Sugary Roost

These marshmallow-crispy treats are made from chow-mein noodles instead of the usual rice cereal.

Directions:

1. In a large pot, melt 3 Tbs. butter over low heat; add 10 oz. marshmallows.
2. Cook, stirring, until mixture is melted, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and immediately stir in 5 cups chow-mein noodles until coated.
3. Use buttered fingers to shape the noodle mixture into an oval ring large enough to hold a Peeps chick in the center with a few jelly beans nestled inside.

Cottontail Cake

1. Start with a tiered, frosted cake (each tier of ours had two layers, measuring 8” and 5” in diameter).
2. Press rows of Peeps into the frosted sides of the cake.
3. Add a dollop of frosting on the top and create a ring of bunnies around it.

Tip: Save loose colored sugar at the bottom of the Peeps package and press into any white exposed marshmallow created when separating the Peeps.

Nom-Nom Necklaces

Nom-Nom Necklaces

1. Cut baker’s twine so that it is long enough that, when tied, the necklaces will fit over your child’s head; thread onto a large-eye needle.
2. Keep a dish of water and a paper towel handy for your child to dip her needle and wipe the string if they get too sticky.
3. Tie the string ends together to finish.

Tip: Adults can use a sharp needle to pre-pierce hardshelled candies like jelly beans before kids string the necklaces.
