Easter Peeps Chocolate Cookies are an easy Easter dessert recipe that will thrill children (of all ages).
Easter is a holiday where we celebrate family, life, and the gift of salvation given by our risen Savior. None of which have anything to do with Peeps… and yet… these marshmallow chicks find a way into our Easter desserts and decorations every year.

Even younger children can help decorate.
Peeps Chocolate Cookies Nesting Alternatives
To give the cookies a S’more flavor, you can use crushed graham crackers over the icing to create a nest for the Peep chick.
Prefer a salty-sweet treat? Use pretzel sticks to build a nest.
If you think coconut and Easter are a perfect match, lightly toast coconut in a warm oven (stirring often). Allow it to cool completely before topping the cookie.
