PEEPS® Halloween Cupcakes & My Favorite Halloween Candy
“This post is sponsored by PEEPS & Company® . All views expressed are that of my own.”
Have you thought about what kind of Halloween candy (if any) you will be passing out this year? For us, we will be handing out non-candy Halloween treats and some candy ones. Hot Tamales® (my favorite Halloween candy), Mike & Ike®, Goldenberg’s Peanut Chews, and PEEPS® (for those extra special kids) are just a few brands that will be filling our Halloween bowls.
I have to admit, for me, PEEPS are so much cuter than they taste! I know, I am crazy right? So many people LOVE PEEPS, and I do too, but for decorating with. Check out this PEEPS Halloween Mason Jar craft I made a couple of years ago–super cute! This year, in celebration of my 31st birthday, I decided to make some Vanilla PEEPS Halloween Cupcakes. They were cute, easy and perfect for Halloween parties and kids. Best of all, they are so just so darling with PEEPs toppers!

- Pumpkin Spice Flavored Chicks dipped in White Fudge
They were super fresh and very easy to gently break apart to add to my cupcakes. I cheated a little this time and used boxed cake mix, canned frosting, and Halloween sprinkles. I didn’t feel like baking all day so this did the trick! I topped my Halloween cupcakes with a star shaped dollop of frosting, sprinkled them with jimmies, sugar, and sprinkles, and then a PEEP.
Totally easy, and boy did the kids LOVE them! Guess what? After all that I don’t like the way PEEPS taste talk, I decided to try a Candy Corn flavored PEEP chick, and you know what—it *was* good! not sure if I am just partial to the flavor or what, but as I type these words I am enjoying my own little birthday cupcake!
