Patriotic Peeps for Independence Day!
It’s not a holiday
without your Peeps!
I found Patriotic Peeps Chicks,
speckled with red and blue sugar flecks,
proudly waving the flag on packages
at Cracker Barrel.
It seemed like the perfect excuse to celebrate
with a flag formation of
Red, White & Blue candy for July 4th!
Or exercise your Freedom and Independence
and use them to top a brownie bite,
a swizzle stick, candy skewer. . .
or Red Velvet Cupcake!
Pull ‘n’ Peel Twizzlers
make a patriotic nest for
Marshmallow Chick Peeps!
I found Patriotic Pull ‘n’ Peel
Twizzlers at Walmart.
Pull the strands apart and layer to build a nest
in cupcake liners for easy serving.
An easy Red, White & Blue treat for
kids or the young at heart for July 4th!
PEEPS® Fun Facts:
What took 27 hours in 1953 to create one
PEEPS® Marshmallow Chick,
takes six minutes today thanks to technology.
Just Born produces enough
PEEPS® Brand Marshmallow Candies
in one year to circle the earth twice.
Yellow and white PEEPS® chicks and bunnies
came first, followed by pink, lavender,
blue, green and orange.
Wishing you a
Safe & Happy Independence Day
with your Peeps :)
Thank you for your visit, I’m joining:
Honestly, isn’t that “Cracker Barrel” something!! One of the few places we can get Route 11 potato chips!! We actually plan our trips around CB!! franki
Mary, you do peeps so well :-) The vanilla creme are the best!
How cute are those and how fun for kids! I like how you’re using the decorative cupcake liners for displaying foodie items!
Your title made me smile even before I clicked over Mary:@) My ShopRite has the Twizzlers but I haven’t seen the patriotic peeps-love ’em! The bunting on the package is just too great! I’m sure you’re gearing up for a big weekend on the lake-enjoy:@)
Never knew these items were out there; will have to check my Harris Teeter for them. Wonder if the licorice strings are Sugar Free?
OMGosh, these are too stinkin’ cute for words, Mary!! How very creative of you to make a “nest” for them out of licorice strands. I did not know EITHER of these products existed. You always come up with the BEST finds…thanks!!!!! The grandkidlets will just love these!
I haven’t seen either of those fun products, Mary! You’re always on the lookout for us and our peeps! xo
Mary, I always love peeping at your latest peeps creation! I hope they deposit some red, white and blue eggs in their delicious nests! Linda
So cute! Love the nests.
Mary, every time I see Peeps I think of you. This is an adorable idea. Pinning this one! Also sharing with my sister and friends with grands.
Thanks for the inspiration! Happy 4th!
Yellow Peeps chicks are still my favorite…although I will make the sacrifice and eat other colors and bunnies too if no yellow chicks are available…
Great ideas & presentation. Red, white & blue M&M’s?…where? Thanks!
They’re milk chocolate candies from Party City, not M&M’s but taste the same. Available in lots of colors :)
Now that’s a sweet peepy treat!
Patriotic Peeps in a red white and blue Twizzler’s nest! What could be better! Or easier!! Too adorable Mary, you know I consider you the Peeps Queen! I love the faux M&M flag and thanks for the reminder, Party City is a great source for colored candy props~the Targets around here stopped selling the jelly bellies by color and I miss that!
I will have to keep my eyes open for the red,white & blue peeps, how fun!!?! Wish candy corn would do the red,white & blue !!
Good Day !
How cute. It amazes me that you see a product and know JUST how to use it and make the most creative displays I have ever seen!!! Happy 4th to you too!!!!
You come up with the best designs… Love it…
So cute, Mary. My oldest daughter LOVES Peeps! I’ll have to find her some of the patriotic ones. I love this cute post!
You gotta love the “Peep People” they think of every holiday…you have the most cutest “Peep Projects”…pinning away Mary!!
