It seems most people have a love/hate relationship with Marshmallow Peeps! My mom LOVES Peeps, but I despise them! But I sure love just about anything else marshmallow. ☺ And what’s not to love about the look of Peeps? They are undeniably adorable and recognizable! Today I’m sharing some fun twists I used to decorate Peeps sugar cookies with the standard Peeps shape cutter. Sure, you can replicate the look of Peeps, but there are so many other fun options. And what I also love is that you can decorate them from the front or from the back with a cute tail. If you saw THIS post, you already know that I clearly have some kind of obsession with bunny butts. With countless options, these can be very beginner friendly or as advanced as you’d like!
Since these cookies are a nod to Marshmallow Peeps and I LOVE fun flavors, these cookies are marshmallow flavor! They are so YUMMY! You can achieve this flavor by adding LorAnn Marshmallow Super Strength Flavor to THIS go-to sugar cookie recipe. In this case, I simply substituted 1/2 tsp of the vanilla for the super strength flavoring. Marshmallow has a very subtle taste so it’s hard to overdo it. Subtle, yet just enough to level-up your cookies from the standard vanilla!
Without further ado, here are some Peeps sugar cookies with beginner friendly decorating options! I hope these provide some inspiration to get creative in your kitchen!
