Every year, the seasonal debate pops up across social media- Peeps or Jelly Beans? I personally love both! This year, I had some fun with our Peeps creating adorable treats and interesting Peep’speriments with the kids.
Peeps on a Stick:
If you’re looking for a simple but fun party treat or gift idea, grab a bunch of peeps different colors and put them on a stick! I used a rainbow assortment of colors and flavors in a mixture of the classical flavors and specialty ones (cotton candy and birthday cake are both Yummmmazing in case you were wondering) and topped ours with a bunny! You can grab clear plastic wrap bags at any craft store to ensure your Peeps on a Stick are wrapped and ready for gifting! Tie them off with a string and a gift tag and enjoy! Aren’t they so cute?!
Now, it’s time to enjoy them! If you have a little time, try this yummy Peeps treat!
How to Make Peeps S’Mores:
Tonight we conducted a SUPER FUN Peep’speriment cooking our Peeps into S’Mores 3 ways.
Option 1: The Oven
Bake at 450 degrees for about 5 minutes.
This option was by far the MESSIEST, softest, and squishiest. They melted like crazy!
Option 2: The Air Fryer
Cook at 400 degrees for 5 minutes.
This option browned the most and the Peeps got a little crispy.
Option 3: The Microwave
Microwave for 45 seconds
-This option was by far the cleanest and the Peeps grew the biggest.

Which was was best: Oven, Air Fryer, or Microwave?
Andrew and Avalynn said the oven option was their favorite. Aidan loved the air fryer the best. I loved the microwave best because I am not a very messy eater. All options were so yummy, fun, and easy to make!
If you have a bunch of leftover peeps, I highly recommend a cookout! The kids had fun tasting and noticing what was different about each method of cooking and what was similar. I think I definitely scored some big mom points.
I wish we could have tried roasting them in a campfire also! I bet that would be amazing!
