and my 6 year old could do it. We practiced on fruit, but my kids loved making themselves little sandwiches with it. There was plenty of shapes for them to pick from and I recommend picking one up! It doesn’t get any easier than this to make eye popping snacks, party platters, meals, and even gifts!
