Although it is undeniably easier to drop into the nearest grocery store to pick up some ready-made Peeps for Easter Sunday, the DIY Marshmallow Peeps recipe could be a fun home project with friends or children. Whether a delicious alternative to decorating eggs or simply a homemade treat to bring into the office before the long weekend, the DIY Marshmallow Peeps is not only creative, it is a slightly healthier version of the Easter staple.

Created by Molly Yeh of Food 52, the DIY Marshmallow Peeps requires only standard ingredients including unflavored gelatin powder, colored standing sugar, sugar, light corn syrup, chocolate chips and some additional flavoring such as liqueur, herb sprigs, vanilla extract and citrus zest.
