Step-by-step how-to create super sweet PEEPS Houses for your little chicks this Easter with some simple and easy-to-find ingredients. Cute and EDIBLE!

A few years ago Joy, from Yesterfood, shared her PEEPS House at my link party and ever since then, I have wanted to make my own. After 6 years, yes, 6 years, I finally did.

How To Make PEEPS Houses – The Simple Do’s

Ingredients

Ingredients for PEEPS houses

Graham Crackers – name brand ones are preferred as they are sturdier and will be less likely to break while making the houses

Frosting – I used a small container of Pillsbury white frosting and it worked perfectly


PEEPS – one package of PEEPS


Grass for PEEPS’ nests – I found edible grass at Walmart BUT if I were to make these again I would probably opt for standard grass as this cracked and was hard to manipulate into shape

Jelly beans or other small candies

Now, Let’s Put Our PEEPS Houses Together!

Directions

Break each whole graham cracker in half. You will need 6 halves for each PEEPS house.

Assemble houses on wax paper or a cookie sheet.

Glue the walls to the floor using icing.

Glue two halves together to form the roof, again using icing to join the pieces together.

Allow the walls and the roof to dry separately for approximately one hour.

Finished PEEPS Houses

Aren’t these just the cutest?

They would be so much fun to make with some littles or even some bigs 😉 The more the merrier.
