Easter Treats With Peeps!


Easter Treats with Peeps 3

Because seriously, what is Easter without those traditional Peeps??

It’s no secret that “crunchy mama” is NOT a term that has ever been applied to me. When it comes to holidays and treats, I have to be honest-the health factor isn’t nearly as important to me as the fun factor! This year, I found some inspiration at an Easter event we went to, and Pinterest. The end result was a fun afternoon for my little guy and I. With only a few ingredients and very little effort, you can have some fun with Peeps too!

This first treat has just a few simple steps.

Once Upon A Time, in another life, Kristin graduated from the University of Michigan with a plan to teach high school math. But then, life happened when she wasn’t looking…. She married an Army guy and 23 years, 3 kids, a few dogs, 7 homes, and 2 continents later she’s now a single mom living here in Colorado Springs. Along the way she volunteered for the Army, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and several schools; managed volunteer organizations, coached judo, trained to be a whitewater rafting guide, biked down Pike’s Peak and even managed to teach some high schoolers a little math before forging new trails writing, teaching and financial planning. She never knows what’s coming around the bend, but she’s learned to handle whatever life (and the Army!), throws at her with a smile and a laugh. She’s pretty sure you can get through anything with those, even if you have to fake it occasionally!!
