Peeps are one of the most iconic Easter candies – right up there with hollow chocolate bunnies. The colorful, sugar-coated marshmallows are enjoyed every spring by both young and old. They’re so popular, that they’re soon going to be available year-round and there are all kinds of spin-off products that allow you to enjoy Peeps in other ways. This Wilton Peeps Silicone Mold is one of those products. It’s a silicone baking pan that has 12 cavities in the shapes of Peeps chicks and bunnies, so that you can make your own Peep-themed treats at home.
The mold is both oven and freezer safe, which means that it is very versatile. You can pipe homemade marshmallows into the molds to create your own homemade Peeps that look just like the real thing. You can use them to make little gelatin Peeps, or freeze them into Easter ice cubes. You can also fill them with cupcake batter to bake bunny and chick tea cakes. Whatever you make with the pan, you’ll capture the fun of Peeps and create cute little treats that are perfect for springtime celebrations.
I spotted this pan at Michaels, but it might be available from other cake and craft stores that stock Wilton products. It’s seasonal, so it is one of those things that you need to pick up when you see it – or you might have to wait until next spring for your next chance.
