Everything is made better with chocolate. Just stick your Peep on a pointy object and dunk in chocolate of your choosing to make these easy marshmallow pops. Bonus points if you use leftover Easter chocolate for dipping.

The best part of Lucky Charms were always the marshmallows, right? Well, DIY it by adding Peeps to your bowl of cereal.

If you have a load of chocolate in your basket, melt it up to make chocolate bark. You can make it healthier by adding dried fruits and nuts or go crazy by adding the rest of your candy.

Anything can go on pizza, right?

Because there’s really no limit to the things you can deep fry. Not only can you encrust the Peep with anything imaginable (graham crackers, coconut, plain ol’ batter), but the Peep also melts into ooey-gooey goodness. Win-win situation all around.
