Well, folks, it happened. We aren’t even officially into the Easter season, and one of our friends has already sent us the CUTEST little marshmallow Peeps creation we’ve ever seen. And for as adorable and delicious as it looks, the directions are remarkably simple! Did we mention it’s also a rather cheap recipe that involves no cooking or baking, so you can easily involve the kiddos in the process? Yep – pretty much Easter recipe perfection we’re working with here! So what exactly will you be making? Start your engines for Easter Bunny Racecars!
Here’s what you’ll need to make the sweetest little speedsters this side of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, as taken from FreeFunEaster.com…
♦ Large Marshmallows
♦ Mini Pretzels
♦ Cream-Filled Cakes
♦ Decorator Icing
Before we get into the directions for these, we feel it’s necessary to understand that the miniature pretzel will serve as the steering wheel. See the picture above to really take in just how impossibly adorable that is! OK, we can move on now.
The first step involves cutting a small rectangle from the top of the cream-filled cake of your choosing. Since you won’t be using this removed part anywhere else in the recipe, be sure to put it to good use by eating it! The space provided by cutting away the rectangle of cake will serve as a driver’s seat for your Bunny Marshmallow Peeps, which you will further secure to the cake with a dab of white decorator icing.
Once the Peep is settled into his or her seat, use the decorator icing once again as ‘glue’ for the mini pretzel steering wheel and marshmallow tires.
Ready to get really creative? That’s where the frosting and sprinkles come into the equation. Make each car unique by getting daringly decorative with these two ingredients. Always wanted your initial on the hood of your car? Now is your chance without worrying about resale value!
