Can you think of a more appropriate Easter book to review here on the blog?! Didn’t think so ;)

When I first heard about this book, I wasn’t sure how much you could do with Peeps besides eat stale bunnies or blow them up in the microwave. But after reading this book, there are some cute, super-funny ideas you can put to work.

Besides the obvious recipe-inspired ideas, there are some very cute craft projects in the book. I loved the idea of taking Peeps and making them into place card holders, a topper for a wedding cake and even garland for the home.

I was very inspired to put some Peeps to work after going through the book. Thanks to some marshmallow inspiration, I came up with my own ideas:

Embroidered Peeps dish towels!

Foamy Peeps wreath!
