Peeps Easter Basket Cupcakes

Sharing is caring!

Easter is ALMOST here! Well in about 3 weeks. And I thought it would be fun to feature a easter type recipe using my favorite Easter candy peeps!

Peeps Easter Basket Cupcakes



  • 12 cupcakes from your favorite recipe or box mix
  • 2 to 3 cups frosting
  • 6 Twizzlers Rainbow Twists Licorice Candy
  • 12 Peeps Marshmallow Bunnies
  • Green sugar sprinkles
  • 1 to 2 cups jelly beans
  • You will also need:
  • Large open star tip (Wilton 1M Open Star Piping Tip)
  • Piping bag


  1. Pipe a single layer of frosting over the cupcake. Sprinkle with decorative sugar.
  2. Cut each Twizzler in half. Create the handle of the Easter basket by pressing the ends of the Twizzler into the cupcake with one end on each side.
  3. Press a Peeps Marshmallow Bunny into each cupcake in front of the Twizzler. Add jelly beans around the bunny.

Do you have any fun Easter plans?!
