Ingredients
  • Edible Easter grass
  • Peeps
  • Candy eggs - I used Reese's
  • Cupcakes
  • Peanut butter or frosting
Instructions
  1. Frost a cupcake with a thin layer - just enough to get the toppings to stick.  I actually used almond butter instead of frosting to cut the sweetness a bit.
  2. Grab a small handful of the edible Easter grass. It's a little bit stiff, but just go ahead and wrap it around one of your fingers in a tight little twist. Pinch it that way for a few seconds. When you let go, it should expand out a bit. Set the newly-formed little nest on top of the frosted cupcake.
  3. Set a Peep right in the middle of the nest, squishing the base into the frosting to secure it.
  4. Take two or three of the candy eggs, and nestle them into the frosting right next to the Peep. That's it - you're ready to move on to the next one. And then next one.
  5. These would be super cute for a kids' party, baby shower, or any spring spread!
