PEEPS®It’s holiday baking season which means there’s so many things to create! This year PEEPS® wants to inspire your Peepsonality and see what you’re creating.

    This is a fun idea! It’s like a holiday twist on s’mores. I haven’t seen these Peeps, maybe I haven’t been looking hard enough.

    These look delicious! I think I’m going to ‘borrow’ your recipe and make a batch or 2 of my own but I was thinking about substituting Nutella for the chocolate frosting before adding the peeps.

    I love this! What a great idea! I really like how your gingerbread recipe doesn’t use to much ginger and uses some cinnamon. Can’t wait to try this. Plus who doesn’t love Peeps!

    I’m going to try your recipe for gingerbread cookies! This is my favorite to make each year, but yours look more “fluffy” than mine, so I’ll give your recipe a try!
