How to make Peeps Candy Easter Baskets

We made two different shaped Peeps Candy Easter Baskets. One using more of the bunny peeps and one using more of the Chicks. It just depends on how you wish to make your basket.

We also made these edible easter baskets and one school supply baskets for a teacher

The base of the basket will determine the shape. Use a glue gun to attach the boxes of Peeps to one another.


You will need to press on them slightly to allow them to dry.

You can see I did not press on these corners enough so I had to add another application of hot glue.

Fill the inside with shredded paper and attach a ribbon handle. Of course, you need to add more Peeps and Mike and Ike candy to your basket.

We gave one of these baskets to our friends who were driving through town on a college tour. Every road Spring Break road trip needs some Peeps to keep everyone alert, parents included.
