Party Peeps Eclair Cake Cups

How do you eat your marshmallow Peeps?  Can I confess to you that I like to eat them stale, but I also like them sitting on top of  Party Peeps Eclair Cake Cups.

Easter is only a week and a half away.  Have you started to think about what desserts you will be serving?   One of my all time favorite Easter treats are marshmallow Peeps, so I knew I want to incorporate these fun sugar coated marshmallows into a fun dessert that my kids would gobble up.

Party Peeps

My mom used to put them in our Easter basket every single year.  The on thing that she always did was to open the package and divide them  up between our baskets.  Now you know the problem this presents right?  Easter grass was always stuck on the Peeps.

The other problem with open Peeps?  They get stale.  Now trust me…that is NOT a problem.  Peeps are the best once they get stale.  (I have been known to open a package of Peeps and then shove them in the back of the cupboard for a month.)  Best thing ever!!!!

When I was at Walmart a few weeks ago, I noticed they had a few new Peep flavors to choose from.  I saw these bright blue chicks and I was smitten.  They are party flavored Peeps and they have some fun glittery sugar colors sprinkled on them.  I brought them home and there they sat until the day I decided to make some pudding cups.  But not just any pudding cups…these are a fun variation of Eclair Cake pudding cups.

Hello, Party Peeps Eclair Cake Cups!  Say that 10x fast!!!

I added a whole cup of party chip dry cake mix into my pudding and whisked away.  I wasn’t sure how adding cake mix to pudding was going to turn out, so I had to take a big bite…for product review :-)

The pudding tastes just like cake batter!!!  You know you all lick your bowls clean when you make cake too.  The best part of this pudding…you don’t have to worry about those pesky eggs!

Look at all the layers in these pudding cups.  I layered graham cracker crumbs with the cake batter pudding (look at the fun sprinkles in there!) and ended with a chocolate icing topping.  The marshmallow Peep got a bed of Cool Whip to sit as the topping.  Don’t you just want to dive right into these cups???

Party Peeps Eclair Cake Cups

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 16 jars (4 oz. Mason jelly jars)

Party Peeps Eclair Cake Cups

Easy no bake pudding cups topped with a marshmallow Peep is a fun way to serve dessert this Easter. The pudding mix gets a fun cake batter flavor from adding a dry cake mix when mixing.

Ingredients

1 pkg. instant French vanilla pudding mix (3.4 oz.)
1 3/4 cup milk
1 cup dry Party Chip cake mix
1 container Cool Whip (8 oz.)
3 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 container Chocolate Fudge frosting (16 oz.)
16 marshmallow Peeps
1 cup Cool Whip

Instructions

  1. Whisk together the pudding mix, cake mix, and milk for 2 minutes. Fold in the Cool Whip. Layer the graham cracker crumbs and pudding in small jars.
  2. Place the frosting in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds. Stir and repeat until pourable. Top each pudding cup with a large tablespoon of melted frosting. Refrigerate until set. Top with extra Cool Whip and marshmallow Peeps before serving. Makes 16 - 4 oz. jars.

Notes

If you don't have any jelly jars, you could also layer this in an 8x8 baking dish.

    I love to eat peeps straight out of the package. I don’t set out to make them intentionally stale, but I’ll eat them stale anyway.

    I love Peeps stale, very, very stale! Of course they look great when topping a favorite treat, but they taste better stale!!!

    I love eclair cake, and never thought of making it in jars, so cute and clever. our little peeps are so cute sitting on top of the jars!

    I had to laugh when I read that you open a package of Peeps and squirrel it away for a month until they’re perfectly stale. I do that, too, but I like to think of the stale Peeps as being ripened. LOL! That’s my favorite way to eat them, but I also love them fresh from the package.

    These are just way too cute! I bet they taste great, too. Please consider sharing them at the Saturday Dishes – Spring Desserts link up I am featuring on HammockTracks. I am sure my readers will enjoy them just as much as I have.
