Today we have a tutorial on the blog which was created by an amazingly talented woman named Brooke. Brooke created this recipe using Easter Peeps and Twinkies.
We are using American ingredients that can be purchased in the UK from Amazon and some items from the Asda and Tesco Foreign Foods sections.
I fell in love with Peeps when my friend brought some over from the USA and they reminded me of marshmallow treats that I used to eat in New Zealand and who doesn’t like Twinkies?
I hope you enjoy this Easter Peeps Fun Food Tutorial.

What You Will Need
- 6 Twinkies
- 8 Peeps, bunny shaped, multi-color
- Black Licorice Ropes
- Wilton Candy Melts Drizzle Pouch (White chocolate)
- 6 Necco Wafer Candies
- 6 Plain M&M’s
- Easter Sprinkles
- You can buy Twinkies in Asda in the UK
Let’s Make It
Cut a small chunk out of the middle of the Twinkie without cutting through the bottom or the sides. Reserve these pieces to use the filling from them later.
Cut about a fourth off from the bottom of each peep.
Place the peeps into the holes of the Twinkies and make a small slit in front of the peep to put a Necco wafer into for the steering wheel.
Now, take some of the Twinkie filling reserved from earlier, and “glue” on 2 candy headlights onto the front of each Twinkie.
To make the wheels, roll up a piece of the black licorice (about 8 inches long).
To do this, dip your fingers in water and run the licorice between them to wet the licorice, then roll. Let those sit and dry for a few minutes.
Heat the Wilton Candy Pouch per package directions, and “glue” 4 licorice tires onto each car, let dry.
Finally take the candy pouch and “glue” on one M&M on the backend of the car.
Now, they are ready to Eat!
I hope you like the tutorial as much I did. The Easter peeps are fantastic and such a great idea!
