Getting Marshmallow PEEPS in my stocking was a tradition growing up and I absolutely love that they are constantly keeping the holidays fun with their new offerings. Just tried PEEPS Delights: Sugar Cookie and oh my. They tasted like rich and buttery cookies and so much more.

Marshmallow PEEPS Christmas Tree Cupcakes
I absolutely adore how cute the PEEPS Marshmallow Trees are and knew that I wanted to make a holiday recipe with them. I didn’t want these to be ordinary, so I spent time thinking of ways to make them super unique. Instead of serving traditional cupcakes I decided to set a little Christmas scene instead using frosted graham crackers. Totally loving these!
Marshmallow PEEPS Christmas Tree Cupcakes Recipe
Here’s what you need to make these:
12 Prepared cupcakes with White or Vanilla Cake Mix (Follow directions on the box)
(1) Containers White Frosting
6 Graham Cracker Sheets (halved)
(12) PEEPS Marshmallow Trees
(12) Square Shaped Taffy Candy
Holly Berries & Leaves Sprinkles
White Ball Sprinkles (Nonpareils or Sugar Pearls)
Mini Marshmallow Sprinkles
First make your cute little gifts. Using a toothpick and a tiny dab of frosting, adhere holly berries & leaves sprinkles to the top of each candy gift as the bow. Set aside to dry.
Add a thin layer of frosting to each of the cupcakes and dip each into white ball shaped sprinkles and set aside.
Frost each piece of graham cracker. Then create your cute little Christmas scene by adding the cupcake and pressing it into the frosting on the graham cracker and adding a candy gift and a PEEPS Marshmallow Tree to each. Then, fill in the space by pressing mini marshmallow sprinkles into the frosting. Let all of the frosting set before serving and handle with care.
It’s kind of crazy how easy these are to make!
