In good Easter spirit, I bring you...Peeps! Because, really, what better way to put Easter weekend into gear than with candy? Delicious marshmallow chicks and bunnies, at that!

For those of you outside the US and Canada, these are Peeps:

Washington Post Peeps Diorama Contest

The Washington Post holds an annual Peeps diorama contest every Easter. This year is their 4th consecutive year of Easter Peeps fun and the entries are way beyond incredible! I was really impressed with the crazy amount of creativity that went into some of these. People even went so far as to take popular news, like the ridiculous balloon boy hoax of last October for instance, and reenact the story with Peeps!

Hopefully this post will inspire you to make something cute with candy this weekend. I'm making Peeps cupcakes :) Granted not as creative as these dioramas but still equally as tasty! I'll share my Easter baking inventions on twitter. Share yours with me too! Happy Easter folks!
