Je voudrais... Peeps

MONOGRAM Bag GIVEAWAY....Click Here!



Celebrating holidays for the right reason (religion) is what keeps our spirits alive and ourselves in check. It has also become a tradition to combine holidays with tables full of Mom's best and Aunt Nieces desserts. It's a time when the lazy bring chips, the healthy bring veggies and the smart ones bring wine. God love the chip people, since I never keep them in my house I usually pull up a chair to the nearest bag and savor every crispy chomp.

I envy those who can make beautiful desserts that taste good. I really do have an Aunt Niece who can make the BEST desserts. Her cupcakes are to die for....

(Actual photo of cupcakes my aunt made for our pre-wedding party. Fun cupcake stand too!))

I heart cupcakes! I saw these really cute cupcakes at Zen Cupcake blog and decided to make them. Easy peasy...all I needed were Easters finest, yellow chick PEEPS and some Betty Crocker moist magic in a box.

Peeps... what the.....where are the Peeps? One store, two stores- five stores later, still with empty hands I gave up. Easter without Peeps? No way...

Me: Another attempt at the store, "Je voudrais ummmm Peeps."
Worker: Quizzical expression, "Peps"... Close enough, but to be sure she understood I repeated myself.
Me: "Peeeeps".
Worker: Looking at me like I might be crazy..."No, no peps".

Easter without Peeps is like Christmas without Santa.... Honestly, I'm not even sure I like them, but now I love them. Now, I am longing for Target (always longing for Target) and the ease of walking in, to grab those cute yellow chicks. While the yellow sprinkle coating dissolves and my cavities are zinging I swallow the yummy marshmallow goo anticipating the next.

I did end up making these... I even toasted the coconut, a simple yet satisfying accomplishment.

What a great idea for a festive cupcake :) They look great!

MommyAmy said...

No Peeps????

That's just wrong.

The cupcakes look like I could eat them and never stop until they are all gone! And yes, Target is the best store and I miss it terribly!!! Thank you for the comment!

Love the cute cupcakes. No peeps? Are you kidding? That just isn't right! :)
Have a Happy Easter!

Jill said...

That's too bad about the Peeps. I don't like them, but their appearance in the stores with all the Easter candy is a happy sight. Your cupcakes are mighty cute.

Hello - thanks for stopping by my blog from SITS roll call. Your blog is SO delightful! I love the changing header, and your profile pic is so whimsical and cute! Now, do you know how mean it was to have that picture of those cupcakes up? I clicked on the pic to see if it would enlarge it. It did. And they look incredible. The frosting looks like it is to DIE for. Yum, yum, yum. And I don't have anything even close to that in my house right now, so I'm just crossing my mind that my mother-in-law will have some good sweets after Easter lunch tomorrow. The little treat you made at the end of the post is so creative, too! Thanks again for stopping by. :)

i love the peeps story. your adventures in french amuse me and bring back so many good, yet uncomfortable, funny memories of spanish gone bad. :)

what the crap with no peeps, though?!?! i wish i'd known! we have peeps in alaska- who knew?! tell me you have cadbury mini eggs...please ann- you must!!!

and how talented is that aunt?! and i definitely share the missing family aspect of holidays. it kinda sucks sometimes. in washington, we finally decided to try inviting friends over and it softened the blow for me a bit.

Jen said...

ps- this might be sacreligious (spelling?) but i like to microwave peeps to watch them explode. :) it's a stress reliever for me.

Lene said...

Oh my...no peeps.
I will be thinking about you as I dig in to my stockpile.
Not to rub it in but at Target the other day I noticed bright red peeps...What the heck is that all about.

Shalee- Be Speechless said...

What no peeps?! Oh that is terribly sad... but your egg cupcakes are very cute :D

Ms Cupcake said...

Hey Ann!

Thanks for the shout out! Do you deliver? LOL. I bought my family cupcakes from the grocery store. Too lazy/crazy/busy to bake them.

BTW, be on the lookout for the mailman. I am finally caught up.

xoxo

Bernadette said...

Those cupcakes look delicious!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

That IS absolutely a SIN...Hot Chocolate without PEEPS??? So sorry!

Makeup Theory said...

Peeps are bad for you. But I get the sentiment. It's always more urgent when you CAN'T get something you're not even sure you like. It's all about the quest. Happy Easter.

Kathy B! said...

Well, if you can't have your peps then these cute cupcakes with the toasted coconut look like a good substitute.

And no Target?! **shudders** Perish the thought...

Angie said...

What a great cupcake idea. And I love the cupcake stand.

Stereos and Souffles said...

No peeps, what the? I just ate a peep in your honor! It was blue if you must know.
