Incorporating Peeps into Beverages, Including Adult Cocktails



Her is my third of four posts I will be sharing about how you can use everyone's favorite marshmallow treat, Peeps, in baked goods recipes, holiday centerpiece decorations and favors -- just to name a few.  Today, I will be sharing how Peeps can be added to drinks, including cocktails, to add fun and a festive feel to the glass.  Feel free to try out each and every drink, and share with friends, family and pin to your Pinterest board.  And, if you have a special drink you like making with Peeps, make sure you include comment below with a post to your recipe, or share your recipe below.  I love trying out new recipes you share. :-)  Hoppy Easter!!!
