The girls and I are getting ready for Easter, starting with these edible Marshmallow Peeps candy necklaces!
It seems that Peeps peep’ed out of store shelves earlier this year, so I started gathering as many colors as I could. I also picked up some donut-shaped gummy candies as additional “beads”. We also used baker’s twine, straws, scissors, and toothpicks.
Start by poking a hole into the Peep candy, in between the ears and head. In other words, perform a lobunnomy.
Once the straw appears on the other side, trim off the excess with scissors.
Then thread the twine through the straw, using a toothpick to help poke it through to the other side. Once the peep is centered on the twine, remove the straw carefully.
Yay! You can stop here…
…or you can keep adding on more candies and more Marshmallow Peeps.
Here’s a close-up of poking the twine through the straw with the help of a toothpick.
Marshmallow Peeps Statement Necklaces. Très Chic.
You can also package the individual ones in narrow cellophane bags for gift giving, and add a gift tag.
Wishing you all a Happy Easter!
