After seeing this recipe for homemade Easter Peeps, I decided to try the recipe for myself. My sister gave me these little barnyard animal shaped molds a while ago and I thought they would work well for an Eastery, spring-time creation. Making homemade marshmallows is easier than you would think, although if there is one thing I have learned from candy-making is that it can be a sticky, messy business. I colored these little guys with food coloring and garnished them with green coconut and jelly beans. Have a very happy Easter!
